My Wife has asked "how many boats does one family need?" if somone would be willing to fund the project I am willing to do the research and come up with a difinitive #.Murphs said:now thats a fleet!

Check out the 505 home page its very good. Its got a great article about the boats and the people. I enjoyed mine and would still have it but I ran short of cash and needed to sell or buy out my partner who wanted to race lasers....so I sold and raced lasers for a while. http://leirtech.com/505sail/505links.htmlMDsailor170758 said:My wife and I each have a laser and I bought an international-14 a few years back with a friend of mine. To those of you who have sailed 505's, how are they?
I am definitely considering dropping the I-14 for a 505. Noone will ever sail it with me cuz it's broken 50% of the time, upside down 50% when not not broken, and takes an hour to rig.
I've never gotten the boat up to speed and I think that a used 505 would be a much better boat. We have an annual drag race at our club and while I lapped the entire fleet one year in the I-14, I have spent every year since upside down watching a fleet of really slow boats sail on by. Speed is useless if you can't control it...
Anyway, any opinions of the 505?
