Re: Newport Show

I had to go on thursday (edit: now seeing that you posted this on thursday, oh well) because this weekend wasn't an option.

I think the sailboats have been pretty consistent over the last couple years and a decent showing in my opinion. Off the top of my head:

Morris, Hunter, Beneteau, Passport, IP, Salona, Hylas, Catalina, Jeanneu, J Boats. And I must be forgetting some (there were some one-offs, and day sailors out of the water too).

I thought the Salona 33 with the stainless steel structure was pretty interesting (not sure if I think it's positive or not but definitely interesting).

Made it onto the big Princess, 72' I think. Fun stuff.

Re: Newport Show

Thinking of going sunday

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
