    The new sailing twin skin setup

    More clarity.... hmmm :<run>: [GroupB Intergalactic Flying Boat] Hull: Loa 5.5(5.35) Minimum stem height 25cm (on centerline, 10cm back of longest bow point, square with balance) Minimum girth height (on centerline, at mast step, hull proper, not inclusive of hardware, square with balance) 50cm Minimum beam of hull .75m (.80m) (square of centerline, widest point of hull, and may not consist of an overhanging surface) minimum beam of stern 50cm (50cm forward from longest point astern, square of centerline) minimum height at stern; 20cm (on centerline, square of balance, from longest point astern) The gunwale lines of proper hull must be smooth convex lines with no overhanging surfaces along its length, this length shall extend from 200cm back of longest centerline stem point to 50cm ahead of centerline stern point. The hull must have at least one full bulkhead, under and at the mast step area No decking outside of a 5cm gunwale (square to rail line) is permitted aft of the bulkhead. Any boxing of these gunwale decks must be square in the vertical. An endplate channel no wider than 30cm in span may extend from the mast step area to half way from the stern point . This plane may be interrupted and reestablished to allow for passage of the lever beam, but only for that reason. An abrupt continuous cockpit must be perceivable A secondary floor may be installed but only to the minimum extent that is needed for cockpit drainage. A kick plate of no more than 4cm wide and 4cm tall may also be installed centerline from the Endplate Channel to the longest stern point Sterns shall be of the open type One horizontal rudder support is aloud to span the cockpit One vertical centerline rudder support is aloud and may interact with the kickplate The hull must contain one and only one vertical strut case. Said case must be wholly in front of mast, and may allow the canting of the vertical strut by (at most) 45deg in each direction of square and center. Canting axis must exist at intersection of center rocker line and the hull surface. A strut cant housing extrusion may extend external of the hull surface, but may not create a hollow in the hull surface. The strut case may have a removable deck cover, and also a drainage hole Center strut must be able to ascend vertically in the case completely to the horizontal foil joint Rig: Rig must be stayed (stays must attach to the beam carriage) Rig consists of one mast and one sail, the surface area of mast and sail constitutes the sail area. If the sail is of twin skin type, then that will constitute a single sale, then only the outside surface will be measured Mast including hardware and boom plate may not be longer than 8m in static condition The mast may not extend into the hull proper Above deck booms may not be employed A boom plate may be employed. The boom plate may not extend past a span line square of center at the stays. The mast may rotate The sail/s must ascend in a track and be secured by a boltrope. Twin skin sails and battens are aloud, the battens of which may interact, the battens may be induced. Pocket luff sails are not allowed. canting adjustment of rig while underway is allowed (20deg per) Rake adjustment while underway is not allowed Lever Beam (Rack) beam must switch sides either through rotation or pendulum motion. May not extend past 1.25m of center (windward) square hardover) May not extend outside of a longitudinal square of the beam carriage (leeward) square hardover) beam may be tramped; may not be more than 1m in length (square) The outer bar may extend 75cm aft past square. This bar may not be “unduly large” May not include extra flotation May not possess “hullshaped” endbars (cheaters) May not possess additional ballast Trapeze may be employed Hiking straps and foot loops may be added and will not be included in measurement Rudder: one adjustable rudder (Must lift vertically(case) May rake. Must stay vertical (no cant) (tiller adjustable allowed) one center vertical, center vertical must orient(hang) on centerline and be in front of mast. T foils only. (rudder and center) One sail; of 11sq max. (c class measured) Mast may not be longer than 8m (from deck)(vertical) no stumps May rotate No “solid wings“(till there are wings). No external control (wand/flap) allowed; tailed center bulbs are permitted. Horizontals may not be more than 1.25m in longitudinal length: No Electronic control no prepreg; no autoclave except foils and foil vertices. Outsourced masts are permitted (for now): Boom plates are permitted. Hull must have an “actual” aft draining cockpit (no pontoons) Materials allowed. Hull: spruce strips for the skins: spruce and balsa infrastructure. fiberglass; carbon; dynema; epoxy; stripper construction Carriage: carbon, dynema, spruce, hand laid (cored) Beam: carbon, dynema ........to be continued <:suspend:>
