The Boat is in Texas, or was sold to someone in Texas. Mast had to be shipped from Artemis Racing in Alameda. I had to package the mast for the new owner prior to shipping.


Got a great tour of the Facility there. Got to inspect an AC-45T see all the wings and the whole compound. Big Blue is still there too.

Big Blue... What do you do with a $100million boat that sailed something like 6 races? Not like you can ship it to St. Martin and have the tourists take it for a joy ride.

Costs more to move everything than to keep paying the rent.

R.E. the Flying Phantom, here's a video I just found from about 3 weeks ago, of a Phantom putting the hurt on a Nacra F20:

Not only were they faster but it looked like they were pointing higher as well.

I wouldn't use that to compare pointing angle...the Nacra20 looks pretty badly trimmed for most of that video - the Nacra main is carrying a good deal of twist and even luffs at one point. It's possible that they were overpowered or maybe footing to try and achieve a more stable flight.

Behind these exiting vid, you find several others like the one below:



You see two super-enthousiastic Dutch friends buying a Flying Phantom and testing it for the first time.
Look at their gleaming eyes. It's a marvellous boys-with-new-toys happening.

And it's step-up and go. No problem in flying for the first time. Is it that easy?

But I still wonder where in Holland you can sail with such a cat.... IJsselmeer?

I love the Zebra boat, but how did they get the stripes onto the sails, without adding a whole bunch of extra plastic up there?

It's probably less than 2 lbs for the sail assuming they did it in vinyl. Applying it like that, well....that's another question entirely. I pity the fool.

Added weight takes a pretty good justification, looking cool ain't it


I'm boatless.

Congrats to the new owner it looks nice foiling in the Texas waters. Glad your shipment arrived intact from California.

I don't know the person. Mr. Hearn knew him somehow. Looks like Tomko is the lucky new owner. I'm disappointed someone in CRAW didn't buy it, I wanted a ride on it.

Wow, Looks great.
I've sailed there in the past as much or even more than John has- Galveston Bay.

Looks very stable-
Now the real question is:

Will he put it in the GT300 in June?
I'm thinking probably not, but who knows?
John?

He's reportedly bringing it to this year's Florida 300 and has stated that the Texas 300 is unlikely due to weeds.

I have it on good authority that the only way to clear fouled blades is the back the boat down - on the N20FCS anyways. I was told "it doesn't really matter, when you're miles ahead, you can stop for a minute and back down to get rid of the weeds"
