  1. Check the real estate values in the communities around most Yacht Clubs and Sailing Centers. Perform an analysis of the correlation between the top sailors in the world and their childhood home proximity to a Yacht Club or Sailing Center. Of course there are exceptions....but not many. Tie in the politics of the WS or USSA...Uncle Commodore will put a good word in for you kid! Holy Smokes, I'm going to the Trials ,can I bring my girlfriend? It's not my boat, can I have a car even if I don't win?
  2. Buyers Remorse Imminent....
  3. You might want to consider donating it. With all of the gear and assets associated with the fine yacht , it may work out in your favor. Consult your accountant.
  4. I did not win, see you in court...sound familiar?
  5. How are the sails? This one is cool but will be a 20 ton of Belgian Hedrowe to Tack ! The interior will be great for card games for the off watch....while being served a nice Thanksgiving Dinner! One Rum per watch....unlimited beer and wine! Back in the day.... old school racing was for professionals.....successful businessmen and their families and friends. A pro or two amongst the mix. It's hilarious to see the 'let's pretend" corinthian only classes claiming validity. Heck, with the current environment all "Cat 3's will qualify as Cat 1's" , if they were smart and resorted to w
  6. A Drifter is intended to be deployed in a steady frustratingly light wind direction for cruising sailboats. Most have not properly cleaned their bottoms (which actually helps create drag to help the sail fill), it can be a nice .6oz or even 1oz big round genoa shaped kite (ish) looking thing. Free Flying Luff is preferred... If your racing, a windseeker is just like a Spin Staysail....light and fast..if you are trying to point you then can put up your J1.....or super top secret J(.) Your local loft can hook you up with whatever you want that is practical and functional for your
  7. It will have two wheels a short rig and a stubby keel, with the deep keel option...
  8. [after Spicoli wrecks Jefferson's car] Jefferson's Brother : My brother's gonna kill us! He's gonna kill us! He's gonna kill you and he's gonna kill me, he's gonna kill us! Jeff Spicoli : Hey man, just be glad I had fast reflexes! Jefferson's Brother : My brother's gonna shit! Jeff Spicoli : Make up your mind, dude, is he gonna shit or is he gonna kill us? Jefferson's Brother : First he's gonna shit, then he's gonna kill us! Jeff Spicoli : Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.
  9. The Mainsail looks typical for this type of clorox bottle ......ancient dacron crap...and the built in excuse was already prepared...water in the fuel...they will blame wherever they filled up....ever change your filters? Too cheap to toss it on a truck for a direct delivery to the southern destination port. Then they could motor around wherever they want ! Bet it would just be a dock queen upon arrival anyway! Kind of reminds me of a short discussion with a very well educated (Scientist) that tried to convince me that a well trimmed Genoa was faster than a Spinnaker downwind. You would no
  10. It is imperative that all must be included in the ability to view the America's Cup LIVE. It makes me sick that a Media Giant such as NBC is charging to view this internationally popular sport. Talk about exclusion....you can only watch a rich person's sport if you pay for it! Where is the Inclusion and Diversity Promotion ? This is Shocking and Offensive!
  11. There is no Diversity , Equity or Inclusion ...how dare the networks (Media) request a fee from the USA Market to watch such a exclusive and owner self absorbed Yacht Race? This is SHOCKING!
  12. My Prescription to all of you is one Pitcher of Margaritas followed by unlimited ice cold Corona Beers. Your Prescription also includes to watch or re-watch this movie (Trading Places) again. I bet most of you cannot deny that you enjoyed a big laugh out of Aykroyd eating the salmon out of his Santa Clause suite on the City Bus ! Eddie Murphy was hilarious and was fresh out of SNL, did you ever see Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood? Can we please get over the politics and learn to laugh again....Get over it Mortimer! Oh Yeah, I almost forgot, the actress JLC had no problem playing a hooker and dr
  13. This is exactly what should have been done on my boat so could have raced the next day after my sprit snapped off!
