Someone else mentioned he may qualify for $220 a month in food stamps. 

 

Surely he could get a slip in a cheap marina and have a few bux left over from ss for propane to cook up $220 a month in oats and instant spuds


In Topic: Used Farr 40 mast

farr 30 rig in a dash 34... no one thought it would work, but wow it was awesome.

 

j 109 rig in an olson 34... whoda thunk it?

That same Farr 30 rig did a short stint in a Hobie 33 before it went into the Dash

 

that it did. seemed to work ok there.

 

same guy did some neat forestay mods to a pair of schock 40s too. rigs still standing.

 

and he's not an engineer. pretty clever, pretty knowledgeable. 

 

 

IIRC, years ago there was an Farr 30 rig  on a local Ross 930 as well as that Dash.  Maybe only Kiwi designed rigs work on Kiwi designed boats?

 

Same guy as above planted an M243 carbon rig on a 70's era wooden Tuulos 27

 

I think JR would stick a Farr 30 rig in just about any 30ish footer out there (I don't know where he keeps coming up with these, but he seems to always have 1 or 2 of these rigs kicking around)

 

BTW, I'm not familiar with the forestay mods he did to the Schock 40's.  Care to fill me in? .I think he also managed to get rid of the compression post on the HF27, replaced with a carbon structure, but no one has been able to explain to me exactly what that was.

 

Jr put another adjustable masthead headstay outside the existing headstay. Allowed it to carry much larger headies as it was essentially turbo'd. If i remember right he had an eye off a tack on the bow to a purchase for tension. Both his and the red boat had the mod.
