    Pretty much the view from my Office. That bridge washed away of course.

    Not sure it rated much lower anyway on IRC, 1.145 v. 1.152ish Be interesting to see the righting moments

    what is it?

    Seems a sailing class association in just one jurisdiction that is having the problem with their own rules. Rest of the world seems to understand the class rules quite well and got ticks on the paper. Thats right we call those things Rules.

    what is it?

    Still not getting it. "Eventually you have to ask the question...How perdantic do you want to be? Nothing to stop the builder wedging up the mould in the middle and draging the ends down before laminating commences, narrowing beam and flattening rocker. The framers of the rule understood the issues associated with moulding polyester boats and produced templates and tolerances for a very good reason." Read the Rules! It is not an issue of simply meeting two measurement stations in front of the mast.

    what is it?

    Old document from about 2012 which does not address the current issues. In any event this statement does not reflect the Class Rules "The Class has hull templates which are applied to the finished hull. If the hull fits these templates, and all measurements are within the Class tolerances and specifications, the hull is an Etchells." Indeed this issue is at the centre of the current controversy, as the renders from Zonker in the other thread show.

    You might want to get a bit more up to date there.

    So when the Rules, on everyones admission, have not been followed and you call bullshit, you suddenly have a chip on your shoulder. No wonder the sport is fucked and the sport is full of fuckwits who say that it is all good. Buy yourself a mirror.

    So what you are really saying is that they are about an "Etchells"but not an "Etchells"

    Relevant mould 11 boats are after about 1447 and since mid 2018 So not now it would seem. Even the head of north sails sailing perhaps the most successful boat in history (947) is not in the top 10. Nothing to see here move on!

  14. Bit harsh there DK. But these southern muppets most certainly raced under and obeyed the RRS! That can be a great difficulty for the northern cousins!

    You start with an old Farr 40 OD and get Rob Hick to cut and shut IRC wise. More form stability and less draft
