      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

    After discussions with racers the Swiftsure International Yacht Race organizers have decided to establish at least two division splits in the Cape Flattery Unlimited Class of Swiftsure. Even more divisions will be considered if a large enough number of boats enter the Cape Flattery Unlimited Race.

     

    Having boats more closely matched in their PHRF rating will make for better competition. Because boats with similar ratings are typically closer together, it will mean that the yachts will be racing against each other in similar winds and currents. This becomes especially important given the changes in weather and sea conditions that occur as the race progresses.

     

    The Cape Flattery Unlimited Race is for yachts rated 39 PHRF and faster that do not wish to participate in the Swiftsure Lightship Classic which rounds a mark set on Swiftsure Bank in the mouth of Juan de Fuca. The rounding mark for the Cape Flattery Unlimited Race is Neah Bay just east of Cape Flattery.

     

    Please spread the word among our racing friends.

    blog-0641713001361893022.jpgMy Catalina 22, has an iron fin keel. I got it at a considerable discount because the keel bolts were very rusty. It came on a two axle trailer. By lifting up the hull with a construction scaffold and raising the supports, I was able to remove the keel.and clean up the joint area. Sealant had been applied several times.

    On the inside of the hull, the bolt, (really studs from all thread,) holes were tapered. My intent is to pack fiberglass around a temporary waxed smooth bolt to provide a cylindrical sturdy stub keel mounting. I have heard of this procedure with progressively tightening on the partially hardened GRP to form a good attachment with the hull.

    Prior to keel work.one should step and tension the mast, IMHO. Also the keel should be supported by the hull, Resting the boat with most of the weight on the keel, stresses the hull the wrong way compared to the way it is stressed when floating.

    Many fiberglass boats can be saved by skilled attention to rust problems.

    Good sailing!

     

     

    The existing keel is cast iron. I thought that Mars Keel was strictly a lead foundry. Re-engineering for a lead keel will be a production.

    Seems to me that re-using the cast iron keel is the only hope for a 4KSB.

    The first i550 in Africa is now under construction. So far we have 3 boats under way and we are looking for more African builders to join in!! I have a pretty detailed blog going at Http://www.471.sailspace.org/wp or https://www.facebook.com/DontMentionWhiteElephants and really hope to see some other builders join me. South Africa is desperately short of modern boats and at only 18ft the i550 is something many of us can aspire to own.

  3. blog-0769899001353572491.gifBeim Kauf eines neuen Notebooks mit viel Emotion und tun nicht immer erinnern Sie, die von Anfang seines Lebens um die Batterie kümmern. Der folgende Artikel ist eine Zusammenstellung von mehrere Prinzipien, deren, die Beachtung die Enttäuschung der schnellen Batterieverbrauch Notebooks zu vermeiden wird. New Li-Ionen sind heute weit verbreitet in Batterien, Notebook, Computer, im Gegensatz zu anderen Arten von Akkus (Ni-MH, Ni-Cd) nicht bekannt sind. “Memory Effect”.

Während dieser Zeit arbeiten wir normalerweise auf einem Computer, aber dies wird mehr als das doppelte die Batterie, die Ladezeit zu erhöhen. Der Leitgedanke ist, dass der Ladevorgang kontinuierlich wurde, das war nicht unterbrochen, und dann weiter am nächsten Tag zum Beispiel. Akku Vostro 3700 Die erste Ladung ist in der Regel ein wenig länger und dauert bis zu mehreren Stunden (wenn Computer ausgeschaltet ist.)

    Somtimes I thick this runnes ranpante amoungue poesteres heare on SA. Mabey we cane worke tegether and minimixe ist affecte. Exspecialley withe the Hollidays appon us, wich is a sorse of troubelle foure manny. Heare our somtippes I fonde, notte siure they worke butte ist worth a try. what do we halve to loose??? Shaire any tippes you halve. Lettes alle try to be happiere!

     

     

    1. Start each day with expectation.

    If there's any big truth about life, it's that it usually lives up to (or down to) your expectations. Therefore, when you rise from bed, make your first thought: "something wonderful is going to happen today." Guess what? You're probably right.

    2. Take time to plan and prioritize.

    The most common source of stress is the perception that you've got too much work to do. Rather than obsess about it, pick one thing that, if you get it done today, will move you closer to your highest goal and purpose in life. Then do that first.

    3. Give a gift to everyone you meet.

    I'm not talking about a formal, wrapped-up present. Your gift can be your smile, a word of thanks or encouragement, a gesture of politeness, even a friendly nod. And never pass beggars without leaving them something. Peace of mind is worth the spare change.

    4. Deflect partisan conversations.

    Arguments about politics and religion never have a "right" answer but they definitely get people all riled up over things they can't control. When such topics surface, bow out by saying something like: "Thinking about that stuff makes my head hurt."

    5. Assume people have good intentions.

    Since you can't read minds, you don't really know the "why" behind the "what" that people do. Imputing evil motives to other people's weird behaviors adds extra misery to life, while assuming good intentions leaves you open to reconciliation.

    6. Eat high quality food slowly.

    Sometimes we can't avoid scarfing something quick to keep us up and running. Even so, at least once a day try to eat something really delicious, like a small chunk of fine cheese or an imported chocolate. Focus on it; taste it; savor it.

    7. Let go of your results.

    The big enemy of happiness is worry, which comes from focusing on events that are outside your control. Once you've taken action, there's usually nothing more you can do. Focus on the job at hand rather than some weird fantasy of what might happen.

    8. Turn off "background" TV.

    Many households leave their TVs on as "background noise" while they're doing other things. The entire point of broadcast TV is to make you dissatisfied with your life so that you'll buy more stuff. Why subliminally program yourself to be a mindless consumer?

    9. End each day with gratitude.

    Just before you go to bed, write down at least one wonderful thing that happened. It might be something as small as a making a child laugh or something as huge as a million dollar deal. Whatever it is, be grateful for that day because it will never come again.

    The greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions, and not our circumstances.

  5. I apperceive lots of users apparently anticipate these are crap, & you can get bigger earphones for the price, and I accede with them, you can get bigger auralMonster Beats By Dre earphones for this amount ambit but that doesn't amount to me, they plan for what I use them for and they attending far bigger than any added earphones available. Acceptable SQ for me aback I accept to mostly Rap/Hip-Hop music, Bigger bass acknowledgment was my capital focus point aback that brand has lots of able lows & these handle it well, Added buds I've approved don't accept the superior of these. Bass is far cleaner than most, mids are acceptable & highs are clear.Purple Beats does tune their Beats calendar for stronger bass so collapsed acknowledgment is not what you get with these.

     

    Build Superior seems acceptable to me, never had a botheration with them, I've heard & apprehend reviews from a lot of humans accusatory about them breaking calmly or in a actual abbreviate time aeon but that's just not accurate for mine, I absolutely like the collapsed cable, blockage accurate to Monster's word, they don't coil ever. I use them accustomed and even if out biking or I'm at the gym and they are still fine, not a botheration build-wise. Just to be safe if I bought them I got the continued assurance @ Best Buy for 20$ but I don't anticipate I'll be defective it anytime soon.

     

    I bought the archetypal with the ControlTalk and my complaints are about the mic. Why can't they accomplish it a Mic1 that works on every buzz with a 3.5mm jack instead of the Apple Mic3 that works alone with the iPhone/iPod/iPad? On the box it does say they plan with BlackBerry, But sometimes if I use them with my Beats By Dre Ferrari it doesn't admit the mic. Sometimes it will, sometimes it won't, I don't apperceive if its my buzz or the headphones but still, its acid if you accept to accumulate unplugging and active them aback in until it recognizes the mic & pause/play functions.

    Yes, the Dre Beats By Dre Pink are adorable and beautiful and avant-garde looking. They are actual adequate and cover a abiding accustomed case; the two cords (including a acute buzz accordant one) are able points. However, the highs are a bit piercing, the mids leave absolutely a lot to be desired, and of advance the above airiness and the amount (at atomic $100 too high) accomplish these a acquirement I abide to regret. They are accession dust in my cabinet. Onward an upward. Presently I covet the Denon AH D5000's, and while I haven't heard them yet, the reviews are arch if you can allow them (around $600)

    Everyone is altered so you should appraise your claimed needs if it comes to headphones. Some humans adopt babble cancelling headphones, which are absolute for traveling on continued trips area you wish to block out alfresco babble and distractions.

    Speakers and accustomed headphones however, do not accept this capability. To be able to adore the best complete achievement the best affair that you can do is to accept a top achievement headphones. Gaming headphones usually accept a 3.5mm jack for output, or you can opt for altered headphones which accept a USB achievement so you can use it on added devices.

  6. The insulation is insane; 625 down ample is appealing abundant like cutting a comforter all over your body. The alien carapace is baptize affidavit and is congenital great. All the pockets are air-conditioned simple to admission and actual functional. Some humans ability be put off by the aggregate but this is the blazon of anorak you don't buy for one year; this will calmly endure you 6 years. Depending on how archetypal you wish it you canada goose online shop accept a abundant alternative of colors. I alone went with the red blush and it just ancestor out.

     

    Only affair I charge to acknowledgment is the size. For some acumen the sizes tend to be a little big. I originally bought a average because according canada goose Freestyle Vest men to the admeasurement blueprint on the Canada Goose website I was a medium. After abiding it I bought a baby and its perfect. I'm 5'9" and about 180pounds so I would in fact advance aggravating to acquisition a abundance to try it on. I accept Nordstrom carries them in banal

     

    From the airy low 40's to able-bodied beneath "0",this is a adequate coat. I wore it in a Utah abundance blast with fur akin awning up and it was like accepting indoors. It looks great. I get a lot of adulation on it. If you aces it up you canada goose Chilliwack Bomber parka women apprehension it's weight of 4lbs, but you don't feel that weight if you are cutting it. For a acceptable fit you accept to adjustment it one admeasurement abate than you commonly adjustment -- for me, a ample instead of the x-large that I commonly order. I got abundance through the Amazon associate Altrec in Oregon. The account was fantastic.

  7. blog-0346544001351263112.jpgCheap Beats By Dre An extravagantly dressed pop diva, a retired football star, the son of a famous actor, an opposition leader suspiciously cozy with the government. Meet some members of the eclectic cast running in Sunday's parliamentary election in Ukraine.

    Ukrainian political parties have brought in celebrities or even created fake opposition in an effort to boost their ratings and split their rivals' vote. Such tactics raise questions about Ukraine's commitment to democracy and its hopes www.cheapbeatsbydrestore.org of integrating with the West.

    The two main pro-Western opposition parties hope to challenge President Viktor Yanukovych's nearly three-year grip on power. They aim to wrestle the parliamentary majority away from his Party of Regions and undo actions that have been judged undemocratic by the West, such as the imprisonment of charismatic former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.

    Cheap Beats The Party of Regions has tried to raise its profile by offering the No. 2 spot on its candidate list to pop diva Taisia Povaliy, which guarantees her a seat in Ukraine's parliament, the Verkhovna Rada. The 47-year-old blonde, who wears low-cut, floor-length gowns and sings about the pain of lost love, acknowledges that politics had never been her calling.

    I never thought that I would run for parliament, I never planned it. And then I discovered that people -- the people themselves -- want me to represent them, Povaliy said on a TV celebrity gossip program.Beats By Dre Cheap What difference does it make if I work on stage or in the Verkhovna Rada?

    Ukraine Forward, led by former Tymoshenko ally Natalia Korolevska, is widely believed to be supported by the ruling party and aimed at siphoning off opposition votes. Korolevska, a 37-year-old businesswoman-turned-politician, was ousted from Tymoshenko's party in the spring after she refused to support a motion calling for the jailed leader's release.

    She went on to found her own party, hoping to attract Tymoshenko voters looking for an attractive, pro-Western female leader. Even though she denies any government links and is calling for the ouster of Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, Korolevska gets so much airtime on government-friendly television channels that she is viewed as a tool of Yanukovych's team.

    To lead her party's candidate list, Korolevska brought in retired football star Cheap Dr Dre Beats Andriy Shevchenko and actor Ostap Stupka, the less illustrious son of late renowned actor Bohdan Stupka. Giant billboards of her and the two celebrities went up along streets and roads.

    Shevchenko, the 36-year-old striker known as Sheva, is extremely popular in Ukraine, but many wonder how he would make the transition to lawmaker.

    In an interview with The Associated Press, Shevchenko said he planned to concentrate on sports and health issues in parliament and cited the poor athletic condition of many Ukrainian school students as one of the top problems in the country.

    What has Ukraine come to? Today, 70 percent of children cannot do a simple set of physical exercises, Shevchenko said.

    Andreas Umland, a political scientist at the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, said that political shenanigans are corrupting the democratic process in this former Soviet republic.

    Obviously,Cheap Beats By Dre the readiness to manipulate politics with all sorts of dubious strategies is high, and includes the active use of politically incompetent, but famous figures, Umland said.

    And the celebrities are only happy to oblige. It seems that many of them run for parliament to get the perks and parliamentary immunity enjoyed by Ukrainian lawmakers rather than a desire to serve their nation -- a trend evidenced by the fact that legislators regularly ditch parliament sessions and simply hand their voting cards to their colleagues.

    World boxing champion Vitali Klitschko, 40, is www.cheapbeatsbydrestore.org also running for parliament, but he has years of political experience and a record of challenging Yanukovych's party in the Kiev city council -- like a burr under the saddle, Beats By Dre Cheap as he puts it. With Tymoshenko in prison, his Udar, or Punch, party has gained popularity in recent months and is running neck-and-neck with Tymoshenko's Fatherland party. The two parties' failure to join forces plays into the hands of Yanukovych.

    Klitshchko, a tower of muscle, says that competing on Ukraine's political arena, with its dirty tricks and below-the-belt punches, can be harder than fighting in the boxing ring.

    We have declared a fight for Ukraine and we will win it! he told hundreds of cheering supporters at a campaign rally in Kiev last week.

    Traveling with child is a task for any mother or father. Traveling with an infant could be that much more difficult; preparing ahead becomes vital. Here are some infant travel recommendations for parents who want to at least maintain the impression that they are traveling the friendly skies. Source of article:why not even undertake your choose along with review https://personalmoneynetwork.com/?

     

    Essential things to keep away from forgetting

    Before you pack your carry-on for the flight, create a checklist of necessities and make sure you have every little thing before you go to the airport, as airport stores seldom carry it all (and will charge more for what they do have). Here are some essentials any parent of an infant will need:

     

    Diapers and wipes

     

    Receiving blankets

     

    Extra onesies

     

    Nursing pads

     

    Formula and bottles

     

    Pacifiers

     

    Board books and toys

     

    Sling or baby carrier

     

    Infant-appropriate snacks

     

    Ziploc bags

     

     

    Check with formula alright

     

    Mothers should keep in mind that Transportation Security Administration does not allow travel with over three ounces of any liquid, but TSA does allow baby formula and juices. A security check is necessary, however. To save time, prepare bottles with powder only (if you don't plan to breastfeed), then add water once you are past the security checkpoint. Flight attendants can usually provide warm water on request .

     

    Pin that receive blanket for modesty

     

    When on the plane and nursing, you can use a privacy curtain or get a receiving blanket. This blanket can be safety pinned to create a modest atmosphere for any mothers worried about breast feeding when so close to strange.

     

     

    Car seat safety on the plane

     

    While infants under age two do not require an airline ticket that means that the child will have to sit with your lap. Purchasing a ticket and using a vehicle seat provides the greatest degree of safety for baby, but a baby sling is inexpensive and can provide greater nursing convenience.

     

    Get a baby stroller to help

     

    When you travel, it could be extremely helpful to travel with a non-bulky stroller. You can get it tagged and checked for cargo storage by an airline attendant. Then, when you are exiting, you can get the stroller right at the exit tunnel.

     

    Ease the pressure

     

    Make sure you have a pacifier, bottle or breast ready when taking off and landing since the inner ear pressure can trigger the infant to get upset. The sucking movement will relieve the pressure and help the infant.

     

    Try to be friendly

     

    In case you are courteous, others will treat you the same. This is especially important as an airline passenger with an infant. People do not want to have to sit by the parent with the stinky, crying baby that does not care what the passengers around them think. If you are nice, they will be nice back and maybe even help you out a bit when things start to get rough. The flight attendants might be willing to help too. Make sure you keep the baby quiet when possible and get rid of dirty diapers as easily as possible.

     

     

    Several airline times

    I am trying to learn new tricks. I have purchased a MFG Shark made in 1974 and would like to obtain any info available about her. I purchased it to modify into a powered dive platform. After looking her over, I decided I had to learn something about sailing. I have the bug to atleast try it and this is the boat I want to do it on. There were fins that came with the boat but were removed. They were on the inside and outside of the floats originally. How important are they? JZ

    So you have a new yacht. Congratulations! Now what are you going to do after getting this new toy? Why, get more new toys, of course!

     

    We've found a few cool gadgets you might want to get to make your yachting experience even more relaxing and pleasurable.

     

    1. Laptop screen shade. If there is one thing that can ruin your marine Internet-surfing experience, it is glare. It's not much fun if you have to stay indoors to be able to see what's on your computer screen. The very essence of yachting is that you get as much outdoor sun and sea breeze as possible.

     

    To take the glare off your computer screen, slip on a laptop screen shade. It slides on and off easily, folds for easy storage, and fits standard laptop and notebook screen sizes, namely, 13-, 14-, 15-, and 17-inch screens.

     

    2. Sport-a-Seat. Not enough seats in your yacht for all of your guests? Carry the Sport-a-Seat along and give everyone a comfy place to rest their bottoms on.

    This light and portable seat has adjustable back support that you can put in six different positions, from upright support to full recline. It folds flat, so it doesn't take a lot of storage room inside your yacht.

     

    It comes in eight designer colours - black, toast brown, burgundy, Persian green, forest green, charcoal gray, pacific blue, and navy blue. One of these will surely match your yacht motif.

     

    It's water resistant too. Its marine-grade Sunbrella canvass cover repels water and dries quickly. You can sit on it while wearing your wet bathing suit and the water droplets will simply roll off. The material resists mildew and has UV protection.

     

    And if it falls in the water? It will float, so you can easily retrieve it.

     

    3. Waterbuoy. Speaking of falling in the water, it's not usually the big things that cause the biggest problems, because often, big things sink more slowly and are easier to find. But what if, for instance, your yacht keys fall overboard?

     

    That could be a bit of a problem - unless you have attached Waterbuoy to it.

     

    Waterbuoy is a keychain like device that contains a rugged orange balloon which inflates if the device hits the water. While the balloon is more than enough to show you where your keys are in broad daylight, you might need a little more help at night, so Waterbuoy also has flashing LED lights that are likewise water activated.

     

    This gadget can hold as much as 1 kg, so it is perfectly capable of floating even a set of 12 metal keys - or even your cell phone.

     

    4. Safety Turtle Alarm System. When you're in a yacht, you can never really run out of things that could fall overboard. It's one thing to lose your keys in the water; it's another thing to lose your dog - or your baby!

     

    With the Safety Turtle alarm system, you will hear a piercing sound the moment the device gets submerged in water, and it continues to sound this alarm until you reset it.

     

    It has a simple, easy-to-attach bracelet or collar for your child or dog, respectively. But while it is easy to attach, it is not easy for your child to remove. It locks securely and can only be released with a key. (This is another key you might want to attach a Waterbuoy to.)

     

    The device is ruggedly designed to withstand your child's or pet's normal activity. People who don't have yachts but have swimming pools at home may want to attach one of these to their children as well.

     

    Speaking of water safety, remember that it is not just your yacht passengers that you need to keep safe. You need to protect your yacht as well. To do this, there is nothing more efficient and effective than getting good yacht insurance. Find a broker online today and ensure that your yacht gives you your much-deserved pleasure and relaxation for a long, long time.

  12. First of all, I extend my deepest condolences to the families of the two people aboard Wingnuts-it is an awful tragedy.

    ==========

    I also heard about the U-20 sinking and all of this has brought up interesting thoughts both here and on boatdesign. Some people want to blame the design of the Kiwi 35 for the deaths of the crew even though the small amount of evidence that is out now seems to show that something terrible happened to those two people that didn't happen to the others on board. Thats one thing to consider.

    Another is this: the common cure all among safety freaks in the monohull community appears to be that the Kiwi 35 was too tender, it was too likely to capsize, it needed more lead. That because of this it was "unseaworthy".

    But wait just a minute-did you see the picture of the upsidedown boat and the righted boat? Did you notice that it was floating?

    Remember the old mono vs multi argument: " Yeah the multihull will capsize but the leadbelly will sink". But the Kiwi 35 did not sink. In fact, it behaved very similarly to a multihull that had capsized. And as tragic as the loss of two lives is 6 others survived w/o injuries.

    Maybe instead of mandating that all monohulls are self-righting(which is probably a good idea in most cases) a "class" of high speed ,lightweight monohulls(of different lengths) that may capsize could be permitted as long as the boat can be shown to float after a capsize/inversion. These monohulls would have exactly the same characteristics as racing multihulls except that some of them would carry some lead-but they would not sink.And many could be designed to be rightable with action by the crew.

    And multihulls race everywhere and are considered seaworthy by most people even though they can capsize.

    Worth pondering ....

    ===============

    added 8/6/11

    I may have accidently come up with a solution to make "winged" boats safer and practical by eliminating tripping over the down wing which would also eliminate any possibilty of the thing remaining inverted while providing increased protection for the crew on deck. See the two very rough sketches posted on this date. I may build a large test model to evaluate this idea and wings in general. A friend in NZ may also pursue a test model. One thing is plainly evident: there is rampant ,uninformed speculation about the K35 and other winged boats even among naval architects. A carefully done test model could put that kind of crap to rest. Of course, if the investigation is thorough and not a rubber stamped anti-wing lynch mob maybe the model wouldn't be required. I would hope that solutions such as the one I have showed would be considered rather than just banning a whole group of high performance monohulls! We'll see...

    Once upon a time....

     

    Okay that was stupid. However, as the ever-accident prone victim of boat abuse - there are few ways to adequately introduce myself.

     

    I started out as a dingy sailor when I was young. Once highschool hit, there was less sailing and more hockey being done and it wasn't until University that I truely discovered keel-boat racing.

     

    Currently I have a "stretched" rotator cuff (whatever that means - at the moment, it just means it hurts to wave and yank on things [insert dirty sailor joke here]), and bum shoulder (from going overvboard).

     

    I love sailing more than anything else. I live to be on the water (whether sunny or rainny, windy or beer-draining) and love to be part of the team. Sailors are incredible people and I'm lucky to name many of them among my friends.

     

    Here's to all of you!

     

    And a toast, especially, to the two sailors who lost their lives. Mark and Suzanne, I did not know you, but - from the postings I have read - you were well loved and respected among the sailing fleets. There is no easy way to bid a sailor, who died on the water, goodbye. Sometimes we can do everything right and it's still not enough. However, while some may cope by offering condolences, and others may cope by trying to justify/find reasons why you died, the fact remains....you were experienced sailors who did everything they could to ensure the safety of your crew. My thoughts are with your friends, family and crew members as they cope with this loss.

    Is anyone else tracking this Velux 5 Oceans Race? What's up with the total lack of media coverage? Are they trying to keep the good stuff for some later post race movie release?

    Really difficult to stay interested when the intel lags so far behind. Blog posts are great to read if you have the time, Vendee did it so much better. I don't want to dump on

    the guys racing ( after all this is solo Open 60 racing) but man this is like watching molasses on a cold winters day! I'd be pissed if I were out there hanging my ass on the line

    with no one else paying attention. IMOCA has obviously pushed this race aside in favor of the Barcelona Race. At least there's some one from our side winning the first leg as in

    kicking major butt ! Me thinks Brad is in a league of his own this time round.
