    A trimaran daysailer foraging boomers

    That mast is going to be too tall for a 25 footer!  It will be better suited to a 33' + tri or (dare I say it) 43'+ Proa...

    Moisture Meters

    A moisture meter is only as good as the person using it.  A good surveyor will use it as one of a number of tools to properly assess the condition of a vessel not as the end all tool to find problems.

    38' Brenta donated available for lease/purchase

    The one on the cover is not either of the two on Martha's Vineyard.  This one was based on Eastern Long Island where she regularly races against J/109's.  We altered the traveler car on the jib so we can in-haul her.  She is generally faster than a J/109 upwind but is slower downwind due to her...

    j /90 Turbo

    Hey Bob, I got the drawing from Rod. Built the rig and put everything where it is in the drawing. I had Harken pull up the original list of hardware that was supplied with the boat and bought the 2013 equivalent of them from Harken. Just buy the boat!!!
