      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. Corsair Pulse 600

    Might be a bit of a hike for you Pater however if anyone is looking for a Pulse in Aus, it looks like Multihull Central has dropped the price on one of their good second hand units. $34,500k ONO
  2. Nacra F18 infusion MK3

    I recently took an F18 sailor out for a sail on my Marstrom and his first comment was “I can’t believe how stiff this boat is dispite it’s beam”. Obviously pre-preg Epoxy / Nomex baked in an Autoclave.
  3. Nacra F18 infusion MK3

    That may be so however Stiffest - It wasn’t to start with. Beams and bulkheads also play a part. Is the Mk111 stiffer than the current Edge for example. Strongest - I have seen Infusion hulls pop at the bows when tapped. Have they fixed this. The MK11 was not even close to the strongest. Mk111? Fastest - The Exploder holds that title at the moment. I would back at least the Edge is quickers as well. BS claims by Nacra Europe. You can also put money on it the other manufacturers will also build with Epoxy once the rule is introduced.
  4. Nacra F18 infusion MK3

    Some info from the 2017 minutes. Read clause 12.
  5. Nacra F18 infusion MK3

  6. Nacra F18 infusion MK3

    I believe the class has approved the introduction of Epoxy. Not sure on when the introduction date is however I believe they are also trying to bring it forward.
  7. Nacra F18 infusion MK3

    The Hobie Tiger also won all titles that there were to win over its last years. The stiffest, strongest, fastest platform on the market says the muppets without any evidence to back it up.
  8. Foiling injuries

    But then again, with speed comes further separation
  9. Marley Point 2018 50th Anniversary

    The Multihull Central 760 will be at the Morton Bay Regatta the week after. I am aiming to be sailing the B2B on her.
  10. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    They have not provided Friday streaming for any of the events. Only Saturday and Sunday. I wonder if it is because they are not bringing in the drones and full film crew on Fridays?
  11. Marley Point 2018 50th Anniversary

    NSW boat I raced previously was not available for this regatta. Was hoping to be racing another Corsair there but it fell through a few days ago.
  12. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    Video of damage
  13. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    I hope Euroflex read the above memo before sailing..... Another boat falls apart. Not a good look for the series. https://www.superfoiler.com/news/series-leader-sidelined-after-busselton-blow-up/
  14. Where is Best Beach Cat Racing/Sailing in Australia?

    There are 2 x Pulse for sail in OZ at the moment for $39k. I am sure if you called the seller, they may negotiate.
