I think BLT has that Munchausen By Proxy Syndrome, but with his boat instead of a kid. He breaks it for the attention!

Actually, the goose neck came out of the mast. Something must have gone haywire with the rivets. Probably one size too small. No races until feb at this moment in time. My sons already are figureing out how to weld the holes close, a plate, and new rivets, this time the correct size diam etc etc..........

At least it was NOT the actual boom this time! oh yeah, it was djodenda's fault, he told me on my face book to take a picture of the boom incase we broke it! so its his fault, that is my story, and I'm sticking to it! LOLOLOL

Crazy day, from dead calms to over 20 into the upper 20's in minutes, then back to a calm in minutes. then it went from south winds at 15 to a north wind at 15 in less than 5 min too! wild day, came home very tired needless to say!

GREAT sail this afternoon. Only blowing 10 or so, but man it was nice! We're really starting to dial in on the sail trim a bit. There we were smoking a couple of other boats on a reach. Nice.

I did notice that you have to be careful at what you point you yell "Eat my wake losers!". Because even though you've overtaken them, it still takes about twenty minutes to get out of throwing range of their boat.

Anyone know how to get egg off old gel coat? I mean, lots of it?

Not sure if it was that one, or the other one, or both, or if it was the 3rd crew brian! The rivets that I used to fix the last literal boom break back in March/April pulled right out. Will probably weld the holes in the mast, ie fill them, then put a plate on the outside. and get the proper rivet gun to put in the next size larger rivets. Along with making sure the rivots are long enough to go thru the mast and make a reasonable backing so it will not pull out.
