    F24 mk1 rudder question

    Which materials are lighter? The gel coat? The foam core? The single layer of glass fiber per skin that constitutes the majority of the skin area? Vinyester resin? The aluminum in the folding system? Interior molded liners? Bigger floats are heavier than smaller floats. What about easier setup? The older non rotating mast were easier to setup? I don't buy it, rotating rigs are very easy to step with much less fussy rig tuning once it's up .

    Please elaborate on what changes have been made on new Corsairs and how those changes improved performance and ease of setup. Thanks

    F24 mk1 rudder question

    Looks like a stock F24 mk 1 rudder, just like on all the 150 or so other mk1 built.

    A number of years ago someone ( Ben Hall I think) built an A cat wing sail that Randy spent some time sailing, that's probably what you are remembering. I don't remember the wing being any great speed break thru.

    Red, that´s very interesting. I checked the website and says nothing of (keel-less) sailboats. How did you make sure that the floats sit on the surface, but not so much that they take the load off the center hull? In the water this happens naturally. The floats are not designed to support the full weight of the boat while folded. Why do you say that? I thought that the Farrier folding system was used It's an unlicensed unapproved copy of the FFS with some changes. In any case, the FFS is not designed for the floats to carry much weight when the boat is folded. When the boat is folded and on a trailer proper bunk board setup has the entire weight of the boat sitting on the main hull, the float bunks should be making only light contact to balance the boat and should not be carrying any weight.

    I found this gem from bhyde from a year ago in a different thread that I don't usually follow, while searching for something else. It seems appropriate and timely, so enjoy Posted by bhyde on 07 April 2015 - 10:23 PM in Multihull Anarchy Hey Chris O, I've sailed, owned, and raced with many of Ian's products and I like them. Can't remember the last time I've sailed one of yours. Oh wait, that would be never, because you and that other insufferable dipshit wannabe Doug Lord just sit around all day and draw doodle art while other people are actually doing something. Do you even own a boat? Ian builds boats and you've built exactly diddly squat. Why don't you go to the bank, get some money, and show everyone what a great designer/boat builder you are and save the sailing industry. God you're a turd.
