    what is it?

    Forgot about 45 degrees south. 1975 champs, sistership Why Why was 1976, and Carl Schumacher's Summertime Dream in 1977? Don't ask me what I just had for lunch, it's already forgotten, and no clue why I remember these antiquated sailing stats... ;-)

    what is it?

    North Star 727, based on "Why Why", 1/4 ton world champ the year before. Sailed on the first one on the west coast, summer of 1977 (out of Santa Cruz; Bill Lee wound up owning her after the first owner's group). Nice boats for the day.

    Didn't she sink, perhaps in a Coastal Cup?

    Used Car Anarchy

    After 5 months of owning my first 2017 brand new Durango, it's dash lit up like a Christmas tree so off to the dealer it went. A few days later they said 'good as new', and I didn't even get 3 miles from the dealer before the same thing. They had it for 5 weeks and still didn't know what was wrong, had replaced almost all of the wiring harnesses / etc. and still couldn't get it to function. Bought back as a lemon. So, good luck if you buy it. If you really know cars and can troubleshoot and repair them better than the dealer, go for it. Otherwise, seems like you are buying a lemon without a warranty. Caveat emptor.

    Large Tankers off West Coast

    Have you gone to one of the vessel tracking apps to see what's out there? Interesting subject, thanks Chris.

    Antrim 27's, how many

    That's in the ballpark, though Jim feels that's an optimistic total savings. And yes, buy a lotto ticket. Surprised it was only a 3 second hit.

    Antrim 27's, how many

    Yes to both, resulting in the displacement remained the same. Performance will be improved with both and particularly the square head main.

    Antrim 27's, how many

    Displacement didn't change. Built in Moss Landing, near Watsonville.

    Correct, and where you sail, that main would be a giant killer. And only a 3 second a mile rating hit...

    Probably 10 knots.
