  1. Flying Wasp is not an outsider. He must be kidding about 007 Aw c'mon, the vision of this guy harassing George was simply too much to resist. I knew it was BS when you said "regular" crew. George does not regularly race. I am LMAO ! The cockroach who had been deloused from almost every boat the he ever crawled on took FW's hook. line, and sinker.
  2. Mast could be unstepped and the boat could be hauled using the crane at the south side of the harbor. I have a set of straps that would do the job; all you need to do is borrow a trailer. I bet that Blair has one available or can get one.
  3. As I was deciding on the J111, I also looked at other boats such as the Archambault 35, C&C115, even a Summit 35. By the time you get it similarly configured (e.g., carbon mast), there wasn't appreciable difference. So what other ways would you spend $300K other than a used boat? Are you bringing a J111 to Detroit? I would enjoy having more time to race against the design getting to know it's personality. Good for you on treating yourself to that "new boat smell", one of my favorites. Well, close to Detroit - Lake Huron. I took deliver last spring, Hull 25 named unplugged.
  4. It is impossible to underestimate the ignorance of some morons who race on Lake St. Stupid, you being the prime example of that truism.
  5. When I raced in the US we could throw out a DSQ, in fact a DSQ is discardable everywhere I've raced. Very occasionally you'll see a DND (Disqualified Non Discardable) for something very specific. You'll note the other Reflex 38's were mid pack results wise. Not that I ever get DSQ'd, but here we can't throw them out. Different rules for different countries I presume. Sounds like Puma needs some quality competition. Care to provide a link to that "no throw out of DSQ in the USA" rule, or are you just going to continue bloviating?
  6. Thanks for your reply Andy, such as it is, even though it did not answer any of the specific questions that I have asked in a civil manner. Perhaps others will have better luck in getting answers to their questions Happy Thanksgiving to all.
  7. Crew memberships have always been $10, we are now looking at actually offering something for that money(a novel concept apparently). Crew memberships never have or never will be required, so please don't put that assumption in anyone's head. No new fees are added, a full membership for boat owner over 20 feet is still $40, though we are looking into changing it (The budget numbers have finally settled in after a bit of volatility, and we are determining our cash flows) Owners of boats under 20 feet (aimed at dinghy sailors) can now join for $10 and receive the newsletter and

  9. Andy, When trying to reach out, you may want to consider the fact that not everyone is willing to sign up with Facebook in order to communicate. Good luck, and keep us informed on this thread
  10. Less than 25 people had made reservations as of yesterday. CYA called for an emergency meeting with only the Commodores of the YCs invited. The meeting was last night at Columbia. Don't know the outcome, but we all should know shortly. Thanks for the info update. Anyone who is still clueless enough to financially support CYA, gets exactly the representation that they deserve.
  11. How appropriate to get this email on Halloween from the CYA zombies trying to resurrect the Yachting Ball. Apparently they didn't get the memo and didn't hear the shuffling of those sailors who voted with their feet. Subject: CYA Yachting Celebration Date: Mon, 31 Oct 2011 18:14:53 -0700 (PDT) From: CYA The Chicago Yachting Association In cooperation with US Sailing is proud to present the CYA Yachting Celebration 10 December 2011 Chicago Yacht Club 400 E Monroe Street 7 PM to 10 PM Business casual attire (jacket required)
  12. DuSable Harbor report. "F" (for fucked) dock: some finger piers have broken lose and are ~20 degree incline. Warning posted on gates of "E", "F". and "G" docks not to enter; I would disregard if proceeding with caution. Sunk boat at the pump out, as well as few smaller boats severely damaged including a failed roller furling forestay at the east end of "D" Dock. A number of furling jibs destroyed. As for insurance, I believe that unless the policy was written for a specific amount regardless of replacement cost, owners of 30 year old boats will be lucky to get present ma
  13. I may have one for sale in your neighborhood; FT10 on a trailer in Pensacola.
  14. Cradles are not allowed; you'll have to pay for cradle storage where ever the cradle is now. Other than your boat falling off jack stands and the inability to work on the boat bottom, there shouldn't be many concerns; lol.
