    Anchored off shore? Anchoring and oceans do not mix in my experience. Maybe he was thinking of Alex on Guadalupe?

    PHRF is not run by self-interested clowns

    PHRF obviously has considered a lot of variables, boat data, conditions and performance to establish accurate ratings cuz we are winning often. I luv phrf. hey my boat builder helps them assign ratings. What could be wrong with that.
  3. Any info on what happened to this Oyster 66. rig was cut away above the gooseneck. Stern Sat domes were damaged and the arch crushed. Tangled with bridge in current?

    Oyster 66 rig damaged in west palm beach

    front looks good. Bow deck not so much. Hydraulic oil ya know
  5. Greyhound37

    This should end well

    oars come out the bottom windows maybe. Or maybe it has 6 outboards like todays trends. That bow does not look effective in light air but with no rig it should not matter much

    J/88

    The Chesapeake Bay only has two 88's racing that I am aware of and the second one does not compete in local distance. Not sure if its North or Quantum. I had North first but the main drove me to drink so now I am all Quantum.

    BTW 8 88's signed up for Charleston Race week 5 months out. Impressive. That will be my first one design race in any boat.

    Fortunately there aren't many of the bearing cars. 4 if memory serves. We use the 4" section of track that came with the boat to remove the cars, invert and tape.

    Charleston Race Week 2019

    5 months to go before the event and there are 52 boats registered and 8 J-88's. I am thinking this event is going to be sweet.
  10. I have a Musto jacket that was dry for many years. Now the water runs through it pretty quickly. Any tricks to renew the water proofing? Hate to through it out. If I can treat it and use it for a back up.

    North 3Di vs Quantum Fusion M 9000

    maybe it depends on the boat but I was disappointed with the North design of the sails and immediately replaced them with Quantum. now I am on my second set of Q for this boat
  12. Race is just over 2 weeks away and we are down 110 entrants. What's up? Hell the Navy 44's have not signed up!

    must have been light air, 10 knots or less reaching
  14. Gee a friend of mine asked so I thought I would post.... J boat under 30 feet. So when a boat owner signs up for a regatta out of town and has a rock star crew come in for the event how are the expenses typically handled. I agree that the boat owner should insure the boat is well prepared and not repossessed during the event but how about the bigees: pro rigger takes the rig down, packs for transport and re rigs at the event. Then re-pack for transport, $10,000. house on the beach for one week even though its a 3 day event...……………………………………………………………….$6,500. event registration, stocking the house and party costs...………………………………………………………………………………..$2,000. Porsche turbo Macan for the bow gal during the event...………………………………………………………………………………..$750. laundry, misc hookers and blow...………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….$2,500. Total...………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………...21,750, or so wudya think?

    Yes, obsessed with racing

    What boats?

    The center cockpit is a Hinckley no question. Having owned 3 C&C's I say the first is not. Not sure what it is though

    EU VAT Question

    Does the below rule apply if the boat came to the US in the mid 90's and now wants to return or is VAT due. Pleasure yachts built pre-1985 and in EU waters on 31st December 1992 are treated as VAT paid. Evidence that the yacht was in EU waters on this date may be required.

    EU VAT Question

    Excellent!
  19. Greyhound37

    EU VAT Question

    good info thanks. The boat is a Feadship that has been in the US since '96.

    what's your top boatspeed in a J boat?

    Our J-88 has not been in big air but the NASS race to Oxford this year had us at 14.5 to 16.7 speed over the bottom. Wind was 18-23 never consistent

    A flip flop washes up on a beach

    There is also a display of huge fish and birds sculptures all created from ocean plastic touring the country. Impressive.

    J/88

    The J-88 continues to be an effective PHRF tool. Annapolis YC race to Solomons 1st in A-2 and 5th in fleet of 60 boats. It helps to have downwind conditions and reaching :-) 4 races, 3 firsts and one second to the Donovan 26 is a downwind 15-23 kts. Very fun platform
