    What is 72s are still the boat after tomorrow?

    After the amazement and wonder this cup as brought, why wouly/should there be a switch? Sure, the boats can be refined to make them easier to sail, but any change would be a huge downgrade. Another question... If nothing major changed with the rule, how many teams show up for the next cycle...

    Carbon Masts

    So we dropped the rig in my Melges 30 a few weeks ago. Not fun. I've been looking into options and have gotten a bid from Southern to replace the mast that was there. The mast price itself was not bad, but the shipping from South Africa was through the roof. So... Does anyone have any...

    SD Union Trib - 11.23

    Take a look... or don't... :lol: They came for six weeks and stayed 16 months. But it is time for the BMW Oracle team to leave San Diego in its quest for the America's Cup. After one more week on the water off Point Loma, the San Francisco-based challengers will close their San Diego Bay...

    WTF is this?

    So I go down to check on the rental house and this is chained up outside of it. Any of you San Diego anarchists have any idea whose boat this is? Or what it is? Looks like an unfinished 18, but is in super rugged shape. Here is a link to the other shots I took of it. Lemme know.

    DOGzilla on NBC SD last night

    NBC SD had a great piece on the tri on the late news last night. Amazing aerial footage of the DOG in action (the first I've seen... ever Pix cannot do this thing justice). They interviewed TE for the piece. Anyone else see it?

    Mules - Trailer Movers

    I've been researching different mules for our club and find a huge variance in quality and prices on these things. I've looked into a ton of options, from gas to electric already and seem to have exhausted google in the process. Gotten a ton of specs and prices so far, but need real knowledge...

    Does anyone know about how much the duty will be for this boat as it is imported into the US? I've heard/seen things that range from 1.5% to upwards of 6% of the purchase price. If the boat is FOB Long Beach (the likely port for this kind of thing I'd guess), is the duty included in those...
