| | FX ONE Help?
by silversurfer356 / 01/20/19 08:25 PM 0
First off...thank you to those that assisted me with this boat. I couldn't have prepared this boat with the input from those here.
I figured I'd reach out one more time (being winter here)...I'm looking for anyone that raced an FX ONE that can provide tuning input other than the published Hobie piece. Boat is basically brand new (barn find), non-wings, carbon daggers, latest Hobie EPO rudders, dyneema shrouds with staymasters, spin, main and self-tacking, furling jib. May add a carbon boom and carbon mast if there is suitable replacement for that mast. I'm really looking for tuning specs if someone kept records or has access to such...there is nothing from Hobie of France/Europe. Also, (non-reated), Im selling my Hobie Miracle 20..its on beachcars..nicest one in the USA...anyone...anyone?
| | Supercat 17 main sheet question
by DaleYoung / 01/17/19 01:09 AM 6
I'm in the process of restoring 2 Supercat 17s. I'm seeing 3 different mainsheet options for these boats that changed over a period of time. One is a a track with a car, another was a triangular floating-type of car that ran along a cable, and the 3rd was a fixed main sheet in the middle of the rear cross tube.
Which option is best, and why?
Thanks in advance.

by JeffS / 01/12/19 09:01 AM 0
I'm excited to announce that the 2019-2020 South Australian Nacra Nationals are at my club, Meningie Sailing Club, situated on the Southern end of Lake Albert, near the end of the Murray river. This lake is freshwater, 169 square kilometres and currently has a depth between 1.9 metres and 2.3 metre. To enable the Far North Qld and WA sailors to be home on Christmas Day, the National Association has set the start day for measurement and the first race as Monday 30th of December with the last race on Saturday the 4th of January. There won't be an invitation race but we will have a rescue boat available on Sunday 29th December for boats that want to get out and practice. It is recommended to book your accomodation as soon as possible, for any more info you can PM me or post questions, whohoooooo

Besides the additional price and the cool looking color for Pentex Mylar Laminate are there really any advantages of using this over the Polyester Mylar Laminate for a mainsail?
| | Cunningham
by Leo Ambtman / 12/17/18 03:02 PM 16
I am sailing a Tornado catamaran and have checked by GPS that sailing upwind it is useless to use any cuningham at any windforce (except maybe force 6 and above but than you are in surviving mode). As soon as you use downhaul you will sail so much lower that VMG is worse. The cunningham will distort the main sail too much. Any comment?
| | Prindle Gen II Rudders - Setting Rake
by Ventucky Red / 11/26/18 06:13 PM 10
Anyone remember setting these up for a 19 or an 18-2?
Is setting the rake for the newer style Prindle rudders the same for the older ones... I was playing with it this weekend and it seems almost impossible to get the leading edge about 1/2" aft of the transom which is a good starting point for the old style per the Prindle Owners Guide And I do have the extend gudgeon.
These are the ones I am referring to

Hi! I'm new here. Didn't even know where to post this. I'm looking at a 84' Supercat 17 for sale. It has a dinged mast. May need some parts. Tried for a week to contact Aquarius to no avail. Are they still in business?
Thanks in advance!
