Their are no clubs in our immediate area but I have 6 other chaps building and we should have a great time without getting too sticky with class rules and such. Just want to have fun (and maybe a beer or so). I have passed your comments on to Jack and looks like he will have a go with a Phantom. How are yours and buddies working out?
Fair winds and close hauling.
Hi Big Cubs,
I think I am the only person that has had a Phantom for nearly a month and not sailed her? I think my friend has a spot on the brain as he put hot glue in the keel bulb and it distorted the shape and went all soft.
I wait on him as he has the van. I ride bikes. Maybe I need a sidecar mate?
Fear not, when we maiden I will tell, warts and all.
Lipdaddy - I can agree rudder servo was junk, absolute. Your boat looks very nice.
