knobblyoldjimbo - You can do these sort of things when you make the gear!

I won't be bringing the pole to Toukley - thats just fun for me on the lake when I take the 2yo & 5yo out.

I'll sail Super Sloop and see how it goes. The sail area is actually 0.1m2 less than the stock measurements, but the efficiency should be way up. We'll see...

One thing for sure, is that it makes the boat look somewhat modern, and might offset me racing a MkI (that cost me a case of beer) and not a $10000 foamie. ;)

Exactly Darcy. And with several hundred MkI and MkIIs floating around eBay, Trading Post, Gumtree and local rags, all for bargain prices, you would think the class would be able to get a critical mass back if it had some kerb appeal to the kids. $1200 for a square head mainsail that doesn't look out of place next to an F18 and the like.

$10' date='000 might get you the hulls and beams, not much else, 2 old GRP Maris gave 4 foamies a lesson in light weather sailing at Budgewoi yesterday, even had H 18s behind them. Well sailed KOJ (AKA James)[/quote']

Yes well "sailed" KOJ especially on the downwind legs............
