  1. Hello kids of Anarchy! I am a volunteer for Footloose Sailing in Seattle; we take disabled people of all kinds sailing. We have acquired a Harbor 20 for our club, it's refurbished at the factory in San Diego, and we need to get it up to Seattle. The first quote we got was $1.40 per mile! Eeep! Thought I'd throw it out there to see if there were any Anarchists doing the run. We are a 503c non-profit, so it may actually be tax-deductible, as well. There's no mad rush, as we are not doing a lot of sailing, but there's a good chance we will by year's end. Boat is pictured below
  2. I'll never forget taking my girlfriend at the time out for a cruise, and after I pulled the ripcord like a man, and the Seagull started on the first pull, I thought my girlfriend was aghast that I had started the motor in such a manly and efficient way. Turns out it was a shriek where I whipped her in the face with the cord. As if my lack of love life needed helping along.
  3. - Roll your sail, yes, but do it on a 4" PVC pipe. It will keep you from creasing the sail 12x each time a sail not rolled on PVC will. -Spinnakers stored wet will bleed their colors. -Sunscreen like a juggalo for regattas or you will burn. -Embrace capsizing. As much as raptorsailing says go out in the light, heavy is awesome and more fun. -learn more than one knot. You should know at least a hitch, a bend, and a splice. Tying them quickly has saved my ass more than I should admit.
  4. Hello FD Fanatic; I too have an FD, and I'm practically the only one in the Seattle/ PNW. Where are you located? ?
  5. I've used these guys for the reflective lettering... it really pops, especially when trailering or low light. Streetglo They also have an online tool to see what it will look like.
  6. So you have an FD! Woot Woot! I own "The Wounded Moose Deuce" -- and I suspect that I "raced" against the Flying Tomato in Santa Cruz a long time ago, if it was the same one, something like 80 gallons of water gushed out on the beach after racing. Putting the name on the side is best, I think for FD. Noone can see the back, anyway, and on my Lindsay, there isn't any back, just a big open hole. Post a pic of your boat! !
  7. Let's imagine for a moment that knew what the hell I was talking about when it comes to foiling. (I don't) But as a dingy sailor, the UFO looks like it has all the benefits: stability off the foils, retractability for easy launch, a rig that isn't complicated, nor foils to cut you in half when you swing around/ fall/ move. Its cheap in price, high in quality, and IMHO set to be the "people's foiler" that gets bandied around. The goal is always to have other boats to compete against, and this one meets so many of the points that people are looking for, so... IMHO the UFO would be my c
  8. https://seattle.craigslist.org/oly/boa/6097420787.html I know, Tempest's aren't dinghies, but they are close. I think 3000 dollars is a "bit" high, like 10x too high!
  9. That's a Ballenger deck; I fwded it to him. Must be difficult for you guys to see your hard work rotting away in a field somewhere. The trailer is worth more than that boat, I'm afraid, but that wouldn't stop an idiot like me from fixing that boat up. Let's face it: The FD is hands down the queen of dinghies.
  10. I know, not a dinghy, but still, 300 bucks for a Cal20 with sails and a trailer? Hmm. http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/boa/5959244478.html
  11. Dave this is awesome... please let me help promote it on the West Coast when there's a chance.
  12. constantly futzing on the FD.

  13. is pumped about FD Nationals!
