    Keelboat with short or high boom

    Pretty sure I could stand under the boom in my C&C24.

    Mobile wind sculptures

    While not technically sailing, or a boat, these are pretty cool, moving sculptures. I just hope the artist doesn't in fact leave his plastic creations to "live" on the beaches of Holland though.

    What are your boat projects?

    As for boat projects, well.... I need to get the 2GM20F sat in my garage running Tear out the 1GM10 that's in the boat and attempt to fit the 2GM20F in its place which means probably a shit ton of other things I'll have to do to get that to work. Attempt to get the 1GM10 running properly and sell it, to hopefully recoup some of the costs of the 2GM20F transplant. New standing rigging. Bunch of small deck jobs. Rewire. Replumb. Sand and paint, new zincs etc. Fix the outhaul. Drop the rudder and replace the bearings. Oh and I have a Mirror dinghy kit still sat in my garage waiting to be built. And probably a ton of other things that inevitably crop-up as soon as you start one job.

    Neat, good luck (which may or may not mean getting the boat!).

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    Not entirely sure what the plan will be, but thanks for the heads-up PL.

    But then we'd have less to mock on this thread.

    Ishmael - I'm keeping my C&C, the SC will be the replacement for our increasingly shit J24, strictly for racing shenanigans.

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    So I bought her. No real issues, other than a easily repairable crack from sitting on the trailer for so long, and it all needs re-assembling or bits replacing - she's not been in the water for a long, long time. Needs a couple of new tyres for the trailer, and probably the bearings done before I can haul her out of their garden Even dug out a reaching strut for it. There's also a ton of very vintage sails, I'm hoping the blooper is usable for a bit of a laugh too. Hopefully we'll be racing on her before the end of the summer.

    Totally lost...

    Yamaha 30? Not that quick but well thought out and well built, and very cruise-friendly.

    Iridium and windows updates

    You can set network connections to be metered, which in theory stops updates downloading. There used to be some registry hacks to nobbe updates as well but I don't think they work anymore.

    Free to a good home- Mirror Dinghy -Port Phillip

    I've got a mid-1970's Mirror kit sat in my garage. At some point I'll get round to building her.
