It has been like that for months, I love that site and as we are restoring a Formosa 51, we are really missing the vast knowledge that was there.

Re: Force 50/Formosa 51 forum?

Hi F51 and Ismith8275,
I can't find any information on the Force50.org site other than a post by VirtualVagabond saying other members are in the process of reviving the site. I miss the site alot. It's members provided great information and advice that I used during my work on the Formosa 51.

Re: Force 50/Formosa 51 Forum

Hey Formosa fans. Yes, I'm unable to locate the Force 50/Formosa Owners site, and I have a very important (to me) question:
What is the weight of my 51' Formosa aft Cockpit sailboat, vintage 1979. I'm in Cartagena, Colombia and trying to get hauled out, and my fed doc says 33 net tons, 37 gross. Another Formosa 51 owners here says 'NO WAY, his is only 20 tons? What's the skinny please, anyone?

The weight listed for my 1979 aft cockpit is 52,000 lbs. Last time TRUTHSAYER was hauled out the Travellift scale showed 53,000 lbs.
