Re: cored vs solid fiberglass hulls

Hi fellow boater

It seems to me that wet balsa cored hulls is like wooden homes being
Gobbled up by termites

On the outside the house looks good and strong until one
Day...... OH s...£#%¥@!

SC.. just ignore him (he has a Catalina God will forgive him...he allways does....)...tell him you have a close relative that is an extraordinaire good looking sailor, that has a very very good looking exquisite fast boat but he is in Europe now with his boat...and you can have a ride anytime you want....

If he asks, I'll confirm.....OK???

Hey its all sail area versus displacement, while Catalinas have some beef, they also usually have some mast...I would think that Buzzards bay is a good venue for your SC 31, you must enjoy the afternoon South-Westerlies that blow so often, with gusto.

That's cool, we'll have to call you Giu the Tool Man (here's a reference in case this joke is too parochial Tim Taylor (fictional character) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) , but no drilling in the hull, and definitely no hammers...
by the way, what's with a French boom? Would you buy a Citroen? The guys at Selden Seldén Mast AB could have taken care of you...A French boom - that will be slow - it'll only work 32 hours a week..

southerncross31 Someday G, i'm going to sail over there and race you. I know i could win. Hull/displacment ratios won't matter....i am putting this special paint on the hull thats going to make my boat way faster! I have created a revolutionary electric/garden hose drive that runs on AAA batteries and completely recharges itself whenever i fart!
