  1. And an old navel at that. Probably full of fluff.

    Hanuman for sale

    Clark might just be serious about this sale. He has stopped racing the boat. If anyone is interested Clark has re listed his Palm Beach pad for sale at a mere $95m. Cheap. He opened two years ago at $137m then reduced to $115m then to $95m. He will battle to get $75m but doesn't seem in too much of a hurry.
  3. 20 mins from Manly to Pittwater ? ? ?

    Does the waitress count as a pro ?
  5. There are landings on both Inishabro and Inishvickillane. You would probably have to anchor a little East off the NE corner of Inishvickillane and then go by dinghy. The breeze has to be in the West. The landing on Inishvickillane fairly close by is a small beach on the NW corner.

    Maybe it was a bowman who ran off with Juan K's girlfriend back in the day. He still hasn't gotten over it.
  7. Dingle is a lot of fun. It has the best pubs in Ireland although they are a little pricey. Allow plenty of time for driving because all the best roads are narrow and winding. You will spend plenty of time only doing 30 - 40 kph. It would be quite easy to spend a week going from Galway to Dingle. A couple of days on the Ring of Kerry would also be worthwhile. You WILL need a raincoat.

    I don't get the retractable prop idea either. That's more expen$ive complexity that you really don't need plus a fancy gizmo that will cost money to fix. If class rules require everyone to have the same S drive then what difference does it make ?

    Moving that board across through tacks is going to be quite a feat. The boat will be quick to tack and the crew moving the board will have to keep up before it loads. Not easy. On top of that the engineering of the tacking system will have to provide very low friction to give the crew any kind of chance. Easy to talk about but hard to deliver.
  10. They scrub the hull, swab the decks, crank the winches AND drink tea from a cup and saucer. What's not to like ?

    Good grief ! Phil AND Mel on the same thread at the same time. That hasn't happened since 2008 or thereabouts. Who the bloody hell is minding the store ?

    They have not even started building the prototype yet. Things will be very quiet in this class for quite a while. 510 kg weight limit for 6 crew. Tough call. At least it means a certain person from Marblehead won't be buying one.
