We had a good day! Winds were really gusty.... as you come out from behind an island or a point... the wind would hit you.. I think the winds topped 15 at gusts... but mostly stayed below 10... A fun time. Even got a little sunburned!

Flight's delayed ... time to get loaded at an airport bar.

Thanks Chris!!!!!!! Tell Mrs. CK that that was one AWESOME meal!!!
You're very welcome C2. Thanks a bunch for coming out and giving your opinion on the boat. It gives me some things to think about and ideas where I need to concentrate on fixes if/when I buy it.

Ya, I didn't notice it the first time we took it out. It have the 150 which is shot and a 90 or so jib which we didn't take out but if remember right is better. The winds are so light (usually) on the laje that I don't think the smaller jib hardly gets used. The main was in great shape though. One thing the seller DID say is he has a number of other sails and he might swap out the 150 is he has a comparable one.

I really would like to buy it. It's definitely solid. C2 pointed out some projects that should be first like rebedding all the deck hardware and figuring out why we took on water. There is also a leaky window that drips right on the port settee cushion. It also will like need a re-wire. It did sail great though. We were heeled at about 20 degrees with only the slightest bit of weather helm.

Me too. We had such a blast today. We couldn't splash the rail but we got it up to about 30-35 degrees heel at one point

I actually had to "correct" the pics above because I had the camera (cellphone) tilted.

Just saw this post from a while back. No RV for me. I have my hand full already.

Besides, how do you throw down a BFS in an RV?

That is easy - a really good RV has two full length awnings. In a good blow - you can have a great BFS as in "Bitchin Fricking Scenario"...

Remember an RV is just a mobile home that is designed to be towed behind a bicycle - err a Prius - err a 4 wheel something...

Couple 360 square feet of awning (sunbrella!) in adverse wind conditions... it becomes "I have wings"...

Just food for thought...

Ck and C2,

Nice to see someone getting some BFS in around here (borrowed boat + off season sailing + fun sailnetters +10 to 15 knots = BFS).

As MrWuffles said, don't count us out. We're watching the sun getting higher and the days getting longer. Soon, very soon.
