bad dog Posted March 20, 2010 Report Share Posted March 20, 2010 I have owned PT, Stingray, Catapult, others I can't recall. I sail a very old A Class - 20 years actually, it's a Mk4 of sorts but in some ways is also a Mk3 - it was ahead of its time in 1990. Not at all competitive at a national or state level, although it can hold its own upwind in light conditions. But do I enjoy it? - oh yes - ooooh yes. I still grin like Cheshire. So far it's cost me about $6k with 2nd had carbon mast. Forget aluminium - you won't easily right it. If the platform is sound and lightish, you can put a C rig and newish sails on it for less than $4k. Trapezing is great for maintaining flexibility in my old bones - I look on it as strategic pilates. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
