looks like a decent hull. however, there are a few quirks with the pit setup (sans seats, i've already hashed that one out...) i would like to see changed if we got the boat (which isnt happening anyway... but hey, this is SA!).

On the 109 the cam cleats for the jib leads were lead at a shallow enough angle that they could be lead to the windward primary to trim them in some. Whether or not thats necessary or not can be debated, but it was useful for me at least...

I also would have though that, given the fact that they're using a #3 anyway, that the boat would be designed for cross sheeting.

Its good to see that the owner sprang for the horizontal RF battens. not only do they not look retarded, but they make the bow's life sooo much easier. I've sailed on three boats in four regattas that used those damn vertical battens, and only on one of those regattas was i not doing peels or jib changes between races. Otherwise, they were just a flying pain in the ass. So, props to the owner/sail maker.

edit: oh, and if anyone from jboats reads this... next time you launch a boat, give me a shout and i'll take the damn pictures for you. and edit them for web usage for you. i work cheap...

Santa Cruz 37 is the first thing that pops to mind. Nice lines... needs polars. Is the foot of the main supposed to be that loose or was the mast shorter then expected?

What does mast height have to do with foot length? I'd like to see some pic's of the thing out of the water. Oh, and..........................what's it rate?

Wanna bet that the 111 will sail circles around the Santa Cruz 37?

The 111 has a much narrower stern, and hence a lot less wetted surface. The only conditions that maybe the Santa Cruz could keep up would be broad reaching in over 20 knots.

you see..., the thing about JBoats is that they are building boats for people who actually buy boats, and not for their "friends", who come along for the occasional ride, and then crap on the boats on internet forums.
