  1. I believe they are Bomar 3530's
  2. they can always be deflected to the primaries
  3. he moved the boat back east when his family relocated
  4. https://sbyc.org/documents/10184/195844/2021_SB2KH_Results.pdf
  5. if it's a short sprit consider a fixed attachment point. If it's more traditional look into going 2:1 with it
  6. thought I was going to have to do the same but after blasting the base of the mast on my 105 it cleaned up nicely and nothing was needed
  7. ya that's what's a bit confusing. I didn't see anywhere it says that blocks need to be same diameter and mechanisms? Can ferrules be incorporate in areas where blocks once were etc? I'm not even seeing min/max halyard and rigging sizes dimensions
  8. As the boats are aging, a lot of the equipment and deck hardware needs replacement. I've read through the class rules and other resources but haven't found a clear answer to whether or not you can replace deck hardware (blocks, cleats, clutches etc. with equivalent and more modern alternatives from what was provided from the factory. Does anyone have experience with any restrictions?
  9. Unfortunately I don't believe SF has seen the potential yet of a well sailed FT10. No offense to the owners up there but the one you are using in your results has never sailed in a OD event. The level that the upper ends of the fleet sail at in SoCal and the PNW are more on par with what eightball did in your example. Really doesn't make much sense to compare the boats unless you have equally talented teams. Not to knock any of the boats I think the J/111 is a great boat.
  10. keep in mind we have a 3 rating system in SoCal. The delta between the bouy rating and the offwind rating is greater depending on the downwind potential of the boat. The J/111 was given a provisional temporary random leg rating for this race only since it doesn't have an approved rating yet. If the boat ends up rating 30 Random Leg then it most likely would have a rating in the 36-39ish region for bouy. I believe this was also the owners first race.
  11. Tom,

    My name is Eric Schlageter and I own the FT10 "Ruckus" and put the 1D35 Misfit together. Pretty sure we've met.

  12. EWS do I know you? I see you you have FT10 #49. But, I don't know the Flying Tigers by number.

  13. What is happening in a few days? Is this the 1D35 Turbo EWS is eluding to? The story is featured on the SA home page this AM. Cool project... https://picasaweb.go...kgE&feat=email# But didn't the J111 KONTIKI 5 beat the 1D35 REVOLUTION in Key West (albeit the 111 had a 42 vs the 1D's 36 PHRF)this year? Rag Bag's 111 is rating 36 here in SF...not sure what a 1D35's PHRF is here... According to norcal phrf 36 with sym 42 with assy There were two 1D35s in last weekend Corintian Midwinters, one rated 36 (standard) and one rated 21. Neither one hung with the 111 o
  14. the boat has been rated at 33/27/18 in Socal without the square top main & 30/24/12 with the square top. Didn't mean to derail the J/111 thread so please continue on

Rag Bag's 111 is rating 36 here in SF...not sure what a 1D35's PHRF is here... That's the boat I was refering to. Obviously not much 1d35 in it anymore.
  16. It would be the 1D35 Turbo.....few days and it will all make sense
  17. ya but I had to mute it after about the second "puff on".....I'd be searching for that button if I was on the boat
  18. what is that guy talking about

  19. keel bolt backing plates cut away....stainless tube runs to the deck with an internal G10 rod....pretty standard practice these days
  20. A vertical to near vertical foil is always going to catch kelp regardless of the bulb style. You can restrict it's use during OD events but to race that thing in SD PHRF events without one is not going to help their phrf game much. Might as well not even leave the dock.
  21. It's called a kelp cutter....welcome to San Diego
  22. It appears that the cheapest you can get one on the water with little to no options is around $285,000 with a basic sail inventory. Factor in your sales tax and it's over $300,000. This is bare bones minimum from what I have seen.
  23. Fun day but not a big boat or ULDB day for sure. Congrats to the winners.
  24. hasn't been the most exciting race pressure wise but it's great to see how this one has unfolded. Lotta talent out there....a little luck....and some hail mary's. The 125's are a weapon. Good luck guys.
