Looks very similar to a Beale 780 at our club but bigger obviously .

will the name be “hula girl “ by any chance ! 

could be, apparently the owner could show Seymour a thing or two on the dance floor

For the keen Rum racers here, the question is who will prevail : The new team of Trusty Racing on the reconfigured Ellisunk or the brand new Island Girl next spring we will know -they both have potential.

I believe Greg may have drawn a larger version of that other chine boat at Daves

Yeah a 7m version and there’s a keeler coming too but a different beast altogether

A friend and I back flushed the raw water system, including sail drive, with Barnacle Buster.

Engine has been in the boat for 32 months - done 196 hrs

Removed the impellor, strainer and hooked up a pump to the exit side of the heat exchanger.

First up we back flushed it for 5mins with fresh water to check for leaks/spillage in the pump before adding the BB - not much stuff came out, a couple of tiny bits of stringy seaweed type stuff less than 1mm dia the water was completely clear.

Once we were sure we had no leaks we added the barnacle buster at a ratio of 1:4...

WOW, the amount of "life" that came out of the system was phenomenal, green, black, large chunks small chunks particles easily 2mm+ in size...

Went sailing yesterday after a long refit (too blinking long). Have a five other short vids from yesterday, so if interested just click thru on my YT channel and you will find them - nothing too exciting, no LaVegebond bikinis or anything as such!

Nice!  Are the multiple lines to the leach so you can tune the shape of the foil?

Hey aard, yeah pretty much - they called luff and yard hauling 'parrels'

They basically pull the sail tighter and pull the whole of sail in closer to the mast, if that makes sense
