    what is it?

    Was gonna say I-110, but no keel and appears a bit boxy... International 110s were Ray Hunt-designed 24 footers (hot low aspect keelers) for basic DIY market back in the day...still a slick rig...albeit no loft keel and a stodgy National outfit...I rebuilt one as below and sheathed it in...

    S2 7.9 - Exploding Daggerboard!

    Read through this thread,  We are human and screw up lots more than we least the OP is not a killer...and should check stuff when odd mess happen... Being a sailor, and being that slow should have flagged the OP, but I procrastinate too...  To me, fix per specs, if specific, is the...

    The Front Almost Fell Off....

    Mid and others get it, but the whole mess stimulates.... Love the ditty's meaning, best to take names and smile while avoiding messes, as maskless killers should know.

    Sailing Simplicity

    A phrase in a Front Page comment, got me thinking....the need for advertising revenue notwithstanding...we hear lots about decline in sailors...but who wants the grief, common dodger that I am, who can afford to moor a tri, or even a cat, a rig with a wing, or foiled flyer? I under stand the...
