      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.

  4. NEW ASTUS 16.5

    Here, please note that this is the result after handicap. Do you know what handicap the Astus 16.5 has been assigned there? Sorry,I don't know rating number but it' little bit lower than Weta (so Weta is in theory faster than Astus). I'll send elapsed times later.

    This weekend battle of small trimarans SRV Vannes France.
  7. Corsair Pulse 600

    4mm ply; airfoil skin will be 3 or 2.7mm if I can get the latter. Here's the tiller setup and main boom. Also shot of forward deck and dagger position. Thanks, looks like some thought went into it. Are the ply joints staggered from side to side or scarfed? Just asking because spans look >8' Bruno, this is Pulse 600 topic. Start your own topic for Mr Marx plywood monster.
  8. Corsair Pulse 600

    Sounds like fun! Frustrating that some sailors are so competitive that they'd have a collision just because they can. One nice thing about even a small multihull boat like this is that there's not a Catalina on the water of any size or shape that will see anything other than your stern as you pass them. The reason I asked was that - at least to me - price is a huge factor in whether a boat is something I'll own or not. Thank you for the kind words. When I started building my trimaran there simply wasn't anything on the market between the Weta and the F22/Sprint. I even tried to buy a 30 year old Tramp 2500 miles away but it didn't work out. I would much rather have bought one and spend the two years worth of weekends sailing not building. Just nothing available. I was pretty excited to see this boat hit the water. And originally at $35k it was at the top of my realistic budget but still in the range I might have been a buyer. At $50k+ it's just not realistic for me. The reason I am as focused on price is that this market is saturated with $100k beach toys, yet the beach is full of $10k Getaways. About every year for the past 10+ years there's another amazing small trimaran that ends up in the six figure range, sells between zero and 5 boats, and is a market failure. I'd really like to see a market success. This is basically the sub-compact market. Ferrari doesn't sell a sub-compact for a reason. And that's basically why I'm concerned about the price point. Having a great boat that sells 5 or even 20 copies isn't going to be available very long. It doesn't matter how good the design is if they can't sell em. That said - we know what the price is so we can probably quit talking about it. It will be curious to see how this does being $20k more than a Multi 23 and $35k more than a Astus 16.5, which IMO are its two closest competitors. I hope it sells well. It's a great looking boat. Well, Astus 16.5 price is not so low what you think. $15k Astus is with dacron sails, no flying head sail and no mainsail track and aluminium daggerboard.! With all extras the price is more than $28k. suigeri

  10. Corsair Pulse 600

    New nice videos from Viv Manessis team: I think that they should have done better but 4 adults is too much weight for 6 meter trimaran. Although two last races they were almost as fast as the Flying Tiger. suigeri

  12. Corsair Pulse 600

    Hi Suigeri, Disclaimer: I am no film critic. I love videos on this boat, so please keep them coming. However I would like to ask you to please keep the camera pointing still in a particular direction more than a fraction of a second; maybe several seconds. I almost vomited my breakfast. I figured you were probably too excited to stay still :-). I would have been too. Cheers, Sorry Vaplaya, but it's not my video. I just found it from youtube. I have to agree that the camera is moving too much but otherwise it's very nice video. I think that best speed was 14.9 knots. Suigeri
