  1. https://corvallis.craigslist.org/boa/d/corvallis-capri-142-sailboat/7374394477.html
  2. Took my Laser out on Monday for the first time this year. Blowing 15-20 for a while and it took my aging body some time to remember what to do. But I eventually re-figured it out, just like every year going back a few decades - thanks for the fun Mr. Kirby!
  3. Thanks for the tips everyone. My grandfather passed away when I was teen, 30+ years ago and he wasn't much for talking about the war after he returned from overseas. Just a few snippets to various family members who are having trouble recalling details at this point.
  4. I'm interested in learning more about my grandfather's WW2 military service. I understand many individual service records were lost in a fire (1973). I know where he did his basic training, his Army Division, and that he served in the Pacific. Does anyone have experience with military record search companies gathering information with other sources?
  5. Gonna take forEVER to reach 100+ pages in this thread with that limitation...
  6. Old thread on another site with more pictures - interesting aft storage compartment. https://sailingforums.com/threads/star-dancer.29497/
  7. Skipper https://salem.craigslist.org/boa/d/sublimity-14skipper-sailboat/7306979523.html
  8. Wingsailer - I'd forgotten about these. https://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/boa/d/puyallup-wing-sailer-one-person-sailing/7299965735.html
  9. Heavily modified aluminum canoe https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/boa/d/fairview-17-ft-sailing-expedition-canoe/7304232260.html
  10. Are ILCA boats required to be sold with official ILCA sails? If so, buy boat and sell unused ILCA sail (to someone racing official ILCA events) at a discount over buying retail. Then buy your un-fee-tainted knockoff sail and probably have some cash left for a new keyboard for your computer after it wears out from continuing to solve this terrible injustice through posting on this thread. Sorry, back to your regularly scheduled programming...
  11. Yup https://shorelinesailboats.com/2018/10/1997-escape-expedition-14-5-3700/
  12. Only $195 for this 1960's wooden, uh, something near Spokane, WA. Sail made from an old air force parachute, so maybe haggle them down a few bucks so you can make something better from a blue poly tarp. https://pullman.craigslist.org/boa/d/tekoa-wood-sailboat-complete-project/7240212760.html
  13. Even at 80+ Mbps network speed on a laptop, their new radar loop is very slow to load and still slow to replay the loop even after it loads. Yes, their new map looks much nicer, but I'm looking for alternatives.
  14. 110 year old house... yes it does. Avoiding anything that can draw air into the house such as the gas furnace in the basement, or the vent fan over the shower. The central air fan runs all day just to keep pulling air through the filter. Air quality improved from "Hazardous" on the scale down to "Very Unhealthy" yesterday. Back up to "Hazardous" this afternoon.
