    What is considered running a "Good Program"?

    Speak for yourself, the lifelines on my boat look pretty suspect.

    composite floor boards?

    I race in a class with a minimum weight. I'm right there, so I keep on trying to imagine (legal) ways to make my cabin sole as heavy as possible, so I can remove weight elsewhere.

    do big race boats depreciate?

    So it was $85k in July and it's now $120k in January? Sounds like a great investment!
  4. I'm all for cheaping out with no-name ebay garbage when appropriate, but shroud turnbuckles seem like one of the occasions where it wouldn't be appropriate.

    Chicago Area III

    What's this ORC shit cost? I don't see my boat on their one design list, what's the fleet going to have to pay for measurement?

    But once you get it running, you have to keep on cleaning dead koalas out of the engine compartment.

    Benefits of a solid vang in light air

    I don't know about that, you need the beers most when it's light out.

    NYYC Race Week Home Cooking

    It's a plausible scenario that fits the apparent facts. Even more plausible is that they said they had to luff their sails a bit on port tack all day to keep the hole out of the water and were slower as a result. But, hey, if you enjoy conspiracy theories, Obama did it.

    Dimension Polyant Aramid Sport

    My sailmaker says that the price of Aramid has gone up so much to make it not much cheaper than carbon and not really worth using any more. At least that was his argument for getting our class to allow carbon jibs.
