    No, not really. Just felt like stating the obvious.

    Surveyor in Hampton, VA area

    Ron is retired. Bay Harbor has been sold and is under new ownership. He is still doing a little though to help out. Lloyd would definitely be the surveyor to use.

    It's not a question of work, it's a question of money.

    Promises was built slightly higher grade than As Larks aka Fitikoko. I don't think Fiti had the carbon in her for one thing. But overall very similar boats. Yeah, we built a Carkeek 40 last year, just finished the Miami - Eleuthera race last week with it. Fantastic race, hope more people take a crack at it next year. Dunno. I'm sure Leroi can chime in though.

    It was completely refurbished by Larry Kumins, who bought it from SMSA. @voodoochile is the current owner.

    It's just the nature of the beast. There's no money to maintain these kinds of boats in a college program. When St Mary's got done with Prelude, one of our previous donations, it was basically uninhabitable. Promises, the Tripp 38, too. You just have to be ok with the college kids getting some joy and experience out of it.

    Good to hear. It was basically all gone, and the bottom had some gnarly ass brushed on power boat anti fouling on the bottom. She is a very unique and cool boat, happy it's been brought back up to standard.

    Long time no see man. As noted she went off to the PNW. I saw it at Jabin's just before it left, needed substantial work.

    Dirt contractor. Sailed the Shack boat for 3 years, once with Hobie Jr, and I think Bill Newton did a couple with him. '79, '80 and '81 I think. Precisely.

    Worrell 1000

    Chris Worrell was my next door neighbor, my step father did three in a row. I've seen it first hand. I'm not bagging on it at all, so don't misunderstand, wish everyone the best and will be cheering them on. Just pining for the old days. And I would probably get off the couch if they went straight through again, even though I'm way too old to even contemplate.

    I know you have to do your job and say that, but they don't matter now for this race. Get a few guys with friends that drive the vans, go to Lauderdale, and take off. See who gets here first. That's how it was.

    My question is when are you guys gonna run it straight through from Ft Lauderdale to Virginia Beach like the old days and get rid of this overnight stop stuff.

    1st week of April. Was about 105 I think? Pretty turrible. One of the guys almost had a heat stroke, I was legit worried lol.

    Yes, they do the best job I've seen so far. And you're right, as I mentioned it's not perfect, but a step in the right direction. They happen to make a lot of merino tops too, which sounds up your alley. I like their merino for spring, but way too hot for summer for me. Their Climbers jersey is pretty cool wearing though. Best hot weather I have found is Assos Equipe RS in white. That's what I wore riding through the desert in Dubai.

    No, I'm not saying that at all. With regards to sailing gear there is a wide range of needs as I listed. What you wear buoy racing is different than offshore sailing is different than dingy sailing. They all take different specific kit. My response to him was a completely different conversation about cycling gear. Though I wear my Assos 1/3 base layer under a Patagonia capilene long sleeve for super hot conditions buoy racing, works phenomenally.
