    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.

    Discovery 20

    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.

    I can see Jimmy getting a director role in a Australian challenge. I can see Barker getting a role within the AC management.

    Potential AC36 teams get talking

    Why are people convinced that OUSA are out? This is pocket change to Larry. He's an older guy. He may just be enjoying himself. people say the cup survived long periods between wars and was just fine. Different time, different funding. Not compatible to today short attention span public. foiling mono is fucking stupid. Why start all over again. There will be 50s available to buy. Bigger teams can sell their packages, keep the momentum going. I agree with loosing the human hamsters. Steer the design to the course where it will be raced but keep the boat similar enough for smaller or newer teams to build from. and let this one sink in. A bunch of sheep shaggers beat Airbus in foil development..... they beat BMW in control systems and ergonomics. why would they want to walk away from a huge head start moving into 36?
