    I've given some thought about doing a qualifier from the PNW. It's not so bad. Get yourself up to Neah Bay, then 200nm out, 200nm back. Pick a reasonable weather window, which shouldn't be too...

    Pac Cup 2016 was the windiest year for Pac Cup on record and I know of two boats that used their storm jibs. We were one of those boats. We used it as a spinnaker staysail (3300 pound 28 footer). ...

    Maybe it would be beneficial for the return leg? In that case, I'd concede a storm jib should be on the boat.

    I don't want to suggest deviating away from the Safety First principles, but realistically, going to Hawaii, is there really a need to go upwind in conditions that warrant a storm jib on a heavy...

    You may be overthinking this one. I see two real possibilities. First, if you are serious about SHTP in 2018 then you WILL be at the boat regularly and a little rain water in between visits won't...

    Not bad from my view. We raced against DE to Hawaii this summer. Seems like a great boat and O30s have a great history going to Hawaii.

    I agree with Chris. I'd much prefer a rudder post than a transom hung rudder, primarily because your autopilot options are much better (operationally and longevity) if you have a rudder post where...

    Have you priced CCI Composites in Canada? They built ours. It's fabulous. We could keep racing with it and with the Canadian exchange rate it won't be 1/3rd the cost of your boat.

    Rudders, autopilots, vang attachments, and goosenecks are all likely failure points. That's the stuff that is constantly moving. Add spinnaker pole or whisker pole too.

    Least important stuff. ...
