I know Ive,mentioned this before. But...it's fast approaching time to launch, and upgrades are being made. I just thought I would double check with the good people of sailnet before I put on new standing rigging that this boat can make the trip.

Assuming the operator is up to the challenge.

I've got the new sails coming. For a 26 foot boat I've got 7.2 oz cloth which I think is heavy for high winds. I'll replace the standing rigging. Most everything else is new. I'm really wanting this boat to be able to withstand 40-60 mph winds if it has to, reefed down to a hanky main. The second reef leaves only about 25% sail area. I'm crazy, I know. On and on about high winds and I'll probably be in nice seas. Like last summer. But I wouldn't mind a repeat of that! I'm just trying to be a Boy Scout and all that. Make the boat up to snuff, then I don't have to be a competent sailor....

But there isn't any information online about the 26. Just a couple basic things. The 27 is supposed to be capable of just about anything. I do have a different design. Maybe not too different?

So can this boat do it or will I be wasting money trying to make a jeep a Ferrari?

(Just tell me what I want to hear and I'll not post for a couple days...)

Thanks. I will do that. Where did you get that picture? I can hardly find any of my boat.

I do have newish lexan drop boards, I think they literally are bulletproof. I could come up with a way to latch the lower. And I will make sure I can latch all the lazerette sand the front hatch tight.
