  1. Damn, China owns everything
  2. Where are the molds? How much for a carbon version with a stiffer keel trunk and better thought out keel lifting system? The boat was always fun to sail and more comfortable and roomy downstairs than it gets credit for.
  3. Ivars, is a great guy. Loved sailing with you at NA's in Pensacola that year. Tell your Dad Lee says hi!
  4. Pros cons ? Looking for a more comfortable boat for fun racing. How are they holding up? I did search. Flame away. Thanks
  5. Lots of people in the GYA will not be happy to lose what they thought was a harsh rating (really a Gift) to go with this scientific method ORA.
  6. In terms of best 30 ft boat. Melges 32 is the best boat period. But it may be a little to expensive and it is a little more of a handful for a young crew. I would say the FT10. Good manageable boat with a little interior and the right price range, also quite fun to sail.
  7. Good looking boat, I usually don't care for Beneteau. Whats it gonna rate?
  8. They look extremely tempting but always heard they could not sail to the rating.
  9. Why so angry? I think it was a bunch of boat owners who got invested in a boat. Had a good time with it. End of story. This goes on in every one design class "repairs and improvements" that ended up making some boats more competitive than others... My .02 cents
  10. I bought #41 new and was quite please with the boat. Had a few things to fix, but at the price point I expected it. Had the makings of a good class then things went off the rails. I would say that was mostly due to there being no organized structure in the class. Everyone just got on SA and said whatever they wanted starting all kinds of pissing matches, want a new rudder, I don't want dacron sails, I want George to cut his hair!! lol. For the most part I enjoyed the people involved in the class and boat. I though it was a great sailing boat, I really should have kept it longer. LONG
  11. Yeah, I have heard about the rudder issues. Looking like Old School may not be worth the trouble.
  12. Curious on how the keel was lengthened on Old School? Or is it a whole different keel? Farr 40 Keel? Any other big issues other than that it is bound to have wet core?
  13. Take this topic to Liquid Hydrogen Anarchy please.
