    Evelyn 32 - Bristol, RI

    I don't recognise it, perhaps someone from up in those parts might. Looks like a significant bulkhead upgrade (G10?). Why anyone would include a shot of that nasty 1.5 oz is a mystery. Catalina smile of the forward section of the keel is about par for the course, e.g., nuthin' unusual for a 32-2. Damage to starboard bow looks minor and compared to most Evelyn repairs, it's not a big job. Not sure how compromised the hull/deck joint is. If you know these boats, the light layup is both a curse and a blessing. Curse in that injuries usually don't just buff out, but blessing in that repairs can be relatively easy. Not sure how SloopJon knows how bad the hull/deck issue is, maybe I missed a shot in the photo collection. Beam of Destiny looks a little under-spec'ed too Again, it's all relative. This could be a fun club-race boat for a song. Key thing with the 32-2 is having ample time, energy or cash to keep the broken bits fixed.
  2. Oops, bad math....meant 80 years, above ^ Math is hard!
  3. well played, Mr. Sparrow, well played. As an aside, I was in Paris last summer, 75 years to the day that the Battle of Paris commenced and ran, briefly....there were Hugo Boss posters on a LOT of the street kiosks. As they say, you cannot make this yit up. Ya just can't.

    If YOU didn't like it, then that's a ringing endorsement for doing it! (oh and see ya tomorrow)

    ORC vs PHRF, how do they compare?

    The messenger, please do not shoot him.

    HOT! HOT! HOT! (Peppers, that is)

    Wow. Thanks for the heads-up, desprit. Gonna operate on this bad boy with nitrile gloves, a scalpel and hemo clamp in a fume hood. Just want the seeds, but I'm tempted to put a slice on a burger or pizza slice.

    NASS Race to Oxford MD 9/7/19

    So untrue. You sure as sh*t didn't at Block in....whatever year that was....2011? 2009? I forgets.

    It was, John, but it would have been more fun with Hustler there.

    Bingo. Well stated and soooo true.

    NASS Race to Oxford MD 9/7/19

    Those starting lines...gosh. I mean, golly gosh. Oh well. We had a great race against the Express 30, swapping places back and forth. Once again (like on Hornet last year with AYC debacle) we had certain victory snatched away. It's getting to be a fad. Such is life.

    Goddammit...can't believe I'm missing this again. Have fun, Capt DW and don't forget about that halyard tension thing.

    Modified Columbia 30 info?

    To ensure the fit, I cut a pattern out of delrin and made damn sure the thing slid up and down smoothly. After all that, though, I'm building a new bulbless keel with internal ballast. Easy enough to configure on a 5.5 meter sporty, probably not recommended for a 30 :-)

    Modified Columbia 30 info?

    I feel your personal pain. Although mine, weighing a fraction of yours, was a lot less hassle. Still a PITA though. And yeah, the fit going back in is a concern....don't ask me how I know :-)

    ORC For Dummies

    My sincere apologies for the thread hijack. Best of luck trying to game optimize the boat for the system. Long live IOR, MORC, IMS, etc etc
