  1. Difficult to find much information on this, I see a new version is to be released soon. How might you compare it to the ProStart from Velocitek?
  2. This could be a cam cleat, a mobile phone app, charting software, or really anything that easily separates you from your money in relation to sailing the seven seas. With that said I'll start with something that's free: My favorite compass app is https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dahlhof.rsto
  3. I couldn't tolerate waiting so I reposted on the main page. CH
  4. I guess I already failed the test as this made me chuckle. #RIP to my hopes and dreams.
  5. 200 mm maximum length, I'll let you figure it out the rest of the way.
  6. I am a bit impatient, thus a repost in a more active part of the forum. I've read the tuning guides from North and Quantum, but I was wondering if there were any stones left unturned. From those in the class what are the keys to sailing well in a competitive fleet? Really curious about everything from running/standing rigging, bow appendages, and McLube to trim, heel, rudder angle, handling, etc. what are personal/ideological/technical keys to success?

  8. Thanks Valcour for both links, I can't make the Facebook one work. Reached out to a guy who has a 49er listed in Texas but he traded it two days ago unfortunately. Can't believe it's so hard to find skiffish craft in the United States. CH
  9. Thanks to you both, I'll start to hit the classifieds and see what turns up.
  10. Single handed isn't a huge priority. Upswind SA on a 49er too much to handle single handed if breeze is light? Don't see too many RS dinghies in the states.
  11. Looking for a relatively modern design that can be had for <10K, planes upwind/downwind in 10 knots or less, and is straightforward/easy/quick to setup. I was briefly on the UFO bandwagon but I'm not sure it'll get up on foils in breeze consistently seen around Baltimore (plus floating debris, whether bodies or beer cans, may cause some damage), I had tried to find an owner willing to go on a pre-purchase test ride but was unable to find anyone willing. Singlehanded capability would be nice as well in a pinch, some RS Feva XLs in the harbor but rig height is tiny and you're always shadowed.
