  1. Not Rock but I have always loved it. Good movie too.
  2. I self nominate for the position on Relm Architect. The Gulags must be built. Lost.
  3. I have steel wheels for winter and the skirting has survived numerous tests. Gets driven hard on unpaved roads. Lost
  4. Six year old Subaru WRX. Six speed manual. Lots of fun in the snow. Only 100K Km on it so can not bring myself to change. Lost
  5. It is much worse than you think. We agonize over changes that would likely only give minuscule performance improvements, like less than 1 percent . We overspend on sails and lines that until recently had to be considered disposable after a short life span. We paint our hulls with the latest go fast magic and then sand it all off. Hours are spent recruiting, training and encouraging crew to donate their finite time. All to come in behind some one who is a much better driver or caught the lucky shift. Did I mention that as the owner/skipper most of the labor and all
  6. Thanks for the info. I had to reboot my XXXXbook account as I have not looked at it for a long while. Lost
  7. With a little heat it will be carbon. Lost
  8. Do you have a link? I looked and could not find any mention. Lost
  9. Personal Webcam http://www.hartcomm.ca/webcam.html Lost
  10. Do you have a picture or drawing of this set-up? We were experimenting with our #3 today with a temporary set up to sheet the sail inside the shrouds and it worked well. Lost
  11. A bunch of local ones. https://www.novascotiawebcams.com/en/webcams/halifax-waterfront/ Lost
  12. I tried to make a drawing but can't seem to get the correct format. I will work on it. The jib strop is 93 inches or 236 cm. The gen strop is 30 inch or 76 cm approximately. There 22 inch or 56 cm between the had points where the 3 blocks are mounted. I had to play with the sizes to get it to function ok. It would be better if the hard points where farther apart. I have always wondered if the forward track was mounted too far out to the rail. Any questions ask away. Lost
