    How can Trump be so heartless to say no

    Surely some are Soros-paid activists?
  2. ^that's what I was getting at. Have seen Thistle getting towed dry a few times and they usually pack it in for the day afterwards. Sounds like you are up to speed on the possibility at any rate.
  3. From a non-Thistle sailor, asking for boat specific clarification... When a Thistle swamps you kick out the transom flaps after righting the boat and then a powerboat tows the boat until most of the water exits through the holes. You've had outside assistance so at least that race is over. Do I have that right? Would you ever open the flaps without a tow? Seems anything more sophisticated than tape or Insignia cloth is maybe more effort than required?

    Isn't the Zim 15 aimed at the "youth dinghy, 7% more exciting" market.

  7. 2 thistle salors own the Crosswinds marina at Jordan Lake. Go launch there and you may get some help if they happen to be there that day.

    Celebrities should STFU about politics unless they are Trump, Nugent, Eastwood, etc.

    Fuck you America and your litigious society.

    The Germans did pretty damn well without very much US aid at all. I suppose a lot of advantage goes to the agressor though.

    New Olympic Dinghy Selection

    How does the Melges look up close? In images it doesn't looks as good as the others, to me. Row away factor counts a little with dinghies too.

    Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Willing to compare delorme drift rate data on any future rimas "power"boat voyages when if it happens. He would still need a tow outside the gate, I reckon.

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    So that was pretty much a reboot of kirby v Rasty with GSL in place of kirby at the top instead and then dismissed for plaintiff counsel being a bit sloppy? (I've read about 3 words per page of that)

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Anything about the current state of the case linkable? It seemed to go dark after the court ruled Kirby didn't have standing.

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    We should have a new Olympic dinghy selection thread so we don't get this thread derailed too far from the important discussion of Kirby v Rastegar, et al.
