  1. Unless you're from Hobart,,,,,
  2. 78 was a great race, first time we raced Passage as a sloop, whipped Merlin and set a record with a crew of Seattle mates.
  3. Yeah, nah, most of the 'fridges I've seen were turned off,,,,
  4. That sounds like a great plan. Even better is if you have space install an additional water tank and keep the head on fresh water until you get offshore to cleaner seawater. Likely you already know there is also a double wall "sanitation hose" which works better than basic white hose on intake and discharge.
  5. Built in Happy Valley by Dave Blair.
  6. Turner did that on Long Island Sound and I believe he was racing American Eagle, early 1970's
  7. That plywood looks like particle board,,,,,,
  8. Pictures are OK but no identification requested for fear it will become crowded.
  9. Ernie surely doesn't live in a trailer park, he looks out over Newport Harbour and Catalina from every room in his magnificent home.
  10. That's a bunch of great memories,,,,,, Larger blocks are APM (American Precision Marine) from the early 70's, designed for 12 meter loads . The Sparcraft is a #8, original Ted Mangles patent, 17- 4PH not Titanium,
  11. Call Thommo (714) 329 1995. He'll find you one.
  12. Roger and Paul have done a great job of providing a reasonable looking yacht at an attractive price, a good business equation. Based on the number sold worldwide and that I've seen cruising, at least coastal, tropical and Western Med, I'd have to say congrats. But no, I'm not buying one.
