    flattening Perfection paint

    This stuff works perfectly. You can add a little or a lot to adjust how flat you want. There is a Flattening Agent for both one part and two part paints. As mentioned, stick with one manufacturer.

    135% on a Tartan Ten

    Be careful with this option. Currently boats are reviewed individually for sym vs. assy . for W/L and for CR courses. Also, Code 0's are being looked at closely and are liable to be viewed as an oversized headsail = penalty. Talk to your local PHRF handicapper.

    Most egregious cheats?

    I think the actual rule is motor out of gear at prep. Motor can be run at any time for charging batteries.

    New Rudder for Martin 32 - Western Canada

    This is the guy you want. He's built me a rudder for my old Hobie 33 and a new tiller for current boat Tripp 38. Flawless and fast.

    awlgrip repair kit

    What do you mean by "touch up"? Just a nic or small scratch? Or bigger. Per the Awlgrip people, Awlgrip does not touch up well. Awlcraft 2000 on the other hand can be repaired. One can be rolled and tipped, the other is spray only. Try searching some on YouTube. There are helpful vids on the products.

    Not gooseshit shoal, duckshit shoal named for the duck farm on the shore. 10' deep to 4' deep and like a wall but all sand. You don't so much run aground as bounce off it. How did you get hooked up with the Meridian boys?

    Taylor 40 ML Meridian

    Yea, we did hit a little C&C 30 a few years back. They had sailed up under us about 2-3 boat lengths away. Our tiller extension broke off heading DDW in 20+ kn and we chinese jibed into their rear quarter. No damage to us, but a lot to the C&C. Larry had done a lot of updates, we continued with replacing the standing rigging, re-powering w/3gm30 Yanmar, fresh paint inside plus mast and topsides to be done this winter, new electronics....anyway, lots of work. The other boat (Fiti) is in St Pete and we help crew at NOODS for the last 5 or 6 years. Both still out point most anything and are still stiff. Leroi

    Scooter Talking Trash bout his Competition

    The boats are nearing 40 yrs. old. Installing ring frames may be more of a structural necessity than a mod. Alterations to transom, outboard well, cockpits should be reviewed by the PHRF board which generally frowns on mods, assuming that any mod is to make the boat faster, not slower. Does anyone know what the rating of the boat in question actually is and does it reflect any mods? If so, what were the mods.....Questioning minds want to know.
