yeah it is pretty tight. i wish they didn't give up on the 20. a couple mods and it could probably hang with the N20s. colored hulls would be freakin sweet too.

That's Jake Sailer's boat, and it was recently painted.

That's Vinnie Armato and Jake Sailor, affectionately known as the 'young punks'. Blue gelcoat from Fiberglass Hawaii. I wanted to see how much it weighed in at the regatta but forgot...they used 2 gallons of gel!!

I got some great photos from the regatta and will post them as soon as I get my camera working again. Seems that salt water and digital cameras don't mix.

I think Yellow would look cool. I saw a Tiger that was yellow online somewhere a while back. 2 lbs of paint, I would just have to forget hitting Dunkin' Donuts before every race to make up for it......

Colored gel weighs ~ 10 pounds per gallon or roughly another 20 pounds.

From the weather reviews don't think being at minimum weight, boat OR crew, was of any advantage.

First off: That guy is frackin' crazy.
Second: Is that sail something other than white? Its cool as hell, but looks grey in the pics.

You're right, Chris, the sail is gray, but more of a smoke color really. Jeremy should know the details since it's got his shop's name on it - Surf City Racing.

So thats a color I could buy if I wanted to or is it custom? Skipshot, you have me at a disadvantage.
