    Maybe it was simply AM sailing in different breeze when this happened in the ACWS/Xmas ditty, but weren't they able to sail noticeably lower and faster DW than other boats on several occasions?  If it wasn't the wind and indeed was the boat, where did this advantage go? Also, regarding TH's...

    Jesus Skateboarding Christ. Will you people knock off the political horseshit for at least 5 full minutes around here? And for God's sake, some of you can't resist talking about TH's TEETH??? Of all the things to nitpick.......fucking hell. Sounds like a goddamn sewing circle with a  bunch of...

    Funniest thing I've seen on SA in a good while. Even down to the spelling of the word "dumber" for obvious reasons. HA

    You forgot one item on the list: Purchase brown underwear/briefs for all crew/shore ops/chase boat personnel to be worn for the reminder of the campaign, if they are to sail again. That was a terrifying thing to watch, and I couldn't imagine being on that boat when it happened. Sack DB. Sack...

    Where are they now? - Retired America's Cup Boat

    Never a contender, but for sure a beautiful boat. Love the 12's from all eras.

    Where are they now? - Retired America's Cup Boat

    I thought that underbody and bustle and keel looked familiar, but that forklift in front of it blocked it a bit. Yeah- too bad about these boats being chopped, but money is money, and I guess to the last owner it was worth more in pieces to scrap. Even though this boat was a lab rat, I think it...

    Where are they now? - Retired America's Cup Boat

    Anybody know what boat this was before becoming the "For Sale"? Looks like a 12 and not an IACC boat...... I thought I remembered one of the Golden Gate Challenge boats being diced up, though I know at least the last boat of 2 built by GGC is still sailing. This one looks like it may have been...

    I believe Mariner was red, too. They must not have learned their lesson first time around............

    Where are they now? - Retired America's Cup Boat

    Does anybody know what finally happened to Liberty? Not that it matters but so much- after all, It WAS the first American boat to lose the AC, but it is a fairly important, if dubious piece of AC history. You'd think someone might have wanted it to preserve it. 12mrclass.com has it listed as...

    Finn sailor meltdown

    Jesus. And Baby Jesus. Couple'o things- 1. After 668-odd posts on Andy Kern & his hijinks on and off the water (& a few slight hijacks), the guy could probably be banned for life and he STILL has gotten his initial wish, which seems to be "ME ME ME- it's all about ME." I myself am...

    Best Deck Shoes?

    Got a pair of the Sperry Gradients about a month ago- sailed a three day(light wind, dry decks) regatta, and they were fine. Low COG, pretty comfy, grippy- HOWEVER, this past week, another 3 day regatta(FS NAC's)- one day of heavy wind, wet decks- I was all over the g#%damn place(lace system is...

    After AC Race #1 what do we know???

    Don't know much(being the noob an' all), but I know this. I would have punched Isler in the balls just as hard as I could had I been close enough after his prestart comment about the brim of one of the crew's(can't remember NZL/SUI) hats being trimmed down to "reduce windage". Seems the...
