  1. Had considered calling the Moorings and letting them know. Wasn't sure how receptive they'd be to a non-customer bitching about someone who had just chartered no less than a dozen boats for the week...
  2. Oh I'm sure. If you take a look at the "itinerary" section of their website, it lists the "Rage Level" of each stop in the islands. Anegada was "Rage Level - 5/5" and I believe it - it caused me incredible amounts of rage as I actually felt my hangover set in prematurely while I was awake in my berth at 4AM. Here was a picture of the PC43 raft up the morning after - note that at some point during the middle of the night, at least 3 other power cats had left the raft up. Anyone who has been to the Anegada mooring field knows that its tighter than most, and I can only imagine how danger
  3. Haven't posted in years, but I figured I'd come in here and warn y'all about these fuckwads. "Bucketlust" is a company that offers crewed charters in "exotic" "bucketlist" locations where you meet your "forever crew". God I want to vomit. Be right back. Go check their cringe-worthy website if you'd like. It's basically a service that offers to let you re-live your Spring Break days as a grown ass adult. Unfortunately for us, we didn't think to go on their website to find out where they'd be ahead of time to avoid them . We were just in the BVI doing the rounds and we'd cont
  4. interior pics here http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2017/Ts-42-2948416/France#.Vw0RQ3pA5Zsalthough I'm not sure if the boat listed is the one pictured as in the specs they say fixed keels while the boat pictured has daggerboards. Unless Mrs. Muffin is as thunderous as you, you should be OK. I might prefer a bit more tankage for both water and fuel Mrs. Muffin is quite petite Not sure how I feel about the berth in the middle of the salon. The berths in the hulls look nice but it sounds like they're only in the port side hull. That listing has it only at 2 berths which is quite
  5. There's a lot to like about this boat. It certainly seems like the "sailors" cat in terms of performance and layout. Not sure if it would pass the wife test or not (although I met my wife on a capsized JY-15 so it might) The cockpit area seems very short and narrow. Once you're done with sailing for the day, the entertaining of guests has to start and having a nice area to do that outdoors would be ideal. Perhaps a cabin-top traveller arrangement could be worked out and a bench seat could be added to the rear beam? I don't mind so much the tiller setup as the sailor in me apprecia
  6. Maybe they're not racing when that pic was taken or they had just come around the C mark and the crew hasn't pulled the downhaul on. Lots of reasons why those wrinkles could be there besides a mis-cut sail.
  7. Anyone build an AC72 model that I can buy yet? Gotta get me one of those!
  8. WHere do I buy one. I need one today. I have alligators out back that need chasing.
  9. Tad,

    It looks like you had a great time in the Tybee. Let me know sometime when we can get together and check out the world of cat racing. I am intrigued.

  10. I only periodically check in on this train wreck of a thread.... but is there any chance that Hurricane Bill could put an end to our little explorer out there?
  11. So where is the floating reef these days?
  12. so does this guy have the sails necessary to try to make it around the horn? or is he just going to drift off of S. America forever?
  13. This is one of my all-time worst case scenario fears - being separated from the boat. During my two Tybee 500 campaigns, we flipped probably close to 6 or 7 times and didn't get separated, but there were close calls. Luckily we're always within sight of land with PFD's and personal EPIRBs. I've had the Nacra 20 sail away from me before... don't want to have it happen in the ocean.
  14. Someone needs to post the Void Ho video on the NY Daily News site.
