Hello. This is my first post. I'm not a Force 5 racer, but rather an 8-10 time a summer enthusiast. I say this because I'm not worried about making some changes and disqualifying myself from any racing possibility. My goal is to make... May-08-19 11:50:13

Chris, that Sunbird cockpit looks like a bathtub that wishes it could fly. But it is all about a boat that can take on any conditions for hours and several days, that you can be relatively comfortable in, that can be pushed off the beach!... Jan-31-19 08:04:15

Hi John. One of the two happiest days of your life. I hope that when we next meet, we'll have time for a chat and a drink and talk about the way things should be. Thanks for your vision, your encouragement and sharing some of your wisdom. Tony Dec-14-18 01:17:15
