Hmmmm...so maybe it's a good thing my boat isn't in the water?

I think so..you have the 37-2 right. Its phrf is 132 Not sure what keel Chuck has. His is between 138 and 150 depending. Pretty close.

I gave you the edge as he's a reformed multihull sailor
( all in good fun)

I am willing to be the committee boat, since I can sail back and forth between you in our undersized 35 C&C. BTW my money is on Shawn.
Irwin 38 mk II - not Morgan.

So's my money in a straight up race because I have floppy sails and believe in the 'set them and leave them' trimming school.
Also if he gets there first he can drop anchor and I can raft up to him and save my back/deck from work/mud.

Craigtoo is going to the same place, same time. I actually out PHRF him in his Sabre 34 also. I guarantee I can beat him because he'll be towing a dinghy.

PHRF is for racing, I'm a cruiser. I don't tweak my sail trim every 1.3 seconds on my cruising boat. I relax and enjoy the sail.

Especially, getting back to the original topic - now that the barrier reef has been removed from my hull, prop and shaft.

We are having our bottom done Monday. We have slowed considerably too. Its our third year on Ultima 60 and we coated with the petit stuff on our haul out last summer. I am interested in what the diver finds, as we are still sailing quite fast in the 6+ to 7+ range but under motor barely 5.5

Re: barnacles on prop, shaft

I've been using Propspeed for the last several years, works better than anything else I've ever tried...

However, perhaps this has already been mentioned before or elsewhere, but by far the best solution I've ever found to inhibit growth on running gear of a boat that is sitting, is enclosing it all in a heavy duty black plastic garbage bag, or something similar...

Not convenient for most, I realize, but whenever I know my boat will be sitting for awhile, I put a bag on it... This growth needs some light to flourish, and simply blocking out the light really does seem to do the trick to a significant extent, in my experience...

It's easy to rig the bag with a tagline at the bottom, so that it can be removed without going back in the water... Of course, it goes without saying that if you make this your routine, you definitely want a foolproof 'reminder' tagged to your ignition key, that there's a bag and some light line wrapped around your running gear...:-)

I'm lucky, my prop is quite accessible, I've even been able to get a bag around it without going in the water, using a large fishing net from my floating dock... Of course, those with a prop in an aperture, or a saildrive well forward of the rudder, there's no other option than to dive on it...

Another solution would be to configure a larger form-fitted 'diaper' from a larger tarp, that could led under the boat without going in the water, and be tied off at deck level from each corner... The key would be to make it truly 'form-fitting' to the hull, however, any light getting inside it will defeat its effectiveness to some degree...
