    I bought a similar boat to an i550 last year and it has a spare double spreader carbon rig (23’ P ) as well as a Carbon/Aluminum smaller double spreader mast (20’ P) Both rigs have all the standing rigging plus some spares. The tall rig has a North Black Carbon mainsail from a Melges 20, Carbon weave jib and a pretty new Mylar jib. Would like to sell as a package but can sell separately.

    It’s seems sad to us racers but that’s not their market. I think their market for this boat is to be a more performance oriented Hunter or Catalina with the ability to trailer sail or at least transport it to other locations.
  9. No, but I did buy that boat for parts last week. Had two nice sets of sails and two rigs, etc. It is the hull that I am using/modifying
  10. I took a Carbon 49er rig and cut 15 inches off the top. The sails are from a Melges 20
  11. I have a Skud also. Since I had spare 49er rigs I put one on the Skud. Here is a picture. Love the boat !
  12. The bulbs are cast as one piece. The 300 lbs bulb came from the factory. I made the 100 lb bulb. I made a mold of the lower 8” of the board and inset that into a mold I made for the bulb. I then poured lead into the bulb mold. Both bulbs are one piece.The factory bulb has a thin plastic coating on it and the 100 pound bowl that I built was just faired with epoxy. For the lead I bought number eight lead shot and made a Slurry with epoxy and poured it into the bulb mold. I am using the standard board. I built one that was 65 pounds and I had no flex in the board at all so I feel it will han
  13. Here is the attachment method for the bulb. It is from the Skud 18 manual. My Skud 18 is in storage but I am going to the boat this weekend to pick up the small 100 lb bulb to use on the 49er. I have two bulbs for the Skud —— one is 100 lbs and one is 300 lbs and both attach the same way.
  14. While I don’t have any mathematical loads on the centerboard or hull, several years ago I added a 65 lb bulb to my then 49er with no issues. I also flipped the boat with no bulb my brother and I at a total weight of 400 lbs hung from the board. On this project I have shortened the rig to 6 meters and going to try a 100 lb bulb that I have. Rig and sails are done. When I did the last boat with the 65 lb keel bulb there were times when it would have flipped but you could tell the bulb brought it back
  15. The bulb is 100 lbs. I use it on my Skud 18. It has a groove in it that I can slide the bottom of the board into. It secures with 2 stainless steel retainer pins that slide through the bulb and fin.
