The Scarab 18 looks more like what I'm looking for in a tri. It just scares me a bit that it will be too complicated and time consuming to build. I want something I can build in 3-6 months,...

I took a look at it. I think it's a bit too small. Especially for 4 people. I'm not opposed to a folding tri, I just think it gets a bit more complicated to build and the windrider 17 doesn't...

If you have any specific questions please feel free to ask. My lazy jacks are really simple. Just rope. I added a regular dock type cleat (not sure the correct term) about 8' up the front of the...

I have had a venture 17 for a couple years now.

It's been a love hate relationship. I love the size and how easy it is to rig and sail. I love the low price and how reasonable new equipment...

With respect to bunk imprints, it is my opinion that the bunks are too short for the boat. I've put longer bunks on the trailer and, while I'm sure there are some weaker spots from the bunks, there...

Could this design be modified to make a nice daysailer? SB 18

I'm kicking around the idea of building a new hull for a daysailer. I currently have a Venture 17. It actually does OK for what I need, but it's woefully slow and simply does not like to go upwind....

A track will likely be required to get a proper sheeting angle. Would it work to have, say 4 eye-straps along the rail rather than a full track? I realize I would be left with only 4 positions,...

For my use, I'm sure I can just have a single groove or hank on. I don't think it's likely I'd change headsail other than put up an asym or something if the wind is really light.



I like the...

The reason I'd want the furler is mainly to pull down some sail quickly. The sail is easy to put up. The boat is pretty small with only about 15ft of waterline it bobs a lot in choppy weather. ...

I'm with you. There currently is no track set up. Just a cleat on each side for the jib. It's a really basic setup. I'm not opposed to adding a track, but I'm not sure how much $ to put into an...

Thanks for the advice. Another question. What makes the J measurement on this large? I know what the J measurement is, but I'm not sure why it's large in this case. Is that meaning it's large...

What Head Sail to Buy (Genoa, drifter, or Asym)

Hi,

Newb here. Hope this is the correct place to ask. If not mods please move to the correct forum.

Not new to sailing, but not a pro by any stretch. I've had a Laser and a Hobie cat as...
