Starboard Formula 156

My venerable Formula board, 2003 Starboard 156 needs a home. I haven't gotten it wet in two years. Good condition. Includes chicken strap (center rear strap) Board bag and 70cm fin. DRAM construction (slightly heavier, slightly more ding proof) 262x100cm $350

Starboard's stated volume of 156 l is a lie. It's probably 1451or so 129l (Randy looked it up) because the nose is like a potato chip. The 100cm width makes it stable but don't linger on the nose while tacking. The straps are outboard so this may overwhelm someone starting out but if you are comfortable in the straps, grab a 7.5 or bigger and have fun.

Deep tuttle so could be used for foiling at your own risk. I'll grab some pics this weekend. Generic photo below.

Still have a 10.8/9/9 rig if you want something big to put on it.

I saw it. I was probably posting when you did. I had Important Stuff™ to do tonight so didn't check email until late.

Re: Starboard Formula 156

Handy with a bit of epoxy and cf? Turn any old formula board into a modern foil board

And you are probably asking, "Where can I get an old formula board?"

Ahem.... ⬆️ Biggrin

Re: Starboard Formula 156

I think you would probably want to start with a board that has already been uglyed up a bit by foiling failures.

It might be safer to ride a unicycle on a tightrope

Price lowered: $300.

Incoming gear I need to pay for. I have a 9.5 and bigger sails/complete rigs if you need something that matches the capabilities of this board. It sails well with down to a 7.5. Foil capable or fin.

Put it on Windsurfing classifieds. I got a bunch of replies on my F2 there.

I think it's time to start - I'm interested to see what you come up with.
