    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 .

    F24 mk1 rudder question

    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 sister ship I think, one of three built. The chinaman went off the ex Idec 2.

    Ian Farrier

    Ian Farrier RIP The words leapt off the phone. It took 3 or 4 seconds before my mind could process it. Wait, what? He can't.... Crushed. There are no words, there are no words...

    Anyone done all four boards

    Probably so, I have seen full size posters of that shot, it's a still from a Hobie promotional video named "sharing the wind". The sailor is Dean Froome, it was filmed in Hawaii. I think it can be watched on YouTube, worth a look if you never saw it
  7. It was a Dash 750 I think.

    Stiletto vs Warrior vs Viva?

    I knew the Dr, and I know who saved his Viva after he passed. And now I know who Max is. But I'm still trying to work out who Rasputin is...someone I knew from mid 80 s new Orleans beach cat racing/sailboats south/Colin clark scene...

    Smyth Wingsail via Jim Brown

    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.

    Corsair 760

    760 is not a Dash, and comparing the weight of a 24 ft boat to be sometimes less than the weight of a similar 27 foot boat is not making the point you were intending... Excess weight is a killer in performance multihulls ALWAYS. A gelcoated molded fiberglass interior liner? Pish...

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Too bad they can't imitate some of his good taste in overall boat design...dang that 760 is ugly!

    Corsair 760

    Farrier intended his boats to run at speed with the bows up, and the up-swept relatively flat bottom of the main hull is intended to encourage that. The reason for the sharp V shaped float sterns on Farrier trimarans is so that flotation at the stern of the leeward float does not counteract the tendency for the up-swept main hull to lift the bows. I have not seen a profile of the main hull of the 760, or the pulse, and have no idea of the thinking of the designer with regard to how the shape of the main hull and floats is intended to work together at speed. Could be a case of the designer following modern trends to fat flat bottomed float sterns, and forgetting (or not appreciating) the reason for the vee shaped float sterns on the Farrier designs.
