  1. Hi Dave, No mention of any entry fee on the KBSC site or the flyer - is there one??
  2. Tony - just thought of something - if i'm aiming for say a 15mm thick c/board, what sort of thickness should the 'core' be, and should it also be narrower to allow for leading edge layers and trailing edge thickness? I also have the option to build in balsa with kevlar and glass (or carbon) - any opinion?
  3. Thanks for the pics - I wonder why they went to all solid for the later ones?? BTW the email for Darryl bounces, but the ph# is still current.
  4. Hi Darryl, I understand you and your son designed and built these little rippers. How do the OEM boards compare with "The trend with most cats has been in using high aspect boards, say 150mm wide x 15mm thick, maybe 500mm protruding through hull." as Tony has mentioned (i know he's a PT sailor, and a pretty active one at that). Originals were about 30.5cm - is any pointing ability lost with narrower boards?
  5. Ok, - yeah yeah, I know seasons already started, but new baby has delayed getting the other baby out of the carport. The other baby is a Alpha Omega 4.3 with the big (13.5 m2) cat rig. My problem is this: The previous owner was a recreational shallow lake sailer and has replaced the original boards with a lovely looking('glass over cedar and ash), but somewhat useless(for an AO) set of boards from a Paper Tiger - (hull depth at slots is much greater on the AO compared to a PT). Also - the rudders have been replaced by what looks like a set of shortened Hobie14 rudders (blunt, heavy and sho
