Whadda have planned for your boat now that the days are getting a little longer and in some places a little warmer.

Me, will be tearing mine down these next few weeks, cleaning, and reassembling with hopefully not too many new parts...

The skipper needs shoulder repair. That should eat up most of the spring and into the summer.

I've recently acquired this Supercat 20 with extended bows and sterns, that needs a bit of cosmetic work. Some funky paint to strip/sand, a few dings to repair, and some minor fairing to get her ready for a shiny new paint job in the fleet colors.

Dave Austin modified the boat for use on SF Bay, which he claims worked well with the longer, finer bows. He's since graduated to an F31R, and now an Outremere 55.

My plan is to rig her with the std(33') mast, new Glaser main, self tacking blade, and an F18 spin, and use her for solo work in light and medium air, and as the high wind machine when prudence dictates that Brad and I put away Lunatic Fringe(ARC22).

So a few happy hours ahead in the cave, messing around with boat(s).

Dave

Dave and I think a lot alike! I took my Supercat20 and did a total refit on it. Started with replacing the bulkheads at the bow tangs, the sprayed it with a fresh coat of paint. Got rid of the telescoping beams and made solid beams. Thanks to Bacho on here for doing the machine work for me. Added a monster self tacker and tramp from Aquarius, spin pole with a custom SNU and large spin. Also have a Techora square top main and jib coming from Randy Smyth. Hopefully she is back in the water in March!!

My boat gets some new strings and one new rag, and maybe it will get a bath sooner or later.

I'm getting a decal.

And trying to figure out how to open the akas up while on the trailer so I can polish the hull(s). They hit the tire fender frown

Would be so much easier than lifting the boat off the trailer and setting it on stands...

Course my anticipated sailing season ENDS mid-june (afternoon thundershowers put a damper on things - we are the lighting capital of the world I think), so I'm really mid-season now. Been out 2-3x per month since October. So far nothing important has broken or shown potential problems...

Haven't tested the screecher yet so who knows... the roller furler may need work.

Mac! Big Red is red no more! Very sweet looking, I need a ride on that monster!

Just got the order on my new F18 and need to get rid of the last one. Sailing as much as possible and still tuning on the old boat.

We simply refuse to accept it's winter, and just go out on the water with a drysuit. As long as there is no ice on the water there is no reason to stop sailing!

They were ice sailing at the club where we keep the boat. So no, no winter sailing for us, unless its in Florida where the boat is currently! That makes it difficult to fix the small list of issues, but most are fiberglass and require a bit of time to fix.

We did damage yet another 5" porthole. Fortunately, Jeff and Brooks have the ultimate solution for the Infusion: http://www.beckson.com/twistdp.html

These work well for the ports. Get the port for training and distance and the flat covers for racing.

Neat, but 90% chance it is in the way of the tiller arms on the Infusion when sailing. Also, the deal with the port holes I listed are the screw in hatch portion has a lip that overlaps the o-ring and deck seam. It is far more watertight than a standard hatch, and is only a 1/4 turn to remove!

and the water comes from below (except rain) to go under that lip. Not sure this will change much, but best of luck. On the 20 we mounted w/ 4200 and if the seal leaked you grease it w/ vaseline or something similar, you should have plenty of that around.
