    boat advice requested

    I like the Bucc 18 and solo'd it the majority of the time. That said I'm 6'5" and 250#s and it took all of my size to keep her under control at times. If you're looking at that size of boat the Highlander is another fun one.

    Craigslist Finds

    What people ask for and what they sell for are two different things.

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    I think anyone who mentions libel on S.A. should get the immediate ban-hammer.

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Let's take the music to the land where all future lasers torches will be built... Please... no more Bieber... it's just wrong.
  9. You also need RS100, Raider and CL Stealth I've been told by several folks (RS reps, and others) that the RS100 is woefully too small for me. The Raider and the CL Stealth are really small builds... I'd probably go for the VX Evo long before I'd go for one of those... heck I'd probably go Megabyte before those... just for support reasons alone. If I run across one you better know I'm going to give it a go... at this point I've written nothing off... the future is full of possibilities.
  10. Update: Racing at the Force5 regatta in Bloomington this weekend. C'mon WIND! (forecast looks really light for Saturday, ugh.) Megabyte for demo six hours away... haven't found a time to schedule that yet. Local Finn guy has been quiet. Confirmation that there's no ICs nearby or in Michigan from two in the know IC sources. Looking to see if I can demo any boats in the Tampa Bay area (Florida) when I visit my folks in July. I've been told there will be a VX-Evo at the VX-One North Americas in September in Holland MI (<5hours away) so I might try to be there for a demo.
  11. I've not bought my next boat yet, thanks. I'm working on demoing a couple... demoing sailboats when you live in the middle of nowhere isn't easy. :-)

    The VX Evo

    Things have evolved. 3 different main sail sizes can accommodate a larger weight range. Like the Laser, Laser radial and Laser 4.7? Three different starts? Like the Melges 14 5m,7m,9m sails... Like the RS Aero 5m,7m,9m sails... Seems to be a trend.

    The VX Evo

    Everything I've read says the VX-EVO has a centerboard. Please post a link where it says it's gone to a dagger-board.

    The VX Evo

    Ok thanks, that's probably where i stopped reading. Where does this thing fit in compared to the similar devoti and rs100? Well for one the Devoti D-Zero and the RS100 are both dagger-board boats... The VX Evo is aimed at a larger helm. There's many other differences but I figured you stopped reading at the second sentence.

    The VX Evo

    LOL... it's a centerboard boat.
