Purchased MINI MOO a 1982 WD Schock Wavelength 24.


She sails pretty well! So far still sorting out this whole masthead rig dual spreader thing. This shot has lousy trim, but we were cooking in 15 knots of wind with 3 aboard, racing.

The sails came with the boat (2 full sets were very new, #1, #2, #3, main and spin). The name was already with the boat... I added the spots :)

Very kewl! Schock designed some really good racers. Sail trim looks good enough in the photo to get a sense of her potential. I think you're going to like the way she goes to windward, even in a blow. The sails look like they're good quality.

Well, You'll be easy to "spot" on the lake! Good luck with her!

Looks like you wandered into a blast zone!

The twist in your main might not be a bad idea in 15 kts...

Schocks are a blast! Congratulations!

Gas can was tied in, and is auto-locking closed... no worries...

Is this a better shot?

It's handy to have fellow sailors that understand what kind of shots you REALLY wanna get of your boat... This one was just incredible timing, and could NOT be planned, but we were taking sunset pictures of each others boat... A friend captured this one of my boat, and I think he won the photo of the day.
