      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. Fuck! Thats what i have been looking for as a cheap drain racer! Any more? There is a trailer less one on yacht hub with tube wings! Shame really! When they first came to OZ i remember 2 of them comming to the TSCQ annual regatta, years ago, cleaned up, showed a lot of bigger boats the way to go, a Red one and a yellow one called Elliot Ness! Funny as when they went up to the piss up and left the boats tied to a jetty and the tide went out! The mooring cleats are real strong, boat out of the water by them! Rip it up, there was a modded one at Airlie once, yellow, bowsprit and a chopped up cabin from memory! Was a pic on the race week sight for a while! Thanks googles, i have access to a 70% complete hull and deck combo that i was thinking it could be a good 6m turbo project. bare hull and deck pulled from mould and joined then left for the past 6 years. not sure if it will be as quick as the egan but if it still a resonsable hull shape it should perform well enough to compete against the other 6m SMS boats out there. i might get some correct measurements for the hull and then send them into ASBA with a turbo rig plan to get a dummy certificate made. this will tell me if is going to be worth continuing with the transfermation. other wise i will be looking for a different 6m boat. by the way RIP IT UP was sold today as well. moving onto different hands but still racing in qld.
  2. Is there anybody out there that has modified a Elliot 5.9m to a masthead aso and lightened the keel. just a thought about a future 6m sporty. the egan 6m is 420kg sailing weight and carries a 120kg bulb. so thats a 300 kg hull. now a 5.9m elliot is 600 kg sailing weight thats 350kg hull weight and a 250kg bulb. so if the egan 6m can stay upright with such little lead than maybe a elliot would also???? has anyone got pictures of a modified e 5.9 sailing?
  3. hey mate what are the dimensions of the rig. weight, diameter, carbon? length
