    BP28: Revisiting a 50-yo design brief

    I'll share my thoughts on this as I'm the individual Bob has been working with on this design. Lot's of good points here- many questions that can't be answered.  That being said- Bob and I talked about the need for a modern, well built performance cruiser for a market that we feel is not being...

    The Merits of a J9

    Has anyone shopped a new Malibu or Mastercraft ski boat recently?  Seems to be a pretty good market for $150k-$200k 24’ wakeboard boats that are definitely not being marketed to grandparents.  Or perhaps a 29’ center cockpit fishing boat w/ twin outboards?  It’ll set you back $250k easily w/ a...

    Why did Ed kill the FT-10 class?

    Yet to talk to an owner who hasn't loved their Tiger. That's gotta mean something??

    Why did Ed kill the FT-10 class?

    I've got a lot to say on the issue- (caveat I own one)- but being in and around the boat business for over 20 years I believe the build quality issues of the FT have been overblown. Having watched new Hunters, Beneteaus and even a few new J's come into our market and seen some of the after...

    What to do around Portland

    Many Kayaking opportunities- current is slower on the Willamette right now- check out for rentals. Hopefully you like beer- sign up for and ride to a couple of good brewpubs in town. Forest Park has great hiking trails close in- you're a 1/2 hour from...

    Sounds to me like there just isn't a large enough market to support a high-end line of sailing gear. You've got a few hard-core users of top of the line gear and then a lions share of the market looking for a serviceable product that only get's used 5-10 times a year.

    Tigers 1 & 2 in WIRW 2011

    It was a great week- some very well sailed boats- Kirks was best. When we made mistakes we paid instantly. We played with our rig tensions more than usual- and really enjoyed feeling the boat respond accordingly. Tues as the wind was blowing dogs off chains we were going upwind w/ great...

    I've got an Ipad 2 w/ 3g- INavx worked great for us- used a $10. dry bag I picked up at a kayak store and had no problem reading it during the day. At night we used the "dark" screen and it was good as well. Battery lasted the entire two day race (though the ipad went to sleep between uses- a...
