  1. and I can confirm that it is 2.36. That is what I have on my 3 GMD and have seen them on lots of other 20ish hp yanmars.
  2. So sad. Condolences to all all who knew him.
  3. After sailing in both locations and living in San Diego for 7 months a few years ago, I would pick Annapolis.
  4. that cat needs to relax and just have a friendly discussion with the offending rc... This is weeknight racing, bruh. Nothing is fucked, here, man.
  5. ^ +1. Getting out is better then making everything perfect. Looks like a great day to be on the water.
  6. going thru it would be faster. I did see someone do that last weekend. He had a better wheel for it. I had not even thought of that as an option till I watched duck thru it. Great way to adapt.
  7. I cruise my boat (j35) without a roller. I only anchor out about 4-7 days a year so this is not that big of deal. I use a SS carabiner clipped to my bow to run the rode thru. When I hit the chain, I unclip the last of the nylon and just lift the rest of it out setting it down on the deck gently. This has worked well for me. Being slow and methodical thru the process helps a great deal. I also have a raceyish anchor/rode, FX16 and only 17.5ft of chain so no heavy stuff.
  8. my rudder just gently rubs into the hull. The top of the rudder is rounded enough and the point of contact is flat enough that it barely even leaves a mark in the bottom paint where it makes contact and builds resistance and just stops the rudder. The bottom paint that it does make contact is also above the normal waterline. I will be interested in seeing the photo. I should note that I am not in the habit of jamming my rudder into the hull, just the couple of times that it has happened over the last 9 years, it does not damage anything.
  9. The stops on my boat is where the aft top end of the rudder makes contact with the hull on each side. The rudder swings about 45 degs Port/Stbd from being dead fwd and aft. Seems to work just fine like that even when the tiller got out of hand backing down once or twice and slammed someone around. I would not mind seeing some pictures of the stops as it sound interesting.
  10. I get it now. When I read the title, i thought it was something to do with my ex....
  11. ^ Santa has been asked for our boat...
  12. I am interested in a 150+ mile race and not in Race Week. I think holding a replacement for Swiftsure on over Memorial Day ´╗┐Weekend would make sense. I will miss hanging out in Victoria but the delivery is much shorter and I do like PT.
  13. the Boss. It is a j35 and we are doing it fully crewed, not the cooler DH action.
  14. This makes it worth a lot for us prep'ing for pac cup. Before 2020 pac cup was canceled, I was getting to the point that I was most likely just going to do a loop up there at some point but if it was a race, more motivation. It would be an interesting short handed race. And as Rainy Day said, not hard to be self self sufficient and there is a lot of room between the two marinas. Would end up being a hybrid cruise, race and qualifier for me. Could be a very fun long weekend.
