  1. Chick,


    You are correct- In fact I should have compared Max - Min drafts which would be the length of the lowered centerboard below the hull.

    Check with Graham, but you might be able to make a virtue out of necessity by adding bilge keels like the Belhaven 19 and get not only better windward performance but also level beaching/grounding without any added draft.

  2. Chick,


    If you click on the attachment to my earlier msg, you should be able to see it. If not, here are the finishers in the first five days, their class, and the finish time in hours. I hope the columns line up kinda OK

    Not to be a wide ass, but the best way to handle computer stuff you don't understand is to ask a teenager.

  3. Wetfoot,


    I have been waiting for the WT results page to be fixed up. Last night & earlier if you refreshed Class 4 it said something like 'this is over' and everyone that had not finished got a DNF. It has just been changed so that everyone not to CP2 is a DNF. I checked on wanders (first not at CP2) and it looks like he's on the trailer at St. James City across from.Sanibel, so maybe they all have dropped out,

    Also the time for Roo to CP3 is shown as 2 days 20 Hours 5 Mins. DWSB said in SOS’s blog that Roo got in to CP3 at 14:47 on 8 Mar and he should know if anybody does. That is 3 Days 5 Hours 47 Mins from 07:00 on 5 Mar.

    The table has been updated with the latest times.

    It looks like Roo is on his way, and once he fights his way upwind to the Keys, he should have a reach or at least an easy lay to Key Largo (Key Largo is 39 Miles away at 240 degrees, so an east wind is 150 degrees off his bow and southeast is 105 degrees).

    I am also waiting to see what lugnut does- He’s been at CP3 since about 1600 yesterday.




    That little 'Whoops' when he got underway looks like me trying to leave an anchorage single handed

  4. Alex,

    I can't get the facebook page either. In the tracking map, when I select All Challengers for a class, the little captions to identify challengers mainly don't work, which is a bummer.

    What works for me (Event / Class / Challenger / Display Detail)

    for Graham ( EC2016 / Class 4 / Roo / Show Tracks and All Waypoints)

    for Alan ( UF2016 / Class 3 / SOS / Show Tracks and All Waypoints)

    for Dawn ( UF2016 / Class 1 / Sandy Bottom / Show Tracks and All Waypoints)

    You can find anyone else you are interested in on the "list of participants" link on the B&B page.

    Hope that helps

  5. Hobie Mirage Drive


    Has anyone tried a Hobie Mirage Drive as an auxiliary for the Everglades Challenge? It looks like it has much more power than oars- see

    and it can be mounted in a wooden boat- see http://www.duckworksmagazine.com/04/s/projects/curious/index.htm

    If you can find a place for it in "Carlita", it might be a big advantage over oars for water over a foot or so deep, and you could have a flush plug for the well when it is not in use.
