I rather like the wider hips on this hull compared to the DF65. I look forward to sailing the Columbia Gorge in 17-22 mph
with the C rig.

edit B rig..............................
we sail in Hood River at the marina at 1pm on sundays if you ever want to make the drive, pm me if interested.

I have just completed rigging my new Affinity. I still have a lot of Irish pennants to trim but it went together pretty easily.

This is my first sailboat and I couldn't resist the $91 sale price from HK.

What's the deal with deck eye #3 being clipped? I thought I recieved a defective boat, but zooming into all pics, I see they are all like that. What's its purpose?

Makes it easy to de-rig the boat. The end of the line just slips over the eye.
