    Most of the donations come from individuals with a link to either the Navy or the Naval Academy itself. I'd venture to say 'most' of the donations come from guys who have a high ordinary income tax obligation and / or a large capital-gains taxable event, that can be offset thru the donation...

    Racing Paint Compatability

    not a bad program on the tint. I don't think there are many lighter-colored options like that.. I will do some research on Vivid, if it can go over VC and is a semi-hard paint it could work my boat lives in the water full-time at least for now, id love a pretty white bottom but..... they...

    Racing Paint Compatability

    I've got a hard paint similar to VC-17, basically a euro version of VC and I cant recall the name. I'd like to re-coat with VC17 but I dont want blue-red-"almost black" color that they call "original." Is there a lighter grey anti foul race paint that is OK ? What about that...

    Rig tension guages

    many replies above involve a lot of subjectivity and 'looks about right', and this is not good enough. Particularly if you are racing in a one design fleet or well developed class of boats it is absolutely crucial to have repeatable settings in different wind conditions. Most of us are just...

    Chicago Mac 2022

    As mentioned prior Defiance had an injury--- as to the TP 52's, Mockingbird was put together barely in time for the start and had a couple 'less than ideal' scenarios to contend with , which simplified their decision process. Windquest team probly has better access to weather intel than...

    Infinity 52 sunk North Atlantic

    except the pics aren’t that grainy, were obviously taken from a low plane and the entirety of it makes sense based on location is it really that hard to believe ?   the delivery crew has some explaining to do its gonna get interesting

    Infinity 52 sunk North Atlantic

    why would that be, do you mean that you suppose they under-insured it for some reason ?   doubt that.   the savings in yearly premiums are very negligible to have a too-low declared value.  maybe I don't understand the skepticism as something else

    Infiniti and beyond part 2....we had the 36, 46 and now the 52

    What a sad news story here-- that amazing thing was off to smash records and now this accident offshore-- truly sucks.  Sorry for all involved https://www.facebook.com/TulikettuRacing

    what reason would I have to fight PHRF ?  I haven't even applied for a rating cert. yet.     My question was about LMSRF as an organization, not phrf, not sure how they interact

    West Michigan Thread

    what are the reasons YOU are a member of LMSRF ? Paid my dues for years, I do get some super long email blurbs from them but most of it seems unrelated to me. Nearly certain there's something in there and I understand it's not expensive, i'm just asking myself what the benefits are aside from...
