Hi all,
The past few days I have had some great fast, fun and pretty wild sailing on Lake Michigan and the boat ('84) has preformed very well. I have only taken a little water over the past few days. The starbord takes about a cup or two more than the port hull but they only take a little anyway. For example today, after some serious heavy sailing with light weight (270 lb.) and much hull flying the boat took about 1.5 cups in the port hull and 3 cups in the starbord hull. I read once that this is pretty standard due to the vents on the pylons but I wonder if it is anything to be concerned about? The hulls are in good condition and have a few scratches and whatnot but nothing overly serious. So, I ask you all how much water do your boats take after such a sail?

Thanks,
Orion

Not very much.
I empty the hulls every time I beach her (whether or not I'm taking her out of the water for the day) and usually just have a trickle in the port hull. Starboard seems very tight.
I don't think you have anything to worry about.
Cheers,
Nick
