  1. We have about six Aeros at LCYC in Vermont, and we will be hosting an event this summer. https://lcyc.info/events/rs-aero-vermont-state-championship Here is the current NA schedule: https://www.rsaerosailing.org/index.asp?p=events&rg=North America
  2. If you can’t find an Ascent, you could consider a 3.6R Tribeca, a 3.6R Outback, or a 3.6R Legacy.
  3. @velocitek, what is the recommended lashing pattern? I can't wait to use this in May!
  4. I approve the choice of the Vermonter. I like it with Granny Smith slices, or any other tart varieties.
  5. There are many brands entering this sector, but Velocitek has a proven track record of reliability and endurance. ProStart with magnetic compass is sweet.
  6. I only got to sail once this summer, and not even on my own boat. I brought my Viper 640 to the club in May, and never even unzipped the cover. I brought her back to the barn in September. We did one race on @ZeroTheHero's Seascape 24, and then there was a positive test at the sailing center where he works. Our club started a dinghy racing night for the first time in years, and got a bunch of Lasers and Aeros out every Thursday. I got jealous watching and occasionally filming from shore, and bought a used Aero last month. Apparently, there are now five, so I helped build a fleet without s
  7. Order placed. I love the Velocitek gear. Thanks. I am working on getting a Nautalytics Aero-bracket re-drilled for a a Shift. I would rather just buy a unit, if possible. Cheers
  8. Will this unit ever gift lift/header numbers or indicators? It seems like the only thing from the Shift that I would be missing. Perhaps let us toggle between heel and shift indicators, or some other way. Then I can just have the new ProStart on my Viper 640, and leave my Shift with my RS Aero. BTW, I did confirm that the Shift is class legal with the RS Aero with all features. Thanks
  9. Maybe he would part them out. The salvage or insurance company only wanted the hull, apparently.
  10. I heard that he found a really nice used boat, and I would guess that the mast, keel, and rudder are in his garage for backup.
  11. I know of this boat. It was raced for a bit, and then the engineer who owned it stopped racing it as much and started developing electronic control systems for different parts of the boat. It usually lived in his garage over the winter, and on a hydro hoist in the summer. He took good care of it. I found out that it was in a port-starboard collision while just out sailing this summer! Insurance totaled it and only cared about the hull, so previous owner likely now has any spare parts as backups for his replacement boat.
  12. Every PHRF region is different. Many complaints can be alleviated with thoughtful class divisions.
  13. I have missed our family's C&C 99 since it was sold a few years ago. I haven't been cruising since, which is part of why I was thinking about trailers!
