    Bermuda?

    Flap material and thickness is all controlled by the rules. Really no reason to deviate.

    People made the same comments about the last cup boats. Turned out it was just the sun angle.

    Way back when, I stopped by the "Chicken Coup". There was a long skinny boat being built upside down. I asked a young bearded builder what it was and he said "a trophy machine".

    Convex foil airfoils are not new. I've seen lots of them in both Artemis and ORs camps used on both the foiling 40s and the 72s.

    Spithill at 265 lbs? I don't think so. I've been in his presence a number of times and he doesn't have a 105 lbs on me.

    ^ Back in the days we used to buy Maui Style Pototato Chips in California that were the exact same as California Style Pototato Chips in Maui.

    My non J, non sportboat rates 234 here in Nor Cal. Not a multiple of 3. I think most adjustments are done in 3 second multiples. [Pedant maths hat] [Cough] 3x78 = 234 Never mind.

    That's exactly where I am. I like the 88's cockpit seats - my 92 has a dinghy-style cockpit and my wife hates it. But otherwise it begs the question "Is it enough of a step up?" It's a great-looking boat though. I see a bit of Figaro II in it. I better move my 92 back down Bay so I'm ready to spar with the demo boat when it arrives. We fixed the crane.

    Thx for the reply but I don't spend enough time in here to notice who's missing or know why. Worst forum I ever read was the FT10 one when akagp was at his worst.. Hopefully things didn't get that bad here.

    I absolutley love this thread. what a cool boat. I am curious as to what Tom Rays qualifications are. What boats has he designed or built? What boat does he own? Does he sail?

    I get the impression the are trying to do as much as possible in house. This is a boatbuilding class right?
