    Something different for CA

    Is the FB definitely a solo perch?  Might be nice to welcome the Mrs. up or maybe a young'n to help drive.  Could be designed for 1.5 people so nobody besides the driver and their SO would get too comfy sharing the space.

    Marinas: Blaine, Bellingham, Sidney, etc.

    If you're seriously considering Blaine, don't forget to consider flying into Vancouver, B.C. It's on the "right" side of Vancouver proper, i.e. closer, instead of SeaTac on the other side of Seattle.

    Marinas: Blaine, Bellingham, Sidney, etc.

    You can see the Blaine marina from I-5 so it can't be that much harder to "get" to than Bellingham. I've chartered out of B'ham several times and like the town a lot. Many more marine services nearby and some good brew pubs, university town, etc. create probably a more attractive community...

    My newest project

    Gents - Any thoughts on shortening the hardtop a skosh?... I keep covering the last 5-6 feet and the second post with my finger and like the idea of more uncovered area on the aft deck. I know...I can build my own...this one is for Kim, but I keep imagining being anchored in some remote inlet...

    2016 Vic-Maui

    No experience with this race but have a friend in Div 2 and had a question. Is this meant to be a rhumb line race? or is that just a feature of this year's conditions and the non-planning boats in the class? Thanks!

    My newest project

    Cool stuff yet again! Very impressive to see they have their techniques honed so it seems like this is hull #10 rather than hull #1 of a custom design. No need for batting practice...they really get after it! Thanks again for the pics/updates.

    Anyone know how the windsurfer is planning to navigate the no sail zone? Or have details on his rig?
