  1. There are always things that I like about boats and things I don't - I am (not confidently) hoping the owner feels the same way and decides on four more with all the knowledge from this iteration and I could take out a mortgage and get a shot at one for half price. This should be taken as a compliment in case unclear.
  2. it's sailing anarchy - people have opinions....unvarnished ones. It looks cheap. fun but cheap.
  3. most practical advice - ensign - they r fully powered with a crappy trolling motor - new sails a fun project - i think the cockpit is comfy - no racing please fish class - great choice too j boats - sail well....well built and tired or crap built and wet - ive owned three - no mas. (tho j100 so pretty) marblehead 22 - i think still just the one 80k last i checked call zurn office if interested. no engine. u guys usually have a good selection of wooden boats up there for 20kish....get one - smile when u sail. https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1929/rhodes--nevins-
  4. we use letterbox a lot and even more if its just me instead of two - run both sym and asym. Asyms use the front hatch a little bit more and keep everything rigged but still on distance races there is penty of time to letterbox and repack. I often just want the kite gone ......one of the most horrifying accidents I ever had on a boat was stepping into an open hatch in a DH race when on the foredeck with a bit of kite cloth over it....was a shorter race with 2 or 3 mile legs and multiple laps - we were pressed for time. I was pretty badly hurt.
  5. many brands of tiller pilots and raymarine, pelagic and currently b and g nac3 - not happy with any of em.
  6. Pelle - i never tire of photos of that awesome little boat...
  7. What kind of total and complete piece of shit posts something like this, watches 160 posts follow up and says not a fucking thing. You are trolling covid to generate traffic on your shitty fucking 2 bit sailing advertising scam? A-hole.

  9. I sail on this boat a lot because I bought it. It works exactly this way up to about thirty knots when the third reef is needed. There is so much line for the third reef that I don't set it up that way but may if I get the gumption to do the b12 the reason I bought the boat. All the 'it can't possibly work this way' folks are incorrect. I wouldn't try this on anything over 35 feet or with a longer boom and I sail on those kind of boats too. Uncle has a Morgan 382 for example. Without slick lines and friction free fairleads it would probably be a nightmare and not worth trying. With them I
  10. seems an excellent choice for you - enjoy it! (if you put a 120 and a schumacher 28 in a blender you might just get something like a 111 out of it!)
  11. https://vimeo.com/246331669 2 minute video worth a look.
  12. glut of crap yes - very very few good boats out there....dont drag ur feet when u find one there fella
  13. Used jpk 1010....3200 r2 very cool. I think the trans Quadra winning bepox still for sale if u fancy a reaching machine. A tarted up a31 with twin rudders bulb keel carbon mast all new sail and electronics. There is a sunfast 3600 available from Adrianl a user on here that is pretty much the most boat u can buy for that money if you are in the states. If u r you young and strong yes a used class 40. But you better also be a darn good sailor. And have another 50k over next 2 years. Dragonfly and Seacart.....? It would be a monohull.
