Eclipse? Dee Smith? I think that was mid ot late 80's though. Oh, I just saw that up thread. Cool. I raced with guys that did a Windjammer in that boat or tried to. They then tried to convert the local Soling fleet to traps instead of hobbles. They failed.Speaking of big skiffs: In the late '90s there was a Santa Cruz-based big open skiff --- on the order of 40 ft as I recall --- that supposedly sunk once near the harbor and once capsized in front of us racing from San Francisco to Santa Cruz. Can't for the life of me think of it's name but would love to learn more about it. Do any of you guys recall?
Yeah. Threads like this are most interesting. The ULDB (and other classic boats) threads that elicit history from the dark recesses of SA’s quickly melting brain trust are quite entertaining.I am not trying to sell it, just letting folks know its for sale in case they want to buy it.
