  1. Ahh, don't bother clattering around with an old ladder and toppers... those frankenboats are for an older, well drinkled sort. Just get some of the local 49er blokes to come by for some pony rides. The oppy kids will either be totally inspired,, or move ~300 miles inland. But they would have anyways. <;~]
  2. Gawrsh. A fellow in England bought the whole production this year, container arrived in England a couple of weeks ago. It's more of a tough market than ever, but if the Hoot makes it anywhere, it'll be in England, where distances are short, and portsmouth rules. I kept one as a souvenir. ......That's all I'll say until he makes his announcement. The Voodoo,, it joined one weekend of races, and that was it. GONE. Rob's quite a perfectionist. I suppose something wasn't right, and he didn't want to go through fixin it. Never answered any queries. I would have loved to try it.
  3. The boat is pretty wide for it's length, with a lot of form stability. The keel weight doesn't really come into plat until you're at ~45degrees, and that's when the side panel catches it from going further. I'd say it's the wrong design for a canting keel. It's probably better to stick with your current 'interests'.
  4. In reality, that's about in the resale price that many of these boats manage. It's not everyone who appreciates a wood,epoxy composite build., fair enough, not all home boatbuilders who do it right.
  5. .....^^... 'results may vary'.
  6. ...here's a way to combine them all!** ........................ **...warning,, results may vary. <;~0
  7. Yer'd certainly sell out another batch of eye bleach.
  8. Whaaat,, you had all the fixins,, but no Tensionometer!!??
  9. You must be attempting irony. Nobody can be that facked to think that democratic socialism as 90% of western countries operate is anything evil., and ~1000miles different than eastern bloc communism.
  10. Not many designs live so close to this forum's name. Cuba sailors, the real sailing anarchists. ......but heck, look at all the added flotation,, and draft stripes on the sail! They have many 1st world designs looking on in shame!
  11. ...and every young sailor who idolizeD him would have been clearly shown the standard of conduct appropriate to the sport.
  12. yah, goes the other direction as well.
