    That's good to hear that the customers are happy.   We have our truck arriving on or around May 24th from West Coast Sailing.  Looking forward to checking out the Ovington ILCAs!

    It will be fun to see.  They show TackleShack as getting a container of them in the near future.

    I don't care what they have to say about some semantics.  A boat builder is a boat builder (I've been one) even if they have to build to a very strict build tolerance which is a good thing.   I for one do not care for all of the back and forth.  I spent 1hour 15minutes on a Notice of Race zoom...

    Some of my favorite memories was Can Am Sailcraft in Cambridge, MA., I think it was Skip Whyte's shop.  Tons of windsurfing gear but in the second room were sunfish and Lasers stacked on their transoms.  So impressive.  As a kid, it was heaven.  My brother got a new sunfish from there and my...

    Will do!  I'm sure that I'll be helping to unload them from the trailer and one of the owners isn't around town yet so I'll be the custodian and can look it over. Should I start a whole new thread, "Ovington ILCAs" ;)

    I'm tempted by the Ovington ILCA with the carbon package, no prep.  I like working on my own boat anyways so doing the prep including adding sail numbers is hardly an issue.  That one is $7,995.  If I sell my UFO and my 2009 Laser then I'd do this I think.  Not sure though...my 2009 is just...

    Robbie, First of all congrats on the VXOne regatta.  It looks like you got the top prize. Second, have you reached out to Zim to let them know what you think?  All of us should be of the frame of mind to help a boat company to improve its product as it benefits all of us.  Maybe it's already...

    I can't say that I have the full story but saying that it's ILCA's fault and not a business issue of LPE's is not correct.  There's a reason that there's no more Seitech dollies which LPE bought.  It has very little to do with the ILCA, it is true in fact that LPE was not paying their suppliers...

    Ovingtons are here.  Two dealers have them, West Coast Sailing and I forget the other.  We have one or two Ovingtons joining our fleet in a few weeks when they get delivered on a truck with some new RS Teras for our program.

    It's the same company, isn't it?  The production is done in China and the sales office in RI, correct?  Some production stateside I think. There are no more territories for ILCAs I've heard so you have Ovington and Zim ILCAs already coming into the US and I think it's Performance out of...
