  1. It’s promoted as a S2H boat, but will it meet the stability requirements ? Quite a light ballast for the displacement - I guess it passed for previous races.
  2. My rule of thumb for smaller wooden boat projects is that completion of the hull is about 50% of the time to complete. It’s the hardest and most critical part though. We are going to be entertained for some time to come.
  3. I think I can see it in see it in the before and now photos
  4. Jade was amazing. She was able to move some very difficult stock. Loved the Mendana campaign.

" Compulsory life lines on an Adams 10 is a real pain. Due to the geometry of that particular boat it is really hard to sail well without getting the sheets caught. The stanchions pro
