Still though, it worked pretty well and we were 8th out of 10 after 5 races.

 

Is that the j70?

From now on I am going to put all my SF posts between quotation marks on account of I am just quoting the tutelary spirit who speaks to me in the space of my mind (mente). Since I got the toxins out of my system, I have been able to transcribe his words more accurate.

That's a lot of bodies for a boat like that! I feel crowded in the 80 with 3.

Somehow I am sure this was not meant to be as funny as it is.

Huh? No, it was just the two of us. My usual crew was both injured and out of town.

I can do 3 in the boat for casual sailing in medium wind without much chop, especially if they are smaller girls (3 of me would be pretty cramped). It isn't like drifting around on a 40' cruiser, but we had a good time watching the blue angels during the air show two weekends ago with 3 people, a few beers, and some snacks.

Ohhh, I see. I was thinking that I don't think 3 are even legal for that class.

Although I keep having this irrational desire to buy a bigger boat. Basically I want something with a lot of cockpit space but enough of a cabin that people can throw their bags down there and girls can pee in private (and keep the v-berth pads so there is just enough room to drop anchor and get it on). Should be a fun boat and one that has some one design racing out there *somewhere* (in case I ever want to trailer it to an event), but I am perfectly fine racing on other people's boats for local stuff.

The J70 still seems much too expensive and heavy for what it is...but I keep coming back to the Ultimate 20. Sweet little boat, could easily store on the dry pad and crane launch if I don't want to have bottom paint and pay for wet storage, lots of open cockpit and a decent cabin for that small of a boat.
Saw a few Colgate 26's this weekend too. Would have to keep in the water, but they looked nice. Sportboat lovers find them slow, but they are otherwise pretty ideal daysailing boats and are apparently pretty damn easy to singlehand (even with the chute I guess).

Really is irrational though...If I am not going to race it and only use it to sail with friends...I should just charter a boat a few times a year for less total money than a year of boat ownership. So the next step is to convince one of my friends to buy one instead...that's where the easy to sail Colgate 26 would really shine.

The true secret to boat-ownership happiness right there.

Viper 830? Would be hard to single hand though with that masthead kite.
