ok, qualifiers: it was perfect FT10 weather; we got a lucky and persistent shift on the first upwind; result was fast tiger = and yes, all of our good friends and competitors can post a similar night when they kicked our butt...


Crew was 3 adults and 2 12 year olds. Key competitors were 2 J109s, SC37, and a J111.




Have to enjoy things when you can...Fall is here.

unfortunately there has been a lot of disinformation about the Tiger 10, those that sail them know the real story, as the video shows it can hold its' own, even short handed with family crew, while in the presence of formitable well crewed designs.

Our racer cruiser becomes the mother ship at anchor, while the Tiger becomes the boat of choice to sail, even the grand kids prefer to sail on the Tiger.

Well done, Charlie.

I enjoy that you guys with a team that has a minimum of crew and kids onboard was able to beat a particular J/111 with 8 people including multiple professionals onboard. Oh and your boat cost 1/4 of what the 111 did.

Very bitter Wes! If you trash all the boats you got kicked off you are going to be a very busy guy! :)


Why is no one surprised; lol.

Instead of apologizing it appears that Left Hook, in a chickenshit move, deleted all his posts on this thread.

"Poor Form, LH"; you can say that again.

Edited @ 3:43 PM
P.S. Instead of lurking, come out of the closet and face the music, LH.

I deleted my posts because nothing I said was meant as a personal slight to the good people on that black boat even though they were taken that way. If I could take them back I would do so but I can't so I did the next best thing. I'm not discussing this topic in public any further.

No, your words were taken exactly for what you posted; that you didn't care whether you got tossed from the black J/111 because you didn't like racing with them and was ready to walk anyway.

The honorable thing to do would have been not to delete your posts but to face the music for its content and apologize. But that would have taken guts.

Maybe you'll understand if and when you grow up.

That's strangley familiar to this quote, also in reference to that same black J/111:

If you want to hear why we dropped out you'll have to talk to me in private, I don't want to discuss those things publicly


You have a lot to learn, grasshopper. Word travels fast on LIS.

From the owner of the SC37 that the FT10 beat over the line (wow that's hard to type!), congratulations to TigerinCT on a nice race. You had that boat in the groove. Well done!

We're East Coast Swamp Yankees. Sweating is uncivilized. But being serenaded by the piano on the RC boat, that's just proper yachting!

Good move Bob. Curious how a simple vid. on one of your successes turns into a sandy vag moment.

Last night was beautiful, our race was a touch distracted...
- the rabbit didn't really do a rabbit start as planned
- we had 4 kids and 3 adults
- the piano guy didn't show up
- I was really playing with the new sails and trying to figure the boat out, and overstood by like 0.5 miles on the first beat.

All that said, the new NP technora jib and main are gorgeous. I'll post some pics later as I gratuitously endorse Bob Pattison.

As I was one of the proponents for an FT10 with a tall cabin top that would allow for standing room in a narrow interior filled with the keel box and sink counter, I hope that you are as sincere in your reply as I was sarcastic in my reply to moondance44.

In fact the height of the FT10 cabin top is of the same proportion as the custom built Goetz boat shown below.

um, no i'm not....in fact I don't give two shits if he does or doesn't own a boat...for about the billionth time, whether you currently own a boat or not doesn't make you any more or less qualified to opine on one design or another.

Where did I claim that Matt B does not own a boat and/or that he does not have the right to express his opinion on the subject of beauty?

You know that old saying about opinions being like .........; everyone has one.

As for "getting you panties in such a bunch every time somebody doesn't agree with what you say" it appears that you are the one who needs to take a chill pill.
