    Seppo was a new one on me. According to the interwebs yank rhymes with septic tank, shortened to seppo...because we are full of shit 😂.

    Intro to me and hopefully advice on a new dinghy

    I am also 6'4" 215 and have a Weta and a Sunfish (much like a rocket). I enjoy them both!

    Seawind/Corsair Marine "accidentally" destroyed their C37 molds

    I'm glad people buy new boats, so there is eventually a used boat market, but I would never buy new, money aside. Too many stories like this. It shocks me that a company as well known as Corsair would wait months to inform a customer that they are not getting their boat, and then only at the...

    Genoa Size Matters

    I think the SA/D of 17.4 is computed with a 100%, so he wouldn't be in peril of dropping to 15 unless he went smaller than that.

    2 lithiums instead of 1? SOK batteries?

    This is a sometime in the future project for me. I have read that the steady draw from your alternator should be significantly less than it's rating - like< 50%. For those of you that have done this, is that true? I am also curious if there are any problems associated with having you shore...

    2 lithiums instead of 1? SOK batteries?

    I will be interested to see what you come up with. SOK batteries come in metal cases and plastic cases (what they call marine grade). A quick search didn't show a 100 AH in a plastic box.

    I Want to Go Fast and Party Too (Maine Cat 22)

    Hey Patmo, Pretty sure I just saw your boat on Taylor's Creek in a BeauCoast commercial.  You are famous!

    Schionning G Force 1400- Wahoo

    Great video and impressive performance!  The path to the foredeck seems a little precarious with the curved decks.  Do you find this to be an issue for your crew?

    Suggestions for Replacement for Hobie 14

    Here's the Governor's Cup a couple years ago with my daughter.  Probably the best Father's Day I ever had.

    Suggestions for Replacement for Hobie 14

    I would put a Weta on your list.  The carbon fiber mast is pretty light, and they (at least used to) offer a hinged mast step to make it even easier to step.  I have had a blast on it two up with my daughter and race it solo.  I have seen some lately for around $6k on up.  New has gotten pretty...

    I think the win was mostly a result of a well executed start.  It just wasn't much to watch after that.  Great season for Australia.  Looking forward to pulling for Japan and Canada next season!

    Selling a sailboat when you don't know how to sail..

    100% If I were in your situation, I would get a broker.   When I bought my last boat, he handled everything for the seller.  As the buyer, I hired a surveyor and paid for a short haul.  The broker showed the boat and drove it during the trip to the haulout (very short trip) and on the test sail...
