  1. I gotta go with a Santa Cruz 52. West coast classic with the ability to go daysailing with friends, beer and racing with ease, offshore to Hawaii in a competitive field, and longer range cruising whenever you want. Max size to be handled by a couple, but room for plenty when those times happen.
  2. Once Gavin gets his slippery mits on a boat, it'll never measure in to class spec!
  3. What about 2 short lateen rigs on the center hull? Not sure you want any rigging going out to amas that are moving about... Some sort of Polynesian rig is your best bet
  4. Why not sleeve the 6m alum tubes you have available to make a 12 or 18m long mast(s)?
  5. Solid base of sunbum. Long hair. Constant hat (ideally wide brimmed when logical. Actually have a port authority one that is my favorite...) Hate long sleeves, so regular re apply on limbs and face. Edit to add, don't forget good chapstick with sun protection. I am partial to banana boat.
  6. Yeah, my dad has a 30' uldb in Dana point. It is gonna have to go. They are retired and can't afford the increase. It's gonna crush him to sell it...
  7. If she holds together, I am going with Vanderspek on Aloha
  8. It rains from everywhere... That said, I would take it over the Farr 400 every time. It sails more like a big Melges 32 than a small TP-52 in my experience
  9. add mask to your kit for when you foul a pot and need to clear the prop have fun!
  10. It is not at all watertight. It is basically like camping in the rain. This boat has been modified a little. Sea hood added was a huge upgrade. Keel fin was made slightly longer in chord for better upwind performance in a mixed fleet where pointing was a little off in lighter airs. Offshore main is a tiny bit smaller for a rating credit under ORR.
  11. I've done some offshore sailing on a Soto 40... https://www.facebook.com/thijssen/videos/10223218551925175/ https://www.facebook.com/thijssen/videos/10223218184515990 Bring 2 sets of foulies and prepare to be wet anyways. That said, the boat is fun as hell in 20knts and big waves downwind!
  12. Ignore the water intrusion issue. It's the simple in mast furling shit show that will fuck you at some point...
  13. It's my understanding the DIOs report names more than one person. That's why the WS decision from Dec names "Brady and others"
  14. Well, if an anonymous person on SA is sure there was no cheating then that's good enough for me! Or you can look at facts and read the independent investigators report if world sailing ever releases it so you can draw your own conclusions.
  15. Kinda doubt that if the DIO Report was public or at least allowed as evidence... Why won't World Sailing release at least the summary? Because Gavin and Karl are threatening a lawsuit on WS if they make the report public. What's the old saying, "If you are not guilty than why hide the facts?" It is a mockery of our sport that people can cheat and then use threats to keep from getting the light shown on them.
  16. It's an honest days work normally, but pretty lucrative if you have a flexible tape I reckon!
  17. ACFrOgAk2lhMWtz62QR6sBbr91yvD-2P3q94eCoOdVBHnyzYbmQQGbj2EeCnroME47cuZQVEdRwz-HMf-YDUy5n1YuWFSFbt1AiIzENmwudvy4QIA818ySZ-8Xq9sHs3j6VJk1z3pmziteIVNFVY.pdf
  18. Doesn't mean he wasn't right...
  19. What happened to the thread on Gavin facing a ban? Did the new Forum eat it? Something more nefarious? Gavin hired Russian Bots to attack the SA Servers? Now a new story on the FP (wherever that is). Seems like the full story has yet to be written. I for one wanna see the DIO report. david.graham@sailing.org should release it
  20. Don't skip this stop. One of my favorite spots and ideal for a boat like the s2. Another hidden gem on the path less traveled is San benito outside cedros. Super remote, but kinda magic. Pretty far offshore for your boat, but if the weather dictates, it's good to have options
  21. Heard on ch16 they had steering system issues.
