    No doubt. That Syd-Hobart win with First National was pretty much the last nail in Farr's coffin. Tenacious' Bermuda win was equally as damaging to Farr's reputation. Those Farr penned Beneslows are/were total dogs.

    "Sane heads"? Yeah, like the dude that opined the boat must be a disappointment because nobody in the pics was smiling. Brilliant analysis. Why even bother sailing a new boat when you can tell all from the faces of those in the promo pics? Others are shocked the boat does not seem to plane in 7 knots of wind, at least according to the pics. The clew on the jib is cut a bit high, so clearly this boat is just much of the same old bullshit J has been pimping for years. Stunning analyses by "sane heads", one and all!

    The boat looks great. Well done. We'll have to see how fast it is, but this most definitely is not just "more of the same". If you naysaying turds didn't know this was a J Boat you'd be creaming your shorts.

    I can't fucking believe I can "lay the smacketh down" like I did and remain unchallenged. Un fucking believeable. As an aside, any of you older douches remember the Irwin 43 "Razzle Dazzle" of SORC fame? Total Guns 'N Roses.

    By the way, Kialoa V, one of the most beautiful IOR maxis ever built, was completely butchered by Pendennis shipyards a couple of years ago. She was bought by a tobacco company, painted red, and given a pathetic looking deckhouse. A real shame.

    Clearly you are a young fuck who was not around in the heydey of IOR. Kialoas III to V were IOR designs, and damned good ones. Ondines III to V were IOR as well, although they were not great designs and not nearly as successful as the Kialoas. Before you young shits spout off about the lame IOR designs, I should remind you that many, many international race records were held by these "pigs" for decades, beaten only by $25 million canting keel supermaxis (10 to 20' longer than their IOR counterparts) with full professional crews in ideal conditions. Most IOR Maxis were 78 to 82', had amaeteur goons as crew, and were things of beauty. Beasts to sail, especially downwind, but they were not glorified powerboats like the 30m supermaxis of today. Remember the days of 6 to 10 full on maxis at any given international regatta? Remember the days of a dozen or more 50's lining up against each other during the day and their BN's smoking weed and fucking whores all night long? No? I didn't think so. Piss off. Who really gives a shit if a leadmine goes 15 knots or 25? It's all slow anyways. What matters is how you achieve the speed you do, and the IOR boats did it in bling bling bitchin' style. Everybody, and I mean everybody, had fun in those days. Full stop.
