That is a good point. I have 2 boats available. They are not the $500 variety so you won't have any excuses. We have some pretty beat up boats too if you are looking for a little extra challenge ;) Have beer... have food... have... Yesterday 10:02:49

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

Brian, Think about the risk of having too much fun in a single week. You have to admit this is very scary for sure! Nov-01-18 08:50:47

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

Man that looked cool right up to the point where the drone pilot lost track of those still racing, or flying away from the windward mark right when everyone was getting there. But, it shows such potential! I'm loving the fact that drones... Aug-15-18 17:00:37

Been wearing these for several years now on many a wet foredeck. I think they are my favorite boat shoe to date.....and I have tried several kinds. They are not perfect but, they dry quick, grip pretty well and are durable. Oh... and less... Aug-07-18 16:05:58

What Rob is looking at is just long enough to fit the Force 5 and with it being aluminum he will still only be a single axle and be able to tow it with his current vehicle. Jul-09-18 09:20:24

Brian, The Championship is for sailors who have placed in the top 5 in a major regatta. If you haven't you fall into the Challenger. This doesn't keep you from winning a top 5, it just means you will be eligible for the Challenger... May-08-18 04:20:49

This regatta was a lot of fun last year. Great sailing conditions. Sometimes pretty wild, but that's where the fun is found! :D Apr-17-18 06:20:59
