    I can't imagine that they'd want my 26 foot, 1984 boat in the Big Boat Series. That's so much so, that I wonder if the invitation is really for other stuff.

    I don't actually pay much attention to...

    Who was the guy with the mini 6.5 that tried to start up a So Cal run to Hawaii two years ago. Was that Jerome Sammarcelli?..Shaka Challenge? I bet he'd be interested.

    Wasa 55... That's actually 44 feet long. I think the "55" is for the displacement of 5500 kg. It looks a LOT like a Lady Helmsman...39 feet Håkan Södergren designer.

    It looks to me like the steering box, the fiberglass one...the box itself is plenty strong enough. The box didn't fail, the attachment of box to deck failed.
