      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. what about for point to point type offshore races where there will be reaching legs? Just wondering how it would handle with a masthead asso, slighly longer pole and ability to pole back. I realize for deep running W/L's the symmetrical kites would be the ticket
  2. 1.5' sprit with an oversized pole to match and go to masthead kites.....that's what I would do
  3. This was dirty Dave's boat back in the day. The boat lost its rig and they replaced it with an Antrim 27 rig. New owner threw some money at it but never did much with it. From what I remember the rig would not hold rig tension because the chain plates at the bulkheads kept moving and needed structural mods
  4. Catalina Yachts.....they did some tweaks and put the boats back into production around 2003 and should have a rig similar or close to what you could use.
  5. Unfortunately I don't believe SF has seen the potential yet of a well sailed FT10. No offense to the owners up there but the one you are using in your results has never sailed in a OD event. The level that the upper ends of the fleet sail at in SoCal and the PNW are more on par with what eightball did in your example. Really doesn't make much sense to compare the boats unless you have equally talented teams. Not to knock any of the boats I think the J/111 is a great boat.
  6. keep in mind we have a 3 rating system in SoCal. The delta between the bouy rating and the offwind rating is greater depending on the downwind potential of the boat. The J/111 was given a provisional temporary random leg rating for this race only since it doesn't have an approved rating yet. If the boat ends up rating 30 Random Leg then it most likely would have a rating in the 36-39ish region for bouy. I believe this was also the owners first race.
  7. What is happening in a few days? Is this the 1D35 Turbo EWS is eluding to? The story is featured on the SA home page this AM. Cool project... https://picasaweb.go...kgE&feat=email# But didn't the J111 KONTIKI 5 beat the 1D35 REVOLUTION in Key West (albeit the 111 had a 42 vs the 1D's 36 PHRF)this year? Rag Bag's 111 is rating 36 here in SF...not sure what a 1D35's PHRF is here... According to norcal phrf 36 with sym 42 with assy There were two 1D35s in last weekend Corintian Midwinters, one rated 36 (standard) and one rated 21. Neither one hung with the 111 on elapsed time, and we were sailing no where near our race potential for various reasons. I don't know what mods the 21 rated boat had. The 21 should be the old Double Trouble. Square top main but with a shorter prod and OD ISP's
  8. the boat has been rated at 33/27/18 in Socal without the square top main & 30/24/12 with the square top. Didn't mean to derail the J/111 thread so please continue on
  9. What is happening in a few days? Is this the 1D35 Turbo EWS is eluding to? The story is featured on the SA home page this AM.

Rag Bag's 111 is rating 36 here in SF...not sure what a 1D35's PHRF is here... That's the boat I was refering to. Obviously not much 1d35 in it anymore.
  10. It would be the 1D35 Turbo.....few days and it will all make sense
  11. ya but I had to mute it after about the second "puff on".....I'd be searching for that button if I was on the boat
  12. keel bolt backing plates cut away....stainless tube runs to the deck with an internal G10 rod....pretty standard practice these days
