    What's up with Rio 100?  Tracker has her down to 10 knots for awhile now. Was heading due south as well. Now back to a port tack heading but still slow.

    Maserati diving south - interesting. Comanche just truckin' along. Modern speeds of these boats just amazing in comparison to everyone else.

    Long Beach Harbor No More

    Was out there Thursday. There is a huge crane and barge loaded with rocks on the east side of Queen's Gate. Looks like they are reinforcing things.

    "Dis is Sayula"

    Saw the movie last Friday evening in Newport Beach. Very well done. I really liked how the story was presented by each crew member. A real inside and personal look into the incredible adventure.

    My newest project

    Bob, With all the carbon being used on the project, I am sure things are being isolated more than usual as part of the build process. Is there anything special being done that would not be done if the hull and deck was mainly fiberglass?

    Jimmy Buffet just bought one of ugliest sailboats I have ever seen...

    I do not see the point you are trying to make. My point was that Tom knows letting his M30 heel over and rip is faster than shortening sail and sailing flat on anything other than going to windward. But you are obviously the expertologist here on this part of the thread! Carry on.

    Took some gentle ribbing on FB from a North Sails Salesman on a photo I posted critical of my boat's heel angle last year. Just having fun on a day sail with friends. We had a great time!

    Tom is spot on and knows his boat. Respect. Sail your boat the best way you know how. As a youngin on the Spencer 62 Ragtime in the late 70's and early 80's we had a lot of guest experts on board over the years trying to reduce sail and sail her flat. Finally, one day a sailing mate of mine who...
