    Read your post about not using the main on your 105MC. Would love to own one someday. So you feel you get slammed hard with the low bridge deck going into the wind. And you don't mess with the main - that wild. So you don't feel that the main adds much to speed. Are there times where it's worthwhile. How about light airs?

    I started off racing Speedway Solo at 15, Hitting the fence was a real fear, You could be killed instantly, or be in Hospital for years, with the very real possibility of never walking again. Precautions there, Don't hit the Wall"

    Glad to see other sailors from the dirt track oval! I raced Flat Track and Speedway here in Canada in the 80's and 90's. You had CONCRETE walls on the Australian tracks! At least our Canada tracks had thin plywood, so they would just slow you down as you went through the wall! The BEST fences was when I raced in Sweden, they had cushioned walls.

    Track bikes: Honda CR125, CR250, 450, JAP, JAWA

    Ahoy Brian,
    I've started to look at my anchors, a Bruce and Danforth, both have worked OK. I have a smaller Danforth that I've had for 25 years and is great. Don't know why. Lent it out to others who also said it worked for them. None of my anchors is as good as the modern anchors, which seems to be Rocna as the best. I was wondering about your DIY anchors that you are planning. We have mostly mud and sand bottoms around here.
