    All-New Velocitek ProStart

    You nerds wrote a manual? That’s so 2015 of you. In the 2020 marine electronics game you just post renderings, tell the people what you think they want to hear and boom! you’ll be famous!

    Traveler control line

    I’m with you on docklines. But if you’re racing you want to transfer as much power to keel as possible. Traveler lines included. I like an SK78 core and I’m not that picky about the cover.

    If the battery is DoA you may have a bigger problem... What’s the return policy? What’s the warranty policy?

    High humidity killed one of these things? I’ll be sure to only use mine in a ziplock bag full of rice. ScowLover - when you sailed with it on this fatefully humid day was it salt water or fresh?

    With a 320 x 240 pixel LCD do you think they can actually create those pages?

    charlie enright

    No. He was skipper of the boat that suspended racing and stood by in case they needed to help. IIRC they relayed comms between the grounded boat and race headquarters.

    North Sails "Norlam" - What is it?

    That might be a bit of an oversimplification. North’s got a cloth department and looms. I think they weave/wove Nordac. They likely buy the yarn but if you’re breaking it down that far who really makes anything? I think they're pretty good about telling you when you’re buying a 3rd party cloth (ie Airx kites).

    I think it may have become North Panel Laminate

    All it took to get a response for a warranty claim on a $1,300 bit of kit was 2 months and one SA forum post. Nice! I’ll take one and charge me double!
