  1. When I watched it I got the impression Fatboys was going for the right gate and had the inside overlap.
  2. Good coverage of yesterdays three races on Youtube.
  3. Cool I still have my 89' Antigua hat. Retired a long time ago but in similar condition.
  4. Anyone remember what year in the 80's the North Americans were held at Raritan YC in Perth Amboy NJ?
  5. Mark, sorry to hear about Melissa. Hope she heals up quickly. Miss those Youngstown days with the two of you.
  6. I always figured it was from all the Flak he got from the local handicappers and competitors in Montreal when he built his second Rabble the N/M 30. Flak was the next custom boat he built.
  7. Brian moved to the BVI's in the late 90's and now back in Chatham Ontario. Miss sailing on all his boats, always well prepared and great programs.
  8. Did CORK offshore with Insatiable years ago after Brian Rikley got it from Rip in the deal for Flak. Wish I had the money to buy the boat back then. It was a great boat to sail and would have made a great PHRF club racer on lake Ontario.
  9. I'm thinking Kirby 30. Double spreader rig, Kirby 25 only has on set of spreaders.
  10. Read the Shark class rules. The rudder must measure in based on the formula. There is a minimum weight and a number of measurement points it needs to adhere to. I'm guessing PHRF-LO is aware of these requirements. 6.5 Rudder a) The Rudder shall be constructed of solid hardwood or alternately of fibre reinforced plastic over an optional core. The core must be suitable for the applied loads. b) The minimum weight including pintles or pins but less tiller and extension shall be 7.7 kg. (17 lbs.). A maximum of 0.9 kg of corrector weights may be added. c) The blade thickness shall be
  11. We were racing in Kingston where it blows hard pretty much every day.
  12. I had a Tripp 33 and was never out of the top 3 in any Regatta we did on lake Ontario for 8 years. Great boat but a very fine groove.
  13. Late 80's delivery of a C&C 41 back from the BVI. Driving the Tripp 33 a few years ago in the second picture.
  14. Thanks, I'm thinking it's the best bang for the buck at this point. I can see the value in the newer units if I was sailing a much faster boat but rather put the saved dollars into sails.
