Re: Spinlock XAS triple clutch x 2

Yes I do.
I would also like to make clear that these clutches have been used for two seasons and show signs of wear accordingly.
They work perfectly, but they are used.

Re: A Catamaran Question

In my 36' x 24' cat, when I get above 10, I'm psyched.
Above 12.5, the boards start humming and life is sweet!...(depending on sea state and heading)

Re: Takacat Catamaran Dinghy

Compared to paddling my paddle board, which is my 99% go to tender, I think it'll do just fine. If it's THAT windy out, I'll stay on my big boat. Or get help with a tow. Or SAIL it-WAY faster than...

Re: baja haha news from latitude 38 today, oct 1. 2014

For reals? $150ish worth of TIP?
On a different note...
If one is to be trailering a boat into Mexico this year, is it better (easier) to get the necessary TIP's before hand, online? Or does that...

Re: Setting the Anchor on a Cat

Yeah. Any cat that anchors off the center of the crossbeam (most) might not want to try my technique.
