    Are there any full race replays of the past week racing? I can only find highlights.

    A/C or Dehumidifier?

    40 foot boat. I am on the Gulf Coast, lots of humidity year round. I have used a dehumidifier for a few years, always a pain to move on and off the boat. I recently added A/C to my boat. When at the slip/dock, should I leave the A/C running all the time? With dehumidifier the boat was always dry, but also a little warm. With the A/c, boat is cool and fells dry, not as much as with the dehumidifier. What do most of you do, Leave A/C on all the time or use a dehumidifier? EDIT, if I don't use either, the boat gets musty and mold grows if I am away for any period of time.

    Cal, You are an asshole, and obviously have been one since the 90's.
  5. Any recommendations and links to an interesting sailing race video?

    2019 52 SUPER SERIES

    I would like to see full race coverage, like the Star Sailors League does. Does not have to be live. Its great to sit down and watch an hour of sailing competition. Also enjoyed the few Terry Hutch / Quantum full race videos, would like to see more of those. The 52 owners wold probably like the full race videos also, and certainly have the pockets to fund it.
  7. My cockpit seats are teak strips, set in a depression with the black caulking joints. They have become worn and rough from previous owner pressure washing to clean them. Where to buy the teak strips/boards for cockpit seats? Approximately 1-1/2" wide, 1/4" thick, various lengths needed from 18" to 30". Other alternative is the vinyl fake teak, anybody try this material and how did it come out?

    Best lazy jack system, dropping mainsail control

    Thanks to all for the great responses and ideas. I will probably fabricate my own, using a system that pulls back to the mast when not in use.

    Best lazy jack system, dropping mainsail control

    Great responses, thanks. I like the sketch, and look forward to the photo of the test model. I like to know if anybody actually has some made with dyneema/spectra without rings or blocks, and if the line passes through the eyesplice without trouble. Thanks again.
  10. When I have a crew, no problem dropping and flaking the main. But, when I am sailing by myself or with one other, dropping the mainsail and flaking it is a real pain and almost impossible in breeze. I have done the google search, but hope you can lead me to the best system, one that I can move forward or get out of the way when racing.

    Heavy Metal

    Thanks for the correction, the transom is a sweet look. The boat is well sailed.

    Heavy Metal

    After the owner of Heavy Metal passed away, a friend of the family had the boat shipped to Harahan, a suburb of New Orleans, to a warehouse below the Huey P. Long bridge. The new owner had a steel fabricating business and the dream was to fit out the interior and take the boat cruising. I saw the boat there 20 years ago, don't know what happened after that. The past couple of years Lee Creekmore has been successfully sailing his self designed / built wooden boat "Scoundrel" in the Gulf Yachting Association Challenge Cup series as an entry from the Mobile Yacht Club.

    new stiletto? any news on this cat?

    Hull profile is very similar to the Viva 27. Much nicer, more modern deck layout.

    Great Circle Sails?

    Care to explain? Or is it sarcasm because you don't know anything about the sail maker Great Circle Sails?

    Great Circle Sails?

    (Posted in Cruising Anarchy, but since I race I thought it better to post here also.) 41 ft C/R looking for a new main, and have a quote from Great Circle. While I know Brian Hancock gets some grief here, I tend to trust his knowledge. Anyone with first/second hand experience with their sails?
