Count me in as the first to commit with U20 #25 fore.  I'll make every attempt to sail but must admit watching the fleet this year in Kansas was a lot of fun.

U20 Boat Maintenance & Care / Re: Aft cockpit hatch

OK, non of the above.  This hatch was designed to be installed in a vertical position.  It's not waterproof.  USI did build a few boats with the proper cockpit hatch.  Unfortunately there are no waterproof ones that will replace that size hatch.  My solution is buy a 4' piece of clear vinyl carpet runner material from Home Depot and cover the hatch, works great.

No question Steve will be missed by many of us in the U20 world.  Regatta tailgate parties will not be the same without Steve's smiling face mixing up the Goombays for everyone to enjoy.  Quite a generous contribution to the U20 class by loaning his second boat to countless newcomers to the class.  Camaraderie within the U20 troops was of far greater importants to Steve than winning races.  "It's all good".  And the list goes on and on.......

Hey Bill

Congrats on joining the class! I have sailed a regatta with one of the forte mast and we have made a few sails for them. Initially we thought that the our standard "tin" rig mainsail would be good but it was just to full. The Forte mast does not bend as much fore and aft as the tin rig and for sure not anywhere near where the C-Tech rig does.
Cheers

U20 General Discussion / Steve Rose

Very sad to hear the news that Steve Rose passed away, while it was not a shock as most of us heard about it his health issues while at the NA's in Kansas it is still a sad day for all U-20'ers.

Steve was a odd duck, but a great guy that gave way more then he got in our fleet. Lending his boats out and making that god awful concoction in his fish drink maker :)  He was a joy to be around and made out fleet more fun and better with him it in. He will be missed and I wish our dear friend eternal big breeze, an endless supply of his Gombay's and great music.

Cheers my friend

Hi Bob,

PM me your e-mail address.  I'll connect  you with the previous owner of Red Beard and the owner of Peabody.  They both sail the forte rig.  In discussion there seems to be a consensus that it's much stiffer than the aluminum rig, but can be bent more than the c-tech rig.  I am by no means an expert on this topic, 222 is aluminum.  i took a quick look on the U20 Yahoo group site, there is some more info about the carbon rigs in the back-log but I didn't see anything conclusive.  You may want to do a more exhaustive search yourself.

Where are you sailing?
