In Topic: Rolex Big Joke Series

15 September 2014 - 03:58 PM

Got to admit, that without a solid rating rule in place, why would anybody build a custom 50 - 70 foot racing yacht these days?  The ton and 50' IOR boats, and the 70 foot sleds were big boats that brought it....with a lot of amateurs onboard being directed by some pro sailors.  The year of the maxi Worlds at BBS were epic.  But why would anybody pay to have a custom raceboat drawn and built these days.  Why would anybody on the West Coast pay to have a new TP52 drawn and built, knowing that the circuit is 10 time zones away and full of pros. 

 

If BBS went back to a hard waterline length cutoff, you could have a big-boat series, that would not be very big.

So what I really want to know is.....how much does it cost to longboard and fair a J/70?  I think I know one that could really use some "bottom paint" and hence would really need a "bottom job".

How does this summer compare to say 1992?  That was a very active year, too, right?

I say add a drain plug and line it with PlastiDip when the baby is done with it. Instant cool party cooler!
