  1. For an 8.5 multihull that will get cleaned regularly do you see any benefit in going for a harder antifoul and burnishing?
  2. How much of the epoxy market is finished product shipped in and how much is contract manufactured onshore?
  3. TP52 Med Cup boats are nuts, TWS 14 knots, TWA of 36°-38°, Jib lead about 3.2° off centerline r. 9.1 knots boat speed Also that jib likely costs more than my entire boat!
  4. I bought the openwind setup last year for my 8.5 tri, plays nicely delivering AWA and AWS straight into the N2K bus.(they do a 0183 version as well) Unfortunatly the boat is on my driveway being repaired so can't give definitive info for sure how good it is in use, but on the test bench my triton displays (and the vulcan) will do the TWA and TWS calculations.

    Vulcan 7r targets

    I’ve setting up a Vulcan, and I can input target upwind and downwind angles and speeds across the wind range. in the files section there is reference to polar tables. Is it possible to run full polars on this unit, or is this just a holding area for pushing files to a H5000?

  14. Anyone got one lurking in the back of the garage? Buying NOS from overseas will cost me abut the same as bottle of Mt Gay, so figure thats the going rate for a clean one
