    Gougeon 32 Roll Call

    Yup, that's the one. Stopped by today to say hi, he was chilling just south of Shadyside. Man, what a cool boat.

    Sorry for the confusing link to no where. I posted the same meanigless topic in sportboat anarchy, thinking I was posting here. I'm willing to trade $ for your Wabbit.

  6. The boat looks amazing! Congratz to Dave, Steve and team! Looks like some strong S wind Monday, will have to convince Dave to stick around for a few more hours
  7. Yes. The foils are collapseable which also means that horizontals are removable and swappable. However, what you'd want more than that is to set the ride height (easy) to foil-assist only mode. This limits programming of the foils to what I call hyperplaning mode, where they'll provide lift until the boat is barely making contact with the water but no further. That's a hell of a lot of fun. After getting used to that, you'd dial in another 3 or so inches of ride height and start to learn foiling while keeping the training wheels pretty close to the road. Crank ride height up to taste as you progress. DRC I had a ~200 pounder out on my boat the other day. Nice 10-12 kts, the dude was flying around happily, first time out on a moth. Got back to shore and started browsing mothmart Sam got a shit session, 0 to 8 kts ... maybe foilable in the puffs, but not as a moth noob. Anyways, A-cat seems like a good choice since at least there's a local fleet where we sail. Sorry for the slight thread high-jack!
  8. But Sam, it was your first time on a moth! Sad that you based your decision on that single day. A bit more practice and you would have been flying quite a bit more.

    It's pretty amazing the variance that you get when you look at wood spec's (~+/-100kg/m3): Obeche: 380kg/m3 WRC: 356kg/m3 Kiri/Paulownia: 280kg/m3 Balsa: 160kg/m3

    Sorry for the slight thread high jack. It's around 6-7$/BF in "large" enough quantities, so similar to cedar. I forgot what was the minimum order, but more than the 30BF or so I needed. Is this where you've been looking at Paulonia? http://www.worldpaulownia.com/html/blank.html Nope, there's a lumber yard in MD that sales various kind of paulownia. If you're interested I could pm you the phone#/email of the contact person. It's known as kiri down under, maybe somebody from down S will tell us all about it?

    Better be good stuff! Northern white has similar properties and is a lot cheaper, at least here in MD.
