    It depends what you call light. My Axopar28AC is listed at 5,000 lbs. with 350 Merc Verado, dry. It burns 45 ltrs/hour at 4200 rpm. That is a cruise speed of 25/28 kts depending on conditions. That’s not quite as good as that Alaskan Skiff but still pretty good. I’m guessing that if you wanted a much lighter boat you would have to go custom build.

    Broken Marstrom mast for free

    Lot’s of broken Marstrom carbon rigs out there now. Where were they when I needed one? Depending on where they are broken they can be easy to fix. I’m sailing mine now with the splice at my spreaders an it’s fine. Would have loved a Marstrom though.

    Interesting to see that MOST folks think the transition from sailing to power should be a slow displacement Trawler type boat. OK fine. Me? I went for an Axopar 28. Cruise at 28/30 kts. Still have my sailboat, it’s fast too.

  7. Hey I remember that day. Just north of Seymour Narrows R2AK 2015. Just before you turned around. Nasty day!

    F-9RX wood core questions

    Really enjoyed this story. Brought me back to my Vic Maui race on Redshift. The F31s really are fantastic boats.

    New Corsair 880

    OK Maybe I spoke too soon. After watching the longer 10 min vid I can see the boat looks much better. Maybe she has a tad too much dihedral. That can be a good thing in light air, not so good in heavy air. Looking forward to seeing more.

    New Corsair 880

    I was a little surprised when I watched the video to see how pressed the leeward float is. I noticed that none of the crew were hiking on the windward float. To my eye the boat “looks” heavy and the floats, although seem to have a nice shape, “ appear” to lack buoyancy . I don’t think this boat will by flying the main hull. Just casual observations from watching one vid.

    AC45F Lux for sale

    I haven’t heard anyone say they want to do the R2AK in an AC45. Am I missing something?

    Personally I really like Bob’s big ass super efficient power boat. But for me, I have an F85SR trimaran and an Axopar28AC. Both fast and efficient. Some days ( today) I use them both. Don’t know how to post photos. Sorry.
