    Hi Mr. Perry and faithful dog, "Depth of the third reef was the same as the depth of the 2nd reef. " would make sense if had a mizzen, I know it doesn't, reread last post of mine if desired. three reefs at proper heights... 3rd would be up way up there....makes it easier on crew rather than setting trysail. above third reef sail would hopefully be reinforced for high winds. If fancy boom does not allow it..........got the wrong boom grasshopper

    i think i read someone had to convince R. Perry that a 43' boat that will probably be sailing off shore at times, should have 3 reefs in mainsail....... wow. guess Mr. Swain right about very little cruising experience. last time I checked sail plan, wasn't a mizzen there for "jib and jigger"

    3Di sail needs a recut?

    "You can't tell anything about the sail shape from a picture taken from off the boat!" wrong.

    Client sounds smart. Nothing wrong with "high" Clewed headsails. Better reaching performance. I think some disagree.

    Did the yacht have a life raft on board? Or did capt N crew drink the Kool Aid and rely on the "super boat" MARKETING? Some thing like "should the unthinkable happen she is unsinkable with water tight bulk heads and flotation from core."

    random thoughts while grazin...north of 138 if I marry rich, does a rasta come with boat? would help in de islands, mann. But were to put him, just 2 state rooms? mainsail: how many reefs? just two?? can these floating party platforms set a trysail? Separate track for em? were they actually using a storm jib as described in accts, or a reef in standard head sail if supplied per Gunboat website..."to reduce windage" ? OK! i'm thinkin the big cat got a hull airborne and pants were soiled, then rig went bye bye watched youtube videos of same yacht, looks great in 20-30 astern.... above that I'd want my ass in a well found monohull. Not a floating tennis court with lots of glass. And 20 feet or more to fall cross the big party room should she flip. Don't think they may flip..... chk with Elvis

North Bay boaters first heard of Hot Rod Lane's plans to sail to Hawaii shortly after he and his son, Michael Johnson, brought their partially completed amas to the San Rafael build site in 2011. © 2015 Andy For years, James 'Hot Rod' Lane had dreamed of sailing to Hawaii on his homebuilt boat, then living the good life afloat in some friendly anchorage. That dream ended today, as Lane and his crew were air-evacuated from the 65-ft Flyin' Hawaiian catamaran 120 miles west of Monterey, and the huge, unconventional craft was left to drift. According to the Coast Guard, she had been taking on water; sea conditions at the time have yet to be clarified. Activation of a crewperson's personal locator device this morning after 8 a.m. triggered a Search and Rescue (SAR) response that included flyovers by a Coast Guard C-17 and a C-130 aircraft, the diversion of a large tanker to the scene, and activation of three CG helicopters — one from San Francisco and two out of L.A. After the sailors were unable to transfer to the tanker, all five crew were reportedly hoisted to safety within the waiting helicopters and flown to the mainland. None suffered injuries. Although the trip was a failure, we hope Lane can take some comfort in knowing that he at least got his self-designed creation out into the open ocean. Since the cat's launch in May 2013 at San Rafael's Loch Lomond Marina, he'd had numerous problems maneuvering her, and keeping her moored without dragging. If you happen to spot this vessel offshore, please alert the Coast Guard to its whereabouts. - latitude / andy
