      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Po Boy 20?

Recommended Posts

The Holder 20. I fink its freaky and I like it a lot. Can't find one though. What else is out there that is trailerable, fast, has a cabin, looks cool, and can be had for under $4K? Nobody better say, "Ozark whitetrash chick" I'm serious.

OK - won't say "Ozark whitetrash chick" - but - I'll give you the standard greeting, said with a smile :)

 

 

Fuck off and show us your tits….

I'm not sure about Mitch guys... Does he really want to see my stuff?

 

In the meantime, maybe someone can recommend a boat similar to a Holder 20, cheap and fast, like the girls Mitch likes.

Nothing else in that price range; maybe the MX-20 but there weren't many of those made. All the ~20ft-ish boats are much much slower.

 

A possibility if you want to do some experimenting: get a Highlander. They are quick (faster than the Holder 20) and very strongly built. I happen to like their looks too but they are certainly not modern or sleek.

Not quite as fast, but look at the Santana 20, also sometimes called the Tuna 20. Good class support, some one design fleets across the country. Fun little boat with as much room as the Holder 20, the biggest problem is the full keel but once you get used to it it isn't a big deal.

 

contact me at santana616tdg@gmail.com if you want some more info. They can be had for as little as 1500 or as much as 6K depending on what your goals are with it.

Was the Holder used for the U20 mold? With some mods. Might be wrong.

No, that was the hotfoot 20

 

Hot foot was the idea for the U20. Jim added more shape to the bow knuckle - changed the back end a little and reworked the interior and cabin top. The keel and rudder were all redesigned also.

I like the the Holder 20 great lake boat. However you need to keep the cabin closed up when conditions get a little windy given spinnaker up wipeouts are well known for sinking them. Positive flotation keeps em off the bottom but I've seen a few that had to be recovered off the bottom. Super fun boat in light air moves really well.

 

Santana 20's are tough boats and also have really good fleets in many cases.

Gonna check out the Santana 20. A little slower than what I'd like probably, but a pretty popular boat in that size and price range.

you would be suprised how quick a tuna can be in less than 12 and flat water!

You Want Freaky??

 

There's a Lindenberg 22 somewhere in Oklahoma thats up for sale. (According to L22 Yahoo Groups)

1"-1 1/2" feet longer than anything mentioned above, but you'll get around the bouys a whole lot faster. (196-198 PHRF)

It's easily trailerable (you can actually beach it), has a very large cabin for a 22', looks way cool (even freaky, depending on your taste in trailerable 30+ year old sail boats), fast and can definately be had for less than $4K.

 

I inquired about this boat....it's in OK, I'm in FL.

I got back to your email, it is cool that you are looking at the Santana 20. We have a great class association with lots of great people involved with the boat.

 

Fun little boats taht don't break the bank to campaign.

My hometown is the S20's hometown, and I'll vouch for it. At current prices for boats, sails, etc., they're cheaper to race than a lot of dinghies.

 

Downside is the keel doesn't retract like the H20's, which makes for a tall trailer, a bigger vehicle to pull it, and a deep ramp or a crane to launch it. SoCal YCs have cranes so it wasn't an issue there.

AK,

Tunas are fun, been racing them OD for the last 14 yrs, but look at your class breaks. 222 is easy to sail to in flat stuff, but if everyone arround rates 170 you are gonna get waterlined to death. Fun boat, great people, but if I was in bigger h20 than in CO I would defenetly go for something a bit bigger. Obviously if there is a OD fleet go for it, but PHRF not so much.

 

Edit;

Can't beat them for bang for the buck though.

 

Come join the fun.........

Looks like the Santana 20 and the Holder 20 are top of the list. Waiting to hear back from a couple of guys about S20's. Anyone got an original condition H20 taking up space in your garage?

Might try an Impulse 21 too.

Err... I he wants a cabin and IIRC the Impulse doesn't have one.

 

The Impulse has about the same amount of cabin as the Tuna and the Holder. That is, hardly any at all. My Impulse has the inboard shrouds which makes the cabin almost impossible, but it's still room for a cooler and some jackets at least. Fun boat too.

Second the notion that the Impulse 21 is ONLY a daysailer. I've had one for 5 years, and enjoy it greatly for evening racing and instruction - it sails and responds very well to adjustment - but I've only crawled below decks perhaps a half-dozen times - it's NOT a dual purpose design at all.

 

Have a Holder 20 in a nearby marina, sure wish he'd sail it more often, I'd love to see how the two compare - I'd bet I'm faster uphill, slower down.
