    Spinnakers - How big is too big?

    Get it cut. No big deal

    That’s actually a different boat, her predecessor.

    Yeah she has been mentioned a couple of times here over the years. It will be cool to see her get fixed up and back racing again.

    Bingo! Finally. I’m amazed it took this long.

    Found the Worst Boat Ever?

    Great find! Truly a study in an absence of craftsmanship.

    Just realizing now I was actually off on the size. Boat is 48’, not over 50. I had a brain fart.

    Well the car was ahead of its time, and certainly showed the versatility of both men. Starling Burgess did all kinds of cool shit.

    It’s not Tenacious, but very close as far as a lot of the details. Some Barients... some locally made winches.

    No, cold molded, and despite the neglected condition still quite solid.

    Starling Burgess worked with Bucky Fuller on that car.

    It had some kind of grinder like system on the primaries that was removed because it was apparently impossible to use. I’m not clear on how that worked, but the remains of the underdeck transmission was something that we loaded onto the boat before leaving.

    Ok buddy. You have zero context about how it went down and what we had to do to get it moved in the time frame we did. The guy was lucky he found someone able to get that thing out of moth balls and down to Newport in time to make shipment. The amount of work I had to do in the mean time was way beyond what was originally agreed to... so I have zero fucks to give on all that.

    There were a whole bunch of Genoa tracks. A little hard to see under the lines.
