    Farr 36 - Toy Story

    That was my thought...

    Jib up with assym on sportboat?

    We have a Viper 830 and usually keep the jib up unless it's light. We've experimented either way and it seems even or a bit faster with the jib up. We do have a fairly long sprit though so I'm sure the separation makes a bid difference. If in doubt, we take the jib down. What type of sportboat are you sailing?

    Farr 36 - Toy Story

    You say the you were beating it with a Farr 40 OD... How were the boats rated relatively speaking? (it's understood that the IRC rating would be laughable)

    Farr 36 - Toy Story

    Not seriously interested but always looking... What's the deal on Toy Story - the canting keep Farr 36 that's been for sale in Australia now for a while? On paper the boat looks like good value... Does is sail to it's rating? Is it in descent shape? Is the keel system well sorted? Thanks, MH

    J/99 anyone have info beyond the teaser?

    J is going to run out of numbers soon in the 10m rage at this rate.

    Well, most of the need to be in Chicago by Saturday morning.
  8. Sure, they should sell them to you at cost. I'm sure they don't need to pay rent, salaries, advertising, insurance, utilities...

    How functional is the interior of the FT10m? (asking for my wife)

    Which three Asymmetrics?

    When we add another kite, it will be an A1.5. We find the A2 fine in planing conditions as long as we're doing WL's. An A1.5 would be better in the lighter stuff but we haven't had any speed issues in those conditions against the boats we typically race against so we haven't see the need just yet. The A2 is definitely the workhorse of our inventory.

    Which three Asymmetrics?

    We use a A2, A3 and A0 on the Viper.

    Soft Jib Hanks

    We use the same soft webbing / buckle hanks. No issues at all and unlike brass hanks, spin sheets don't hang up on them.

    Foam deck

    We've had a Hydro Turf cockpit for 2 years now with little discernible wear. The boat is covered when not in use though. Great product and fairly inexpensive. If you go this route, buy their seconds. We really couldn't tell where the blemishes were.
