    Magnitude 80 refit

The new draft will be right around 18' or so, designed so it would have the same righting moment without the hit from the canting keel.

    I can't judge the size that well, maybe the boards for the new seacart

    I talked to Rob a while back about the 10.6, which was also built outta wood. Fairly certain its just a cost saving measure

    2011 Mini West Coast Tour

    Jerome, If I can get a sail on hull #1 soon enough and built at a reasonable time, I would be glad to sail in the TP, but not sure it can happen in at a reasonable time

    Rope clutches

    Crush, sounds like you have improperly sized halyards or improperly spec'd hardware. Spinlock clutches shouldn't and don't normally slip if properly matched up for the loads, lines, etc.

    Treating Raw Spectra to Make it Stiff

    well I suppose you could try using a line coating like maxi jacket or rp25, I know they were originally designed for abrasion resistance, but it's possible they would help with your problem as well

    Mini Wing Mast

    Mini Wing Mast

    Weight is comparable to standard carbon mast. Boat structure has to be increased. Things need to be led to the mast. Different electronic set up. Good downwind (easy setup, better when reaching). More expensive So overall, looks like it's a little more difficult than some sailors would...
