      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. Karver Headboard locks

    Anyone ever use these or know of a US dealer/distributor?
  2. 'Triple Jack' rebuild...FU Irma!

    Hang in there guys! Good to hear you are biting the bullet and doing the rebuild right. Maybe after all the old racing multihulls of the the area get back in their fighting form (TJ, SOMA, VIRGIN FIRE) we can all get together for a special race, the MIMMS Regatta. Maria and Irma Multihull MashupS is my nomination for the name. Any other boats that qualify that you know of?
  3. Macif / Gabart / Jules Verne 2017-18

    Pay attention guys!

    Dang, if I was going to crash into water, I would at least make sure it was at least more than knee deep! Not that it would have mattered.
  5. Coolboats to admire

    There was a story about the big three masted single handed schooner V13 that in the opening ceremonies at a gala to open the race, the other competitors had taken up a collection and bought the skipper a bicycle for the boat in case he needed to go to the bow...

    Ish Wish you would have a look Ish. I've been skeptical about the benefit of going to the trouble of rotating those spars. Sure it lets them streamline better with the airflow and if rotated a fit further you might get some drive. But how much resultant drive could you expect based on the projected area? There have been a couple of dismastings of these rigs, one at the dock! I have a friend who repaired the one from the dock incident and I tried to get his take on what happened but he was reluctant to say much. My guess is that those wings spars are apt to get into a flutter situation unless they are free to rotate and when tied to the dock and a nasty squall comes up things get wonky pretty quick. It seems that the designer has abandoned the rig as well. Inquiring minds want to know!
  7. Yeah you right Tool! Need to get my eyes checked. I think the 35 would be a nice ride for this race. I have done the Two-Star on a far simpler 35' tri and the Dragonfly would be palatial by comparison.

    Chris White did something similar ages later but with the addition of rotating wing spars.
  9. TF10 foiler... what could possibly go wrong!?.....

    This is for you Wess
  10. TF10 foiler... what could possibly go wrong!?.....

    OK, more than meets the eye I see.
  11. TF10 foiler... what could possibly go wrong!?.....

    Wess, what did you do to DL to deserve this last downvote?
  12. Dragonfly 25 in Open Class will be interesting to compare.
  13. Navy stunt in the sky

    Those west coast flyboys must have gotten the idea from the Pensacola based Blue Angels

    I lived on Chili Rd. in Rochester and a snow racer would have been perfect.

    No way anyone would use Coremat in those foils. That stuff soaks up so much resin and is a cheap bulker that would be totally inappropriate used with that much carbon fiber on such a high profile project.
