Yes, this boat was once USA 1148. Built in 2001. It came to Canada in 2008 and became "The Booby" in 2009. Notable upgrades include:
- bigger foredeck opening for faster kite launch/douse
- improved universals for tiller twist controlled foil
- reinforced racks (stiffer)
- improved running rigging for vang, mainsheet, spin, and traps... very well sorted
- new Glaser sails (2013)

PM me for more details.

Yes. I still have the old Quantum sails. Not sure of the condition of them. The boat is still competitive, coming 4th at the I14 Canadians just this last weekend. Would like to see it continue to race if possible. PM me for more info.

This boat went ten knots faster with the Bieker rig with the Glaser Sails . Anything that says Quantum on it might be good for a paint drop.
This boat is a steal . and race ready...

Did you get a new boat Doug? If so, what did you get?

You guys certainly never seemed to be slowed down by the B3! You were one of the great examples for all those (generally non 14ers) who like to complain that the class is way to expensive because a couple top teams are sailing $50k boats and therefore that's obviously the basic "cost of entry" into the class.

That said, I'm looking forward to seeing just how fast you can go with a newer boat! (assuming and hoping that's the direction you went!). Of course, I'll only be seeing it on the results sheets because I wouldn't be able to keep up no mater what boat I was in!

Two sails in three days! Enjoying myself very much!

He wasn't kidding about the 'flawless' foil adjustment system too...

Also, I can confirm the quantum sails are appropriate for paint mats.
