In Topic: creepiest mast moving I've seen in a while...

??  That's a pretty standard set-up for moving utility poles or irrigation sections.


Oh, sure it is...

and probably the pictures don't quite do it justice... it's just a nice wooden spar, we have a steep, steep hill to get out of here, the trailer was low to the ground and everything was attached with ratchet straps- including the hitch... I probably should have gotten some better pictures- trust me, it was pretty creepy in person...

In Topic: Alerion Express 20

Using the calculator here: http://www.image-ina...m/sailcalc.html (which is a cool source of information, btw)

I put in a max length of 22, hull speed max of 5.65, sa/d max of 25.1 and sa/d min of 22.5 and came up with the following list...

Now, I don't have the vested interest that you do, so I didn't bother scanning the list to see just how comparable they are, in fact, to the alerion... But you could tweak as many of the parameters as you would like...

If tht helps...

In Topic: Dumbest 'feature' you've ever dealt with on a boat

Is the inner wheel a brake for the trim tab wheel?


how about this blast from the past?

/c


more of a 'lock'... fixes it to the main wheel so they move simultaneously... but good catch!

Lol... It's hard to get far enough away from 3 boats that size indoors! Tough crowd today! I'll see if I can get a less distorted shot...

It's still pretty cool...
