  2. Of.......off the displacement......... need to proof read before finishing
  3. Yes, another 100sq ft in the main would help in lighter airs..... and 2,000lbs of the displacement would help in heavier airs downwind

    whats up with West Marine?

    So Monkey....you work for Brunswick?......hate to say but I think this may be a blip.....in 2 years time when all these barely used boats come back on the market the bottom will drop out again....(from some one who used to work for BC for 13 years)
  5. For something out of left field https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1992/tripp-55-custom-3598023/ amazing boat.....lots of budget left to get it ‘just so’....... Great for Bermuda and back no interest in the boat, just sailed it (a lot) back when it was new and want somebody to give it a real second life as a really fast cruiser/racer.....if that lottery ticket comes in.........
  6. I always think the 52 is slightly undercanvassed, for racing which can make it just about perfect for cruising, lighter displacement (by a lot) so still good performance until you load it down with too much stuff.....
  7. Why not an SC 52, boat I used to race is now set for cruising, Dutchman main, roller furling and a removable sprit for an asso, Grinder off and electric primaries, dodger on...... overall a pretty good setup for cruising IMO 3 on the market (according to Yacht world) lucky duck has been raced a lot but the other 2 would leave plenty of money in the budget for upgrades etc

    Thoughts on this 27' boat

    Basically a Soling with a lid. Did Cowes week in one back when I was a kid (maybe 1982?) easy boat to sail 3 up and a nice Little cabin.

    yellow fever

    Ha, worked at Ian Terry Engineering when we made them......used offcuts from nuclear power station cooling tubes....much cheaper than buying new titanium grade 2 tubes.....

    Yacht management service?

    BBY is also different in one key area......Steve White sold the yard to the employees......so that guy sharpening the knives is a part owner and shares in the overall results as well, not just an hourly wage. spent many a mile on a BBY built boat - great times (a good few years ago now!)

    LA Yacht club new coastal race series.

    Hardway still a thing for a few boats, last I did we spent 4 hrs bobbing within sight of the SBYC before the wind filled and then did 23 knots through the gap under main and blast reacher until the BR blew.....
  14. Shit, 17 minutes to find the original owner......way better than some of Scots ‘what is it’ this place is pretty amazing!

    IOR Lives!

    George Carlin 'The History And Many Uses Of The Word Fuck' Perhaps one of the most interesting words in the english language today, is the word f***. out of all of the english words which begin with the letter f, f*** is the only word referred to as the "f" word, it's the one magical word. fuck as most words in the english language, is derived from german, the word "fricken[?]", which means to strike. in english, f*** falls into many grammatical categories. As a transitive verb, for instance. john fuck-ed shirley. as an intransitive verb, shirley fucks. it's meaning's not always sexual; it can be used as an adjective, such as john's doing all the fuck-ing work. as part of an adverb, shirley talks too fuck-ing much. as an adverb enhancing an adjective, shirley is fuck-ing beautiful. as a noun, i don't give a f***. as part of a word abso-fucking-lutely, or in-fucking-credible. and, as almost every word in the sentence, fuck the fuck-ing fuck-ers. As you must realize, there aren't too many words with the versatility of f***. as in these examples describing situations such as fraud, i got fuck-ed at the used car lot. dismay, aw f*** it. trouble, i guess i'm really fuck-ed now. agression, don't f*** with me buddy. difficulty, i don't understand this fuck-ing question. inquiry, who the f*** was that? dissatisfaction, i don't like what the f*** is going on here. incompetence, he's a fuck-off. dismissal, why don't you go outside and play hide-and-go-fuck yourself? I'm sure you can think of many more examples. with all these multi purpose applications, how can anyone be offended when you use the word? we say, use this unique, flexible word more often in your daily speech. it will identify the quality of your character immediately. say it loudly, and proudly! fuck you!
