  1. Thunderbirds are great boats, the big main helps them in light airs and the boat is robust and likes more breeze. I have a glass bird so not much help with the wood ones, but check out these fleets over at facebook. Seattle and Boston have a lot of knowledge of the wood boats. https://www.facebook.com/Thunderbirdfleet2seattle https://www.facebook.com/ThunderbirdFleet5Boston/ My T-bird - https://www.facebook.com/CompoundXTBird1050
  2. Check in with Snapper - He has done the same thing with a Holder 20.

  7. Ok, I'll admit, I haven't read every post. But didn't the original video of the boat show it with the mast down on the deck??? Where did it go???

  10. BUMP, this guy has got to be close to launching/sinking. Any updates from the people nearby??
  11. That looks awesome, time to start playing the lottery.
