  1. There is a Astus 20.5 that competes in the Watertribe Everglades Challenge quite regularly. To my knowledge they have never failed to finish, and I find myself lusting after her in Key Largo. I would buy one in a heartbeat. AndyMan

  6. Jeff, It was another amazing experience. SuperFreak was everything we hoped for and more, very difficult to get off the beach, and needs at least a foot of water to do her thing, she will go up wind double reefed in 25 kts plus and power reaches like mad. Naviguesser NateDog had us avoid every major cut, mainly due to wind direction but also to avoid the confinement of the ICW, Nate really got it done for us in some very difficult conditions. We easily could have shaved off time and I think a 2 day run for us is not out of the question, you are going to have to ask Nate ab
  7. No likely, I know too early. AndyMan

  9. Sounds like you are in the ballpark. I retrofitted a G Cat 21 with a asym and I set the pole length so the kite sheeted to the forward beam. (I had just bought a 21sqm Hobie Tiger kite) I then played with the hoist by just duct taping a microblock on the mast above the hounds. You want the ability get the luff tight. Once you are happy with the distance make the block fast. Remember a windsurfer mast is quite flexible, make sure the guy lines have downward angles. My G Cat has a front beam so I made a dolphin striker and a "down wire" I ended up 4 ft above the hounds,
  10. AndyMan and NateDog have one more sail on our new to us G Cat 21, SuperFreak. Huge thanks to Masthead Sailing Gear and Sunrise Yacht Products for custom fore and aft tramps. Picked up a sweet 21sqm Hobie Tiger kite from Andy at the Tackle Shack, and the Freaks sprit is a slightly shortened Laser Radial mast. Super Cat rudder castings and extended blades replaced the dodgy originals. Keels ground down and replaced with fiberglass dowels. Etc, etc.... Our goal is two days, fingers crossed. AndyMan
