  1. Wow, thanks Dave, for the thorough and heart-felt update. The boat looks great. Larry Port Townsend
  2. Thanks. I'll look forward to your report. Larry Port Townsend
  3. Have they started delivering boats yet? Original estimate was for mid-May. Anybody sailed one? Larry Port Townsend
  4. I'm thinking of buying a Raider Sport (the earlier version with CF mast and no jib) that is for sale in Idaho, about a 10 hour drive from where I am in Washington. Still loving yours? Anything I should look out for?

  6. I'm thinking about buying a Raider Sport that's for sale in Idado; I'm in Washington about 10 hours drive from there. Are you still loving yours? Anything to look out for? I"m hoping to get the seller to meet me halfway.

      Larry, I have #23 built about 20 years ago. I've had to make some rudder mods (change gudgeons) and a few other things but overall, good.

      What hull number are U looking at?

  7. Launched a Corsair 750 MK2 with a Volvo V60, which is FWD, and no problems at all. Boat is about 1,800 pounds, figure another 1,000 for the trailer and gear, and the car has a 3,500 towing capacity, so it was fine. It also towed well on the highway.
  8. I called Beneteau USA to get pricing on the 14, but they said they leave that up to the dealers. One dealer emailed me a recommended pricing list, which showed it at about $16,000, but some of the dealers on Yachtworld are asking far more than that. I don't think that Beneteau dealers are particularly interested in selling a dinghy, LOL. If the boat ever had a chance here, the Melges 15, regardless of its own merits, has probably ended that.
  9. https://sfbayalerion.com Lots of helpful information there. I did a test sail in Newport with Gary Hoyt circa 1997; lovely boat. Larry
  10. RS800 in Vancouver: https://vancouver.craigslist.org/van/boa/d/vancouver-rs800-twin-trapeze-sailing/6884274554.html
  11. Still planning on West Coast demos? I'm near Seattle, but often in San Francisco.
  12. Larry,

    Just heard back from Chris Murphy.  I'm going to pass on your phone number to him and here is his contact info.  He'd be happy to hear from you.

      Hey thanks. I know Nanaimo, spent a night there last June en route to Tofino. I'll let you know after I talk to Chris.


  13. Used to race against one in SSS events with my Express 27. Beautiful boats. My sense is they are a bit more of a handful than the Express, but not so much as the O30.
