My new ride and what have I been up to

Postby GsiTurbo » Sun Feb 27, 2011 4:40 am

Hello everyone!
I have been absent from the forum for a long, long time. I do peek here every now and then, but after spending rather large amount of money on the GSI Turbo project, I came to the conclusion that enough is enough. I must say I very much appreciate reliability of my 02 Lanos HB, which apart from KN filter replacement, APEX springs and KYB GR2's in all four corners is 100% stock.

So what am I up to? I have came back to the hobby I have enjoyed each and every summer before migrating to Canada - sailing. As I like to be unique, the yacht I purchased was imported all the way from Poland. It is 05 Solina 27, 30.3ft LOA (lengh overall) and she is 9.8ft wide. Entire 7050 lbs of pure sailing pleasure. Power-wise, she carries 345 sq feet of sail. This can be boosted by another 484 sq feet of asymmetrical spinnaker for extra boost :-) Either way, I must say she is already one of the fastest boat where I go sailing. Back-up power, for getting in and out of the marina or when there is no wind, is the Japanese super efficient 9.8hp Tohatsu motor with electric start and backup battery charging. It is my floating RV with heating, two burner stove, running water, electricity, wide screen TV, radio and a lot of other goodies. Some pics are attached. Now I can't decide on the name..lol

Cheers!
Tom

Wow! Looks great, i have to say i'd love to go sailing! Although in my local area... not much to do with a sail boat... Arizona doesn't have too much in the ways of water anyway... oh well I'll live vicariously through you.
a woo that is a work in progress

^^What he said! ... ... lol ..

Beautiful boat. When will you fit a turbo? hehe
I've got an old 16ft sailboat sitting and rotting :( ... But my wife agrees that in a few years after we've bought a house and our finances settle into place, she would not mind us getting a nice boat for weekeds or extended weekends sailing down to the outer banks of North Carolina, which is just a few hours south of us here in Virginia.
