    Identifying boats in movies

    Only Elvis could get 19 girls aboard a Cheoy Lee Lion 35.
  2. I wear a beach umbrella with a foam filled tube. Buoyant and more sail area for free. WIN/WIN.

    inexperienced couple buy a p.o.s. catamaran

    I disagree, they're one fouled spark plug, cleat failure, chop over 2 feet, 30 knots sustained breeze, or countless other options away from spectacular disaster. You have to put in the work to enjoy the mayhem when it happens. And happen it will.

    Damn this ep really trailed off. I don't know why I expected the content to be entertaining, but they'd done a decent job thus far.

    8 Bells for Tony Esposito.

    Never knew the man personally, but he built a truly legendary program. My condolences to the Espo, and extended Hustler family.

    A free boat, the cleaning miracle

    If you're going to try to troll, at least learn how to insert pictures into your posts. Also you might be surprised to learn that it's a bit harder to kill yourself falling from one meter than you might think.

    Would be curious to know why the rutters were removed and the sugar scoops added. It's a modification that truly boggles the mind.

    Greta Rides Again?

    Just checking in to see what the D'ranger "I quit this thread" count is up to?

    52 Super Series Thread

    They also weren't live for this event. They will be in the next one. It seems like you've not really been following this series and the effort they put into their media. It really is second to none. Watch the next series, they usually livestream, highlight and post full recap; report back what you think. I think most people realize that marketing explicitly to racers isn't really a viable business model. This seems to do a decent job at touching on it enough to recap well while not being super lame(I presume) and boring to non-racers/sailors. AC is trash and so are the boats, it's gotten way way too niche.
  10. Give it time. and ffs learn to multi quote (edit) ahem:
  11. Moral of the story: Bloodsucking lawyers win again? Yay modern times.

    52 Super Series Thread

    I think the media for the highlights isn't half bad for those just trying to catch up. Not everyone needs or wants to plug four hours away watching a two race regatta on their computers. That said, catch one live streaming for all the non-fluff you're craving. They even seem to have an app. Be just a touch less lazy and the footage you're seeking will find you. I really enjoy what Dan has done with the 52 Super Series and its media; best series out there bar none.

    WHY? Take a few deep breaths my dude.

    Lake Michigan waves

    Breaking news: waves on shore breaks look big. Also, water is wet. More news at 10.

    Competitor license?

    The licensing system is more about taking more money out of taxpayers pockets than it is about safety. Good idea in theory, no way to implement it efficiently unless self(club, local sailing authority) governed.
