sailhog BF,

bestfriend I can't, cause I am not there. But what I do remember is that she was modified by the last owner with a staysail and an additional set of tracks aft, next to the cockpit. She is a little bulbous around the middle "fat" as some would say, but not as much as the IOR boats. Modified keel with a skeg rudder, I believe. Not sure, but the genny we had up looked like a 130%. The traveler is full width on the cockpit bridge. The wheel has been moved forward and sits right behind the traveler, which I like a lot because the sheet is right there and I can keep it in my hand. The winches are behind you, which I don't like as much. In the original configuration, they would be right next to you, like a Dehler. No backstay adjuster.

Giulietta and the backstay adjuster too, please
03-05-2008 06:18 PM
Giulietta The boat seemed to want to move and was peppy...

Have photos of the underside? and complete rig? Can I see the rudder? can you show a photo of the main traveler and genoa tracks? Can you show where the stay attaches at the mast? Can you take a photo of the mast from the base looking up? can you show me the boomjack?
Thanks

George, Simon is in Berkeley Marina, They have a cruise out to Ballena Bay this weekend. You may run into each other (literally!) at the mouth of the estuary.

Dog, It was on a reach, doing 7.6 knots against a 2 knot current, that we were keeping up with the Catamaran(he was sheeted in more than us though). Heading south, during the first part of the Floyd music, was crossing the slot. We were close hauled there. But as you sail closer to the City and the Bay bridge, the wind changes and begins to wrap around from the side and behind. We did about 6.6 knots through the slot and then it dropped a bit when we got close to the Bay bridge. Winds gusted up to about 17 knots (in the slot)for a while. We then eased the sheets out, flattened the boat out, and picked up speed to 7 and over, as the wind was off the beam. At that point we were keeping up with the Cat. Then, you can see when she got to the Bridge, they put up the spinnaker, and that was all she wrote. I was pretty surprised at how well the 22k lb Ericson did.

GeorgeB Nothing like sailing mid week in the Bay! Simon, what marina do you sail out of? Our C34, Freya, is docked down the Estuary on the Alameda side. We are sailing over to StFYC this Saturday for a function so perhaps we’ll see you out there? Freya is a Catalina 34 sail number 1476 and beware, Catalina’s are much faster than you may think!
