  1. When they 1st started doing runs, maybe around 1230, they used a tow boat to get on the foil. As the breeze filled in, 1430-1700, (S, SE 12kts) they were, from my vantage point, able to get the boat foiling w/o the need of the tender. I also witnessed a fully foiling jibe, but wasn't able to grab any pics.
  2. This was a bit far away, but fully foiling. Chase boats were hard pressed to keep up. Very impressive. They then rolled into a foiling tack (as I was cleaning the phone camera lens, unfortunately), with both foils in the water.
  3. 'Sorrows of Gin' blog? More props to the blog if true...
  4. Some pics from Sandy hitting Southern RI
  5. Couldn't just wrap that in electrical tape...? pussy...
  6. Copy that. So much for vicariously living through an over simplified computer animation....
  7. I refused to buy the code zero.... Mistake #1...
  8. I saw recent pics that showed every piece of deck hardware had been removed. A sad thing to see for a fast boat. Lots of people wanted to play with her but Larry never shared. The winches were removed prior to the 2010 Cup race. In case the legal battle regarding USA made parts went through, all the winches on Sayonara were American made. They could then put them on the Tri to make it race legal.
  9. Man, those guys are fast... I can't even see 'em! Nothin but smoke..... or was that from our firecrackers? Firecrackers?? on a Boat??! what's next, bottle rockets??
  10. Man, those guys are fast... I can't even see 'em!
  11. hmm I don't feel too bad about not being in the water yet and doing basic maintenance things like exterior varnishing tonight. Congrats on the second, what is the word on firefly (is it ex something or other?). Imagine the delivery home won't exactly be to toasty either. It was really cold on the delivery home ... 'how cold was it?'
  12. Nice! In the past several days I have invested my check from the guy who boat the boat. cycled a lot, thought about all the checks I used to write, and all the time I used to spend driving down to the boat to get it ready for the season, etc. So Glad those days are gone now... you'll miss it boss..... for sure
  13. yep missed a "T" sorry, sue me! Free initial consultation... just like a drug dealer... first hit's free.... or so i'm told...
  14. fyschebone already sent me hate mail for beating him to it.....
