that's hot. Is that the stock rig with new spreaders? Always thought the SR would go nice with traps...

Classic. 147, oddly enough. 

I'd like to square off with that thing in my Holder 20X! Shame we're on opposite coasts.

Having owned both boats, Holder 20 #9, and now SR 21 Max turboed #121, I can tell you now matter how "turboed" the Holder 20 is, it won't touch a turboed SR 21.  The SR consistently hits 7 knots up wind and just Monday night, hit 13+ knots off the wind with no spinnaker (too much wind for the chute).  The holder 20 hull simply doesn't plane as freely as the SR's hull.

H20 #9 was a stock beater I presume you bought from Fred Miller then sold to Scott Walsh? You wouldn't know about the planing ability with the stock small spin. 

I'm a big fan of Hendo's boats and the SR 27 I sailed at KWRW is still one of my fav's.

It would be fun to line test with the two boats because old boats that have been updated are cool.

You presume incorrectly.  We had #9 back in the mid 80's, and sailed it in enough wind with the spinnaker up to turtle it in the Snake River in February.  Brrrrrr.  After about 8 hours of work we were able recover the boat with the help of many people in dry suits, and a big ass water pump.  Even in the 30-40 mph gusts, I don't remember it really taking off on a screaming plane.  But, you're right, it would be awesome to get the two boats on the line together.  We're up in North Central Washington; meet at the Ed's favorite yacht club in Huntington? :)

BTW, what's it rate? ;)

HSR is a little too soon to make plans to do, at this point. I'd certainly entertain it for next year. Boat rates 168, which is 6 secs faster than a J24 at 174. Up there, with the ridiculous PHRF-NW system it should correlate to 180 (with the J24 at 186). If you have the Tahoe boat, which rated 171 there we are pretty close. 

What PHRF fleets are you 'ripping up'? Message me, we'll take it offline.
