Re: One Design 14 Penny ReLaunch

Keep an eye out on your national I14 facebook page, many boats pop up on them. There are I14 facebook pages for most regions.

Re: Future of the Forum

I like the forum and facebook. Facebook is good for quickly finding out what is going on, the forum is great for digging up info on rigging setups and builds etc.

Can the forum be set up to one of the ones that links in with Facebook?

Re: AUS 353 for sale

Harry,

Bring it to the AIR regatta on the March long weekend, sail it & have a for sale sign on it. You might get lucky.

Re: kite throat arch protection?

There's a heap of dealers in the US,

http://www.protect-tapes.com/stores/stores

maybe one of them will sell you just what you need instead of a whole roll or pack. It would be much cheeper to buy it that way.

Hope this helps.

Re: kite throat arch protection?

It has been on my boat for 2 seasons now. It is also good in centre board slots and over any corners that rope rubs. There is a fair bit in there of different widths, lengths and thicknesses. I'm sure you could find it cheeper locally, we tend to pay a premium for anything here in Australia.
