    “Knot” a cool pun: worst boat names ever

    There's a few interesting ones getting around my neck of the woods . An Opti called " Little Ship " Then they moved to a 29er " Bigger Ship " There's also a cat thats been getting around for a few years called " Dickens Cider " i kid you not !

    Foiling Monohull - what would it look like?

    Well "oily beef hooked " I'm glad to see there's something finally happening on the surrogate front ,but it's certainly not an endearing image sitting there looking all soft and floppy while on the hard . I can only imagine what sort of hydraulic juggling is going to take place going from effectively a hand brake hill start to winding up to full noise . Anyone think that maybe the form stability of a scow might be a better alternative for a first go at the new concept ?

    Revitalising the East Coast Australian Tornado Fleet

    Good work finding owners for the boats . I owned a J&J Jarvie ( i think ) built boat in the early 80s and always have fond memories of how nice a boat it was to sail . Did always think it needed the 2nd trap . Then in the mid 2000s a mate bought a Marlstrom decked out with a kite and got to have a sail in that configuration , still an absolute joy to sail .

    sourcing phenolic or g10 bushing?

    Can anyone in Australia point me in the right direction as to where I can purchase G10 plate ? On line searches haven't been too successful and visits to electrical suppliers are showing me plate that I think contains asbestos .

    Thickening polyester resin

    Another good one is milled fibre , sanding can be a little tough as well .

    Broken CF Mast - Who can fix it?

    Thats an Incredibly clean break . Will certainly make it a far easier job for the repairer .

    My favorite boat repair tools.

    After 38 years of working in , under and around boats the things i treasure the most are my knee pads . They become more valuable to me every day .

    New imoca boats

    Apparently aluminium honeycomb , carbon fibre and salt water don't all go together .

    TF10 foiler... what could possibly go wrong!?.....

    I would imagine there were a few ruffled blazers when the fleet rocked up . Obviously left a good impression with the establishment for which we are all gratefull for . You would have to be seriously impaired or dead not to be moved by the spectical of a C class , let alone a fleet of them !

    The Future of One Design

    As being someone who has seen the internals of multiple Lasers over a number of years i can most definately say there has been differences in construction and quality. Most being acceptable ranging right through to not .
