      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. Proa Why Not? completed.

    rael, nice videos, you have an entertaining way of telling the story! very interesting boat and solutions, will be a blast. You didn't show the sails, what do you have in store? weight? how did you choose the AD scull dimensions? Have you ever tried it?
  2. Teams?

    All teams know the new boat will have to be groundbreaking and will be a mono. You HAVE to go through a conceptual design stage where you sift through all manner of crazy ideas , foil combinations, wing/soft sails, scow/wave pearcing bows, ballast, beam, check what the minis/Imocas have been doing. I imagine every team is in this stage already, not wasting time waiting for the rule. Sure ETNZ/LR will have an advantage, but every design team can get busy right now.

    Wetsuit under drysuit is not how it´s supposed to be, but it´s not the first time I hear it
  4. Rapido 50

    Interesting. Rapidos are built in the same place as SeaRails? moreover, I didn´t know there were any Rapidos being built, thought they were still at #001?
  5. Weta anarchy

    It sounds mostly true, but made me cringe. Wtf is a trimariner?? A niche on a niche on a small niche. Applies also to cats, foilers, skiffs
  6. new trimaran under 20

    Curious about the beams... they look so thin, especially considering the huge RM with the big beam and floats. Can you comment on material and design? I'm impressed, those in the know, isn't 2 years really fast? This is not a simple project. It even folds
  7. SeaRail 19 Folds

    MT, does it have a watertight main hull?
  8. new trimaran under 20

    A homemade pulse600? Nice No gennaker-screecher?
  9. A Cat Worlds Sopot

    Pics or it didn't happen!
  10. Wht havent' multihulls taken the world by storm

    Because the monohulls took the world by storm first
  11. Shipping Containers

    and that freeboard! couple that horrendous windage with the shallow draft and I bet it doesn´t go upwind at all
  12. I think you definitely need to look at the different designs for the Everglades Challenge, or the smaller boats in the R2AK
  13. SeaRail 19 Folds

    MultiThom, you got your Searail already?
  14. Soto 40 parts - mast runners shrouds

    How about the shipyard? should be in business, I saw a new boat launch in May´17. http://www.mboats.com.ar/en/contacto.php
  15. 14' Stunt S9 Foiling Cat

    Charlie, what do you mean? What differences between dinghy and cat make you sum it up like that? Tacking? Stability?
