    Composite Radial Lower

    Now you just have to convince the insurance companies that the words 'carbon mast' don't mean 'no coverage ', or 500% premium increase...

    Yeah probably. But the whole Nautilus 'relationship' breakdown is a good example of longer term repercussions for the end users when things don't quite work out like our esteemed leaders planned. I'd say half the countries dinghy sailors are now either wasting hours on the phone chasing quotes, or simply not bothering to reinsure due to the 200%+ increases in renewals. I suppose it was good while it lasted... i wonder if an ACCC enquiry into insurance companies would uncover much?

    I guess that is a likely conclusion to AS having an insurance company as a major sponsor... We (the paying members) are all winners from that relationship!

    Non Skid that works & doesn't look crap?

    Caster sugar onto 2 pack poly paint. One person rolls/brushes, the other follows closely behind and using a fine sieve liberally spread the sugar onto the wet paint. The more even, the better it looks, but make sure you put plenty on. Once the paint is dry, vacuum then hot water wash off the excess sugar (or just leave it for the ants to eat!

    Sydney to Hobart 2019

    Favourite Richo call this year was 'twist the main more' when it was completely inside out with every batten popped. I can't claim to have ever trimmed a 100fter main, and the trimmer is obviously no mug, but it looked like a bag of shit. Not sure there was much the trimmer could do however, mast looked plenty bent already and simply looked out of tune for the reef.

    Unfortunately, yeah. Looking forward to when we have your shots up and keeping us interested. They are hugely appreciated.

    Here you go, it now has a photo of them for TC to pontificate over their superiority and failures - thread established. Job done.

    ETNZ out of Americas Cup?

    Well, I assume if there isn't thread on SA, then the team doesn't exist!
  10. Did someone post something bad enough to get a whole thread deleted?

    Luna Rossa Challenge. AC 36

    Not doubting he was there early morning, but pretty sure Jimmy finished high school in 1997...

    Curious how the air-sensing wand works... Is it something that ties in with not needing a clew strap?

    Wow - awesome news Pil. Would say I am shocked, but that would be a lie! Call past here on your way down the coast and I'll get some updated photos of it in the river!!!

    Square top and plastic mast track

    Sorry Mozzy - wasn't a shot directed at you! (Although re-reading my comment I can see how it seemed). My statement was more about the sweeping generalisations being made in this whole thread and being summed up by a somewhat unrelated single image of a completely out of trim proto-foiler with a smoke stream coming off it alluding to all the secrets of the sailing world...

    Square top and plastic mast track

    How does it look when you have the jib trimmed and the main not oversheeted? So many variables to make sweeping statements/judgements from...
