  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. 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.
  14. Shark, Slow but still get 30-40 boat one design regattas every couple weeks. Need the distance to line function as all the other boats have it. I like that the Novasail shows lift and knock graphically.
  15. Need to buy a new compass for next year with distance to the line functionality.
  16. The boat should be better now than it was for the Canada's cup back in 1994. I'm pretty sure the keel was changed after the cup giving it better heavy air performance. I'm guessing all the measurement lead has also been removed from the boat. I would consider it if I was looking for a good club PHRF boat and had 6 good friends to sail with me weeknights.
  17. The boat is back in the Classified here. What happened?

    With all the adjustments rating on Lake Ontario looks to be 82. http://www.phrf-lo.org/images/certs/2833.pdf
  19. Reduced the price again on my Tripp 33 to 30K, Please see the posting in the classifiieds. Boat is ready to win LYRA again this year with a new owner. http://sailinganarchy.com/classifieds/show-ad/?id=1154
  20. I never had the boat rated as I only did one major regatta a year. Attached is an old IMS cert from the boat, I believe most of the measurements required for IRC are available on this cert. IMS Cert.pdf
  21. bummer but i'm going to pass this on to someone who may have interest great boat Thanks Jeff, It has always been fun racing against you guys.
  22. Just reduced the asking price for my Tripp 33 and listed it here. Sorry to sell the boat but moving on to another chapter with my family. If anyone is looking for a good well equiped race boat it is ready to go in Whitby. Very competitive boat for boat with J109's and Benateau 36'7s.
  23. Registered a couple of days ago.
