Did the windshield get sold?  I am at Nepean Sailing Club so much closer (Ottawa Canada).

Dang, I was interested in the windfisher. I wonder if it could be sent via greyhound freight? long drive from Raleigh, haha.

Rave / Re: Anti-Pitch pole foil modification

Well since I haven't pitchpoled yet, I have to say it does the job!
But I damaged bent all the diamonds on my (modified) mast doing what has been described as a "Red October" so been out of action getting that repaired.

The next thing I'll be addressing is trying to stop the boat filling up with so much water all the time....my bigger pump still can't cope, so I'm thinking to block off the forward cockpit - the crew can just crouch somewhere.....

Rave / Re: Rave setup in a dry slip

Did you ever figure out the time required?   I have the option of renting two dry slips at my sailing club that are side by side that would allow me to leave it assembled.  But I am not sure about getting it out of the compound to the launch ramp (have to go through a timed gate).  So I am interested in how it worked out for you.

JKD, did your anti pitch pole solution get tested this year?   Does it work well?

Rave / Re: Rave Winter Storage Retrofit Kit - Install Instructions
« Last post by ixd704 on November 23, 2017, 05:53:20 PM »
Good to know.  The guy I bought mine from said to loosen all the bolts which I did.  I was also happy to find a winter kit already installed :-).   Mine appears to be a little different than the one shown as it is a square tube section inserted inside the frame tube section and held in place with two screws.  I just removed one of the screws so the tube can now float.  I assume that this should do the trick.  I removed the bolts from the bow sprit as it had cracked there before.  I am in Ottawa Canada so we get down to close to -30 in the winter.

So I have a foil from Hydrosail, thanks Erwin :-) 
Does anyone have the wing tip winglet specification / shape for the aluminium 3/16" plate that I see on some of the boats?  Hand drawn or a CAD file is good.  If someone has them if I just have the offset from the foil they could measure, that would be good too.
