  1. No write up, just a post here and there about her.
  2. You nailed it. Hull 99, 1994 build.
  3. The difference in budget between a J/125 and our program is several orders of magnitude. Can’t really speak to a square top on the stock rig, as ours is a custom rig. Sounds like an interesting idea. I’d be interested to see what comes of it!
  4. I will never understand why they felt it necessary to fair and sand the bilge.
  5. I can trim main with one arm unless it’s really blowing. But I also jam my foot under the wheel to hold it steady while I lean forward. I’m 6’6” so I can stretch pretty far across the cockpit.
  6. I agree that the 99 looks sharp with a wheel since it is recessed.
  7. We double hand our 105 with a wheel, and it works great. I prefer it to a tiller short handed or not.
  8. Unless she is rigged differently from Fiti/As Larks/Warrior, I believe she only has checks, not runners.
  9. That’s her sistership, now known as Warrior (née Fitikoko).
  10. Promises/Voodoo has a much nicer interior from what I recall.
  11. Promises was a SMCM boat as well. I spent a lot of time on Fitikoko. Great boat to sail. I second the donation suggestion. St. Mary’s would love to have the boat back.
  12. Page 1 of 291... I was looking for a little bit more of a 30,000 foot view
  13. Where is everyone’s preferred summary of the 2021 changes? There are a lot of very dry YouTube videos and complete lists posted. I’d love to find a cliff’s notes version (video or text) to read and then drill down into the actual rules if I need more.
  14. It would probably have been better to just discuss this with the sailmaker rather than identifying them on an international sailing forum, at least until and unless they failed to make it right. Didn’t really give them a chance before airing the dirty laundry.
