    I can’t decide if this is ugly-cool, or just ugly.    Anyone recognize the design?

    Nacra F18?

    Looking for insight in the Nacra F18. Not the Infusion.  The old design that predates that.  There’s one for sale near me, and I’m wondering if it’s worth picking up as fun boat to blast around on.     I’m interested in views on how easy/hard it is to sail one- or two-up. Not planning to race...

    Anyone know this boat?

    I saw this 16’ custom dinghy on Facebook.  Being custom, it’s hard to tell anything about it. But I’m always surprised at the depth of knowledge and experience of the collective SA mind.    The boat is in Connecticut, so maybe it has New England origins.

    Save THIS Cal 40

    Hey folks, Here's another Cal 40 in need of some love. The boat was in Puerto Rico until 2006, then was sailed to Maine. It's been on the hard since then. According to the owner, it "needs a lot of work" to the hull, deck, and bulkheads. Apparently, it fell on its side during Hurricane...

    Saw this and figured the PNW contingent would know something about the boat. It's a double ended, so I'd expect Kim to weigh in on it. Bob too.

    Injected epoxy fender washer or....

    My daughter and I were sailing the families mid 60s vintage sunfish in nuking conditions and pulled the bronze halyard turning block out of the deck. The boat is in beautiful shape and I don't really want to cut open the deck and add an inspection port to thru-fasten the block with bolts nuts...
