    Tempest sails

    Thanks - had a look there. The class seems to have died in NA.

    Tempest sails

    This is a shot in the dark but a computer illiterate friend is looking for some used Tempest sails for a restoration project that he's completing. Please send me a message if you have any leads. Thanks, MH

    IOR landfills?

    I've spent a bit of time on this one. It was in good shape when it was donated a couple of years ago. It was originally built as Blue Yankee for the Admirals Cup... The crazy paint job in one of the photos is from when it was used as the Eriksson (sp?) hospitality boat at the Volvo stop over in Boston.

    It depends on the boat, the size and design of the square top, and the ability to depower with rig tune . There is no single answer here.

    Fattest boats

    Is that what that is? We had one on our bay years ago and nobody knew what in the hell it was!

    In fairness, all of these $25k 30 footers are $50k by they time you make them competitive again with sails, rigging...

    I would say that you should buy my Viper 830 if not for the draft. It draws approx. 7'. Link - https://sailinganarchy.com/advert/viper-830/

    It's a pain for sure. We're having the same trouble with boats that we want to purchase. We're happy to answer any questions, provide more photos or do a video walkthrough via FaceTime or WhatsApp. You would have to use a commercial driver or trucker to get the boat across the border though. Frankly, if the border were open, it would have likely been sold already. We'll leave the boat up for a few weeks - if it doesn't sell, we"ll take it down and re-list when the border opens again. Whenever that is. As for the name - you can't go wrong with the Beastie Boys!

    If you're crane launching, the crane pulls it up. If ramp launching, there is a bi-pod that goes over the keel so that you can winch it up.

    Thanks,. We started off rating 60-ish PHRF but after 5 years, our local PHRF has whittled that down to 32 which is just silly in all but light air. (That's an old main that we just flaked. We use a full cover - point taken though)
