  1. Should be a fun one Sat looks light, hopefully we can get out of the bay
  2. Need a part for the Fareast 28R and they never returned calls. Website appears to be down and phones have robo voice straight to voicemail. Anyone have the scoop? They fucked up the install on our spin pole and now I have to unfuck it. Anyone know where else to get parts, looking for the Delrin insert for the end of the spin pole launch tube.
  3. 70k is cheap for a fly in, fly out program. I thought it was pretty cool, had it on in the garage while working on the Jeep. Well done
  4. Don't know any other mid sized Keelboat with a crew of 7-8 that can pull 23 boats in the US right now. Kinda lame to throw shit before it even goes down. I'd be there if these boats didn't have stupid weight limits...
  5. They'll end up in the great lakes. more fun to be had
  6. BAhahaha. Come on up and sail a Tuesday with us on the Fareast! Nobody even bats an eye when we use a shotgun cannon for the finish. Just let me know so I can save you a spot to park inside the fence. And don't worry, the marina manager has a big boxer who chases all the rats away from the yard (I'm not joking, he does a great job!). Catches a few every day.

  8. Seems like a lot of people I know from Newport, RI think they're better than everyone else because they are from Newport. Sailing doesn't Start getting warm there until May and it's generally cold in early October. Annapolis gets a longer season but it's all inshore sailing with it's challenges but usually breeze fills in and a decent day is had. Also, Annapolis people are cliquey and it's a small town where everyone's in ya business. Hampton Roads has great sailing and you can be on the water every night of the week, There's usually good breeze, good racing and good programs.
  9. 3AM on a Cal 39 surfing waves on the delivery home, watching the speedo creep up into the teens, it was like riding a roller coaster. Went down below to make some coffee and was fallowed by a wall of water down the companionway. Heard the owner laughing a big deep belly laugh and looked up to him standing at the helm looking like a drowned rat with water up to his knees and the lazarette in the cockpit. Asked him if he was good, and he replied "I've been hearing voices anyway and then something tapped me on the shoulder, and then I was all wet, yep, i'm good, but I'm all wet." Doing 18
  10. The engineer in me wants to know more about cyclic load fatigue indicators on threaded rod. Esplain please
  11. My Buddy and his dad had one. They had a blast with it. He used to singlehand it with a kite and whip ass. Would bungee cord the tiller straight DDW, walk forward on the leeward side, break the pole, walk to the windward side, heal the boat, kite and main would gybe, make the pole and run back to tiller. A LOT of fun time on that little thing.
  12. Bring $100 cash and bribe the guy at the border. you'll get right in.
  13. We always call the bow "Reality" and the cockpit "Fantasy land" To each their own. Go the Merlin
  14. seems like you could put together a water ballast setup with some tanks under the gunnels to get some righting moment back.
  15. Install a little diesel. You'll appreciate being able to push that button and have a prop all the way in the water in any sort of sea state. If it gets rough the outboard just pops out and cavitates. My buddies are the Catalina 27 Intergalactic Champions. Winning that shit took staying power, perseverance and a half keg of Heineken down below on ice.
