    Is The Thrill Gone?

    I can relate. After 65 races in mostly Porsche cup cars one day at Sebring sitting on the grid in the 5th row out of 40 I radioed my co driver that I was only doing one lap and going home. Sell the car, truck, trailer... I have lost confidence and am done.

    J/125 - A Real Unicorn

    Can a 125 go upwind in light air with other PHRF 0 rated boats?

    Asking and selling are miles apart. Last sale I found was $252K. Still a lot of money for a 20 year old 41' race boat. 5 boats sold in the 170-215 zone in the last 5 years so they did tick up.

    How much to pay a Captain

    full time captain 60' or less is $60-70K annual. Small boat captain is typically engineer type doing 40K in maintenance annually so the 60-70 is a bargain

    The Farr 42 was donated by Northpoint in 2017. She left Jabins. Not sure where she is.

    How bad does the Navy have to suck...

    Sure sounds like electronic engine control failure regardless of who was on the bridge. When the controls get wacky its game over

    boating dumbfuckery

    I wait for a weather windows to avoid St A to Beaufort NC on the inside stopping each night. This year I had to come in to the Cape Fear and continue on the waterway. I was early enough that the traffic was light but still a pia.

    That Farr 42 is very interesting.

    everyone zhould own a J-88 and be done with it I raced many events with this boat (S-38) and was impressed with her prep and performance. The value analysis provided in this thread appears spot on regardless of the boats health.

    Annapolis Capital interviewed one of the owners who said the head stay tang failed while close reaching in 8' waves and 20-25 knot winds.

    The Beneteau Figaro 3 was the only boat to head east to the gulf stream then tack. He is now 40 miles ahead of his group start after 350 miles. I am surprised Prospector does not have swept back spreaders. Is that because he has runners?
