  1. called 'incompetence" wrinkles
  2. Why does a cruiser need a traveller? Onliest time is when you are racing in under 12 K. upwind. Most production sailboats have a wider sheeting angle, and don't need to pull the main away from the jib Take it off. Cleaner deck, fewer stubbed toes, less crap on the deck. I cannot see why everyone believes they need one.
  3. And, ( this is not USA, but Sagami bay, Japan, had the most condoms, plastic, boxes and shit than most place I've sailed.
  4. whats wrong with point conception? Just cause the breeze comes on sometimes?
  5. con. You would need a piece of sheet metal to stand with the positive leach shown in their drawings. The picture of the boat shown, shows a slightly hollow leach, (although very little). if built in something like CZ or firmer stuff, it would need battens, or an amsteel leach cord to get to their drawings. and battens are not an option. That being said, if you are a frac, and sprit boat, a masthead genoa is a powerful weapon for these conditions.
  6. turning a swan 65 upside down (170 degrees) 1385 miles southwest of perth. You do the math! 17 broken masts. Dont sail with me!! Helping design my boat with Tom Wylie, then cruising deep south Mexico for a year. Those are near the top!
  7. I always put them in the hot tub next to the houseboat in Seattle for as long as it took for it to unroll nicely. Or move to San Diego!!!
  8. We lived at 2019-B from 77 to 95. My sail loft was in Mariners sq, a short summer Laser sail to work. On the rare 90 degree days, we hung a sign on the door saying "gone swimming" over the lunch time. Customers knew this and never came around on hot hot days.
  9. Well, I did spend some time at CYC. Was married there! Lived on my houseboat on Fairview for 20 years. Loved it in Seattle.
  10. Wow, I'm surprised this is still going! I've been showing to friends lately
  11. I don't know if Easom did it, but I don't think Bill opened the transom. Scott being a rugger, could have done the mast mod, pole and running rigging.. We did all the work on ours, including repairing the mast!
  12. No Longy, It's the boat that I turbo'd in 2004 or so. Easom must have done Bill's boat, but they went too far.
  13. We have hull #0. Hobies personal boat. Raced it to enesnada Friday. Torbod up to the max.
