Those who had previously weighed their boats (in this thread), could you please give this equation a try? This is fascinating! Edit: Oh boy, I forgot I "weighed in" on this up above - that means me too! Mine will be on a dolly only... Aug-06-19 15:55:02

Hi everyone. We're having a Force 5 regatta this coming weekend at Lake Lemon. I know many of you just came for the North Americans, but we want to build this regatta up so it becomes a "regatta circuit building block".... Jun-16-19 08:38:02

Probably a safe bet. Lots of people use Awlgrip for spars, but again, the extreme mast bend thing. Good ol' rattle-can Rustoleum is a low-cost risk factor. :) Apr-22-19 06:58:08

I have a mast and boom that I want to refinish. Currently it has PPG brand epoxy automotive paint on it that has gotten scuffed up a bit. It has held up well and just repainting is certainly an option. I was thinking about powder coating it... Apr-20-19 07:41:26

Talk abut a great event. We had 17 Force 5s on the starting line this weekend. Two days of perfect wind and the usual shifts to keep it interesting. Some of the closest racing of the year. Also, as usual the best party of the year! Sep-24-18 13:05:56
