Wow, I know this kind of thing shouldn't be shocking to me, but it is.  I cannot believe someone would do this.  Before we crucify the guy though, he doesn't seem so bad in real life:

Maybe his crew optimized the boat for him...

 

As as aside SE San Diego makes Fresno look like paradise.

Just curious, and not suggesting it to be the case, but from this serious of photos do the multihull experts here think it would have pitchpoled had it not collapsed?  


In Topic: Full power on a 105

I think MidPack answered "overpowered" versus "fully powered up".  You make adjustment to adjust power vs point, etc, so it's difficult to answer your question.  I'm not sure why you are asking, but you might get a better answer by reading some of the tuning guides - google J/105 Tuning guides.  If you just want a number for argument's sake, I'll say 12kts.

I've seen photos of superyachts being refueled by a convoy of trucks, but that doesn't seem to be the case here.  Here's some more info on A's trip to the Sound.

Thanks for posting that pic.  A friend was visiting Port Ludlow (as a guest on 53' stinkpot) during your Rendezvous and mentioned how friend and welcoming your group was.  She and her husband were given several tours, but missed out on the Francis Lee.  I sent her the pic and she quickly pointed on the boat she was on.  They discovered they were "water people" last week and are anxious to go sailing with me soon.
