All,

I just wanted to share some pictures of all the work and modifications i made to "Team Zombie" my Ultra 30. I love reading about and viewing any radical sport boat new or old, so I thought I would give back a bit. I spent a lot of time fixing the boat plus repositioning and changing out blocks, lines, bits, and fittings to make crew work easier. There is always a lot going on on this very physical 30 footer.

On our FB page has a pictorial tour of the boat. Enjoy...

Let me know if you have some radical ideas! :-)

"Non spin" you're kidding, right? Sorry I just cannot picture racing an Ultra 30 in the cruising division. Got a grill on the stern pulpit?

And what is the diff between an Ultra 30 and Ultimate 30?

Ultra 30's were a UK based one-design, Ultimate 30's US based box rule.

Sadly most of the local racing that we do is non spin. We have had some good competitors in a m32, Farr 40, Farr 39.5, summit 35, Farr 11s to race against. Racing with kites would be more fun though.

This little club of Scrivan's in South West CT is going to become the local Sport Boat lair, mark my words.

Good question. In 1999 the Ultra's switched from hiking to 8 man trapping. The ultimates only had 6 guys trapping. Although the Ultra's were newer by design date they were based off the ultimate 30 " frequent flyer".

My guess is because the Ultimates were a box rule and had a lot of room for development, they were faster than the ultras which were one design and tamed down from the Frequent Flyer boat. With that said if you look at alot of the Ultimates some of them looked very archaic and you know there must have been a large speed discrepancy in that fleet across the wind range. I bet some Ultimates were way slower than the ultras. In the end I would say one of he fastest ultimates would prevail against the Ultras.

Now I know Team Zombie our ultra 30 has had a lot of love over the years and is faster than the original Ultras. Seldom carbon mast, boom, pole, huge fat head main, newer/lighter racks, rod rigging, redesigned systems and blocks, all make for some nice speed bumps over the original design. We do have a bulb on the bottom of the keel adding about 600-700 lbs more than just the heavy keel fin alone.

Some things remain a mystery...
