Brady was a traitor to the Republic, violated his sworn oath to protect the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. May he rot in Hell with his buddy Gen. Benedict Arnold, GWB, O'Bombya, etc.

Ugly fast works on monoslugs. Sailboards, Iceboats & multi's not so much. It has to do with the camber of the sail. Only Solid wingsails like the Americans cup can be made deep or flat and smooth.

Can someone elaborate on the keel & rudder 'fix' for the Santana 35? Do you just mean fairing, or was there a problem?

We had one here (Chesapeake) in the early 80's - sail #43076 - I think it had an orange & yellow stripe on the hull too...but I can't remember for sure.

The top boats in San Fran would run aground and get the insurance company to fix the sump area and stiffen it up. The rudders had a tendency to fold at the rudder post when rounding up or down - can't remember what was done for that but don't think it involved buying another rudder from Schock.

On Frac. rigs, Upper mainsail leech twist is fast, Get your proper helm angle by raking the mast for the conditions. not by sheeting the main leech tight. Lean hard on the jib luff. keep it filled and driving. Let your mast rake and the foils give you the lift.
