    Checkered Demon is sailed actively in eastern Long Island sound. Looks like it’s in perfect shape. Pictures at Photo Boat under Off Soundings.

    My whole life for the first fourty years was about racing sailboats. From Larchmont junior race week to the sorc to America’s cup campaigns that’s all I cared about. Then a bad marriage and eight years off it’s still all I know!!!

    Must have hit it inadvertently. Don’t care about all the social media nonsense. But I do like old IOR boats because I was part of it all back when things were right in the world!!

    Dobroth MORC 30

    Mokuahi. The old Razzle Dazzle. Boat almost won the circuit in 1983. Did Admirals Cup trials on her. Brandans best was Coog. Then Walter Hansen bought it and named it Midnight Tiger. As long as it was under 18knts true that boat was very fast and we could beat the old High Roller and the old Sidewinder.

    Sailed with Walter Hanson on that boat and then on the Dobroth Midnight Tiger. Great guy. Where is that boat now?

  11. A loss to sailing. Jim bought Razzle Dazzle and named it Mokuahi. Did Admirals Cup Trials with him when I worked for Bob Barton. It had Sterns hydrolics with a hydrolic mainsheet fine tune. Back in the day! He was a truely fantastic person.

    Turbo Etchells

    In 1984 one of my customers at horizon sailmakers did the ostar rave in a modified etches. His name was al Fourier and the boat was el torero. He cut the bow off to get it under 30' loa. Did the race in just 30 days. I still have the sailplane for the boat!
