    Brodie- I think that was me! Thank you again, you saved us that night. If I remember correctly you had a mooring over at Clark's? Bob- Class rules permit vangs however the geometry of anchoring it to the mast is poor. There is a history in the class of attempts at vangs however with the length of the boom there is also a history of snapping booms. For a few years the class permitted aluminum booms and masts (due to difficulty sourcing wooden ones) and I believe the aluminum booms took the load better. Presently, most of us are on the lookout for a fat guy who will sit in the main on the downwind legs and trust us not to jibe...

    I'm massively biased and though it has been used for cruising and even a honeymoon - I think the Herreshoff S boats deserve a mention in this thread. What might add to your consideration is that if any of you are willing to risk the splinters, the Narraganestt Bay fleet will welcome you aboard on for a sail or a race Tuesday nights (One Design) Wednesday nights (PHRF) or at one of our weekend regattas. There are also boats available for charter. More information posted at https://sites.google.com/site/nbhsca/ or please PM me. Cheers-
