If I only had a man-cave.... or garage-mahal...

what could only pass for a man cave at my house is the trunk of the civic.... which I may have to live in when momma finds out I'm trying to get a boat (back to that $$$ for boat = $$$ for momma)

my evil master plan is to have something by T-winds, although it may not be race ready by then (or ever)

That does look to be a good deal, and relatively close. The DNA on that site kinda gives me a chubber, but the 4k miles of driving, 58hrs behind the wheel, $900 in fuel, and $1600 worth of wear and tear on my pickup doesn't really tickle my happy bits. I see Skip's EVO on there too, he's fairly close to me, and I know some of the history with that boat as well.

I'm not really looking for a boat to race, though I'm sure it'll happen. I need something I can setup and get into the water in a reasonable amount of time. If I spend an hour getting to and from the lake, and hour to setup, and an hour to tear down, I can get maybe an hour sail in during the week. Its just not worth it to me having a 3:1 ratio of hassle to enjoyment. Spending <$10k on a boat probably makes the most sense, though I do love the newest in widgetry out there. It's looking like the foiling stuff is getting more stable, and is definitely looking doable under the current rule set.


I'm boatless.

The best deal on the USACA site is the 2010 Tool @ $14k. It has the latest generation "bendy" mast and a set of Marstrom curved foils.

If a man is to be obsessed by something.... I suppose a boat is as good as anything... perhaps a bit better than most.
