    Help with race set-up basics, seminars, and a government requirement question

    For your registration numbers - check with your state. It varies state to state. Some states the boats are small enough not to be registered, others require it. There is a difference in the state registration (numbers and yearly tag on the hull) vs the numbers on your sail - thats for your...

    Cartopping Idea for the lone sailor

    I have the same trailer but with the 12" wheels. Harbor freight sells both. I cut the trailer in half and put a box on it to pull behind my Harley. I have carried 150-200lbs up to 90mph with no issues after towing 5000 miles. If your pulling on highway I would go with the 12" wheels vs. the...

    Question about leak test

    I use a bicycle pump, even if the connection is leaking you will still see the leaks when you pump it. I only pump a few times as I don't want to make more leaks. -Erik
