Here, AS (less often now thanks to a certain Large Ego) and a NZ Classic forum are the only places you'll find me.

Although I value the opinions of a respected few here very highly, for any real issues I tend to ask a couple of shipwrights I know.

Yep, I remember her.. and I remember how uncomfortable they all looked without a targa-top to protect them from the hail! Serious hard-core, that lot.

You sayin' we might have come third? Hmm.. maybe. There's always next year - in Bent's new boat.
I reckon that without the furler problem we had last year we would have done 'em, at least on the water. Supposedly race is moving to later in the year as of 2013 so we may turn up ourselves. The inner forestay is now easily removed and stowed and we are about to fit a new stemhead fitting which will incorporate a removeable sprit for the assy. May even put the assy onto a furler ... waiting for advise from rigger on that.

The Woodenboat fella btw was even named Cameron and spoke about two boats, one of them a trailer sailor. I just figured ..... wrongly as it appears.
