We currently have ten boats confirmed for the regatta. If you plan on attending then please let us know. The goal is to push past our 12 boat mark from last year, and I think that shouldn't be a problem. Also, feel free to come in early... Yesterday 07:41:54

I always sail on the other side of the course, just to be safe. But seriously, deductibles are for every claim these days, not just once annually. What a racket! Makes me mad as hell. May-19-15 13:10:30

I think Jack Evans lives in Cabot, AR. His brother-in-law who worked at AMF, Bob Murphy, died in 2013 and he is listed in the obit. May-13-15 10:36:41

Truly the more boats that are weighed on the same system, the better the true (understanding) data will be. Everyone at the Hospice this year should use your set up to build the true average? Hope to be there again... May-13-15 10:22:46

Just wondering where the photos were taken? Nice Grassy beach area in the photo (all the F5's lined up), is that near the camp ground? or sailing club or a launch area? Where on the pond is that? May-13-15 10:18:30

^^ pretty much my sentiment though I knew nothing about anything except the sunfish. When my first hull came available for free, I was all over it, just because it was a sailboat Apr-29-15 18:18:19
