5 months until Figawi

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.
