    Ha! back to the days of wild experimentation with outline - I love it!

    Lazy Jack & Topping Lift line

    Those of you using dyneema lazy jacks - do you ever find that batten pockets or other sharpish parts of the main pull strands out of the rope weave or does it all hold together pretty well?

    I'd guess that either they can get by with just two cyclos at any one time or that they could keep two each side during heavy maneuvering.

    Shocker by oats but that kind of start has worked for them in previous years. CQS looked messy but will hopefully pull it together. Loyal looked better practiced but still had furler dramas. It will be interesting to see the pecking order emerge this afternoon.

    I saw CQS on the water on Sunday. Its a funny looking thing. They weren't pushing it for speed at the time so it wasn't possible to see how it really worked. The foil was deployed and seemed to interfere at the water surface quite a bit but that may have been because they weren't sailing sensible angles to get through the harbour traffic. Overall it looks like an extreme long shot to think that it might keep up with Oats.

    Low Friction Ring Anarchy

    Not looping around the circumference of the ring is fine for applications where you are only deflecting the line but in the case of a vang where the load is high and the purchase rope is being turned 180 degrees you run the risk of distorting or breaking the ring. I would try to find a way to remove that load which means one line around the outside and one line through the middle.

    So what updates on the flying fandangle? Has it been out yet?

    There doesn't appear to be much difference in height between the foil and stump. They are going to want to keep it in a pretty tight range of heel.

    How many people can sit at one time on the end of the spreader stubs?

    Bloody hell - what a tragedy. The cruising dream ended up being anything but for these poor people.
  14. Just checked local pricing here is Australia. The new supplier isn't exactly massively undercutting torqeedo. Might have to wait a little longer for electric powah.
  15. It's about time another manufacturer popped up in this space. Torqeedo has been out on their own for a long time. The new guys products look very similar to the torqeedo product. Hopefully they will perform well.
