Looking into I14's

Post by tburd678 » Mon Jul 30, 2007 9:28 pm

I'm looking at buying an I14, I was wondering how hard or easy it is to move into the class. I'm based in new england, mostly I was wondering what the fleet is like in the area. The boat seems to present a problem unto itself, I'm looking at a few, but I don't know about how to tell what's race legal and what I would need to change on a boat I bought. Lastly, would an old boat be competitive? It looks to me that with new technology coming around I would be pressed to keep up, both sailing-wise and financially. Thanks for any tips or help you can offer, I'd love to try to make the jump into the boat.

as for I-14 help, I'm new as well and have been rebuilding an OD-14. As for help though, we are building a small but strong fleet here in Newport RI. we sail a good amount and just hosted the CoCo Cup with over 8 I-14's on the line for the weekend. I would encourage you to come meet our fleet and get some first hand knowledge of what to look for to meet your budget and ability to be compeditive.
