    Discovery 20

    Congrats on the purchase. You WILL have fun, albeit, wet fun. My T-Gull23 used lower shrouds for mast raising while the boat was still folded. It work, but I always felt a bit rushed to get the amas folded out and main shrouds loaded. Probably unjustified.

    Mine lived the summers on a mooring so I set up and broke down once each a year. Reality, it is not a trailer sailor. I tried the amas up trailering position once. It was at best and to be polite, a fucking horror show. A realistic time with at least one other friend is 4 hours soup to nuts. Can it be done quicker, sure but as I said, one time in and one time out, so full breakdown or set up. The gentleman who bought it from me engineered the trailer to allow the boat to be assembled by one person. I don't remember the details but remembering how clever I thought it was. If you sail it on and off a mooring, it is a very easy and enjoyable boat to own. It had an asymmetrical chute which was tacked to the bow. It worked well. I didn't get around to adding a sprit but that would have been ideal.

  11. Dude, get your soul back. Seriously, mariners have existed 90% based on a man's dreams. These guys rode out that dream much longer than most. They left us with what would be a museum piece if it could fit on a wall. I think the owners hit a point where they had that deep, dark conversation where they realize they've spent everything. I hope someone picks this up with the ability to fund it and have fun with it. It's a legendary craft. Without dreams and craziness li,e this, we would all aspire to sail 1977 j24s and the sport would have died in 1979...Here's the THING Momp: They DIDN'T have that Deep, dark conversation with the guy they stuck with their very large boat - you know, the guy that runs a BUSINESS, not a museum. I'm at least as much a fan of craziness as the next guy, I just don't think I have the right to stick someone else with the tab for my dreams. - What do you think the reception the NEXT big Tri is going to have when they ask for a little bit of courtesy there ? Here's the point. I was focused on the boat and its future. Not some business owner's issues.. There are laws in place for this type of event, right? If the right thing to do is sell it off, do it at a profit if possible. Just a shame it's this boat and not some 4ksb.
  12. Yes Shark, way to interpret. Same skill as my ex wife...... Impressive......

    Artemis?

    When will the guillotine drop and on whom? I like all of the personalities at Artemis, but am seeing a story repeat itself again and again. At the end of the day, results matter. Excuses buy you time, at best. They are not a first year team. They do not have financial concerns. They do not have talent concerns. So why are they shitting the bed so frequently? Bad chemistry? Bad luck, no doubt, but change that. Bad management? Don't see that as an issue. So much promise but so little consistency other than not at the top.....
