    Show your boat not sailing

    I took it out of the box, so yeah, a good 85%

    Sweetest sailing old plastic?

    C&C30 Mk1, good manners and very stiff.

    Engine and prop too small?

    Ended up picking up a running 1GM10, hopefully can get the old one out and at least this might get me back on the water.
  5. Put on some Andersen ST primaries. Wish I'd gone a size bigger.

    Special armour makes it unsinkable, just don't actually try to prove it.

    Make sure you never take a black light on that second one.

    My old tub, not sailing. Also, not covered in mussel shells and seagull shit like she is now.

    New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

    Yeah, but that's a lot of steps when you are in a race sequence with a bunch of other stuff going on, you just want to hit a big button that syncs it - look at regatta watches, race timing systems (Velocitek's "Gun" button etc).

    New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

    In the regatta mode, you should make a big timing sync button that moves the countdown timer to the nearest signal, for those times when you didn't quite manage to hit the button right on time.

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    https://victoria.craigslist.org/boa/d/victoria-ted-brewer-design-aragosa-38/7031681815.html I find a lot of Brewer's designs a bit odd, but this is a pretty nice looker I think.

    I think it's doing The Floss.

    Precision Sails

    If you tell them you support Sooke Sailing when you buy a full-size sail, they donate a dinghy sail to the kids sailing program out here in Sooke. I reckon that's pretty decent of them.

    It's like two kids got let loose with a couple of rollers.

    Not so often like that in the waters off Sooke though.

    The lifting part of the foils are down in the cabin, removed for ease of shipping.

    Single Handed roll call?

    I sail my own boat singlehanded almost exclusively, occasionally have my 5 year old son with me but he's not that useful yet
  23. Boats look good, nicely done. Given I have a Mirror dinghy still in kit form that I purchased about 4 years ago, the likelihood of me ever building something like the 850 is pretty slim

    A critical design requirement was to be able to properly dress in a top hat while below.

    Yeah, my budget can't stand a MaxProp, my budget can't really stand this repowering exercise but there you go.
