    Scattering ashes at sea.

    at least in the US, burial at sea of cremains must take place outside the 3 mile line and only on "ocean waters" at least 600 feet deep. It must then be reported to the EPA within 30 days of burial.

    New foulies?

    NIKWAX TX Direct works well as does the NIKWAX wash in DWR application. I don't find it lasts more than a season though.

    Line Honors folded?

    these drop ship chandleries are the absolute worst. i once ordered a spray top listed as "in stock" with no notice that its actually shipping from a warehouse multiple states away and would take 3 months to arrive.

    Hand Bearing Compasses

    so it seems like the Weems & Plath is the go-to puck-style compass based on my observations. Is it "better" than the Plastimo? Should I consider something else?

    Which is the J boat that few like?

    except for the fact that the 109 more or less can't completely outsail a J35 which is 20 years her junior, I've never heard much hate about the 109. Personally, they are my favorite racer/cruiser J boat going.
  10. good update here: kudos to Peter Cronin (former Mudrat) for rendering assistance

    Which is the J boat that few like?

    problem with the J34 is that it took 10 people on the rail to go slower than a J35 or a J29. just painful all around.

    did they chop up the J41 to make the J39? the J34C is weird....almost looks like an Cal from a distance

    Draft Racing Rules 2021-2024 are out

    the RC may now score a boat that does not complete the course as NSC (did not sail the course) without a hearing rather than protesting
