Nelson Marek 30 - USA 83333
Designed in San Diego in 1989, built by Mark Lindsay in Boston Massachusetts, with keel and rudder upgrades by Alan Andrews in 1996. Survivor of the MORC class, now racing under PHRF in Buzzards Bay, Nantucket Sound and Vineyard Sound.
Took delivery of a Nelson Marek 30 today, which we're temporarily calling Whomp 'Em.
No big plans for winter modifications, just hoping to get her covered up before winter starts.
Here are a couple shots from September of the boat being raced by the Mass Maritime Academy under the name Satan's Microwave.
I think this race was pursuit format, so this would appear to be her overtaking a J/105 on a reach. Which is a very good sign since there are 6 J/105's around buzzards bay, and under PHRF I'll owe them 3 seconds per mile even though they are 3-4 feet longer.
