    Sun Fast 3300

    Run an internal bungee and ring at the hounds. Stretches on the set and retracts on the douse to help prevent this issue.

    Heavy duty sewing machine

    Just scored this original Pfaff 130 with industrial motor and butcher block maple bench top. Purrs like a kitty.

    Another Pipedream to take on Buckos Foiler

    Add in all the shit you are going to break during testing before you are happy with the results. No thanks.

    Somewhat fast boats with standing headroom

    If you need 6'10" of headroom you may be SOL. Wear a hat, get height reduction surgery, or buy a 40 footer.

    So Cal Trailer Paint

    I've done the spray on zinc. Not impressed, it scratches off easily. Go Galvanized!. Worth the up front cost.

    Assym chute, preferred set

    Apples and Oranges. Top Downs work well for cruisers, not buoy racing.

    Not sure how fast you want to go but Columbia has 5'10" of headroom. A great perk after stepping off other boats with only a crawl space and in the same rating band. I think the Tiger has roughly the same as well.

    It cost what it cost. More than I would have anticipated but who knows what's under the hood and all of the development time involved... Only SE knows. This doesn't look like a Garage Project. This looks incredibly well thought out and executed in almost every detail. Is everyone going to go out and do this to their ride? No. Is it new and interesting? Yes. Will we see more boats like this in some form or another? Perhaps.

    Not sure where you got that figure from. The fact that someone someone actually did it and appears to have executed it very well is the cool part.

    If you're referring to the Easom J100 Eight Ball, along with the power systems, the sails also have a big impact on the rating including what appears to be a Masthead Genoa mounted forward on a Sprit. All of this, not original to the factory spec of the boat. I would think there is a big penalty for that but probably worth it judging by how well the boat is moving in the video. All of it looks very nicely done and well thought out.

    She's Flying...Again

    Those things still holding up? Must be the most expensive boats covers in the world .

    1000 Daze at Sea

    SWEET COVERALLS! Where can one purchase?

    Assym chute, preferred set

    Both are using Zipper Foots. They break apart automatically when the kite fills. Nice setup for avoiding the dunk of doom.

    Nonskid for foredeck

    The Kiwi Grip system will look like absolute dog shit if not prepped and rolled properly. If done correctly, it's even, stays clean, its awesome. Not for a first timer doing a whole boat though.
