  1. If I remember right, it hit either Goose Rock or the Varvassi during the '95 RTI

    What custom cruiser...if money were no object?

    Depends what I was going to use it for, but either a Garcia 45 or an Outremer 45.

    What is it - hot / cold molded dinghy

    Doesnt look like a firefly, they have a much more pronounced transition between stem and keel.

    Inflatable dinghy anarchy

    My brother has one of these http://foldablerib.com/product/f-rib-330/ with a 6hp outboard and is very happy with it - he thinks it does about 18 knots one up and 14 with 2 average size people. You might be able to fit the 275 on your foredeck.

    My sons $1 dollar boat gets a re-fit.

    I think the Fairey Atlanta did a pretty good aft cabin within 26 feet in the 1950s.
  6. Arguably the PC -after deciding the technicality - could have asked MR if he still believed his declaration was true and to consider RAF pending which they would consider r69 protest....
  7. YeAh I get that but somehow I think the bar is higher for a protest based on wilful dishonesty rather than simple non compliance with the SIs - I’m suggesting that for issues other than boat on boat breaches, the technicality that WO got off on be eliminated.
  8. I think the marker for going forwards is that for offshore the RC needs to give themselves the right to protest competitors for situations like this irrespective of reports from competitors - this really needs to be on the RC to monitor.
  9. So why turn it off in breach of the rules if they didn’t think there was an advantage (for example, if a split developed)?
  10. That’s like saying my biggest spinnaker didn’t measure but hey, it doesn’t matter because I didn’t use it.
  11. BJ should hang heads in shame for screwing that up. But instead WOXI will be buying their beer.
  12. RC should have been braver. Terrible day for sailing as a sport.

    Pilothouse For Puget Sound, $40K Or Less

    If I had to have vertical furling main, I'd only ever go in mast, not an external furler. But I'd get rid that as soon as I could in favour of stackpack, lazy jacks and full battens (different thread).

    I'm not sure anything with that mainsail arrangement is going to sail well....

    Joke

    I rear-ended a car this morning. So, there we were alongside the road and slowly the other driver got out of his car. You know how sometimes you just get soooo stressed and little things just seem funny? Yeah, well I couldn't believe it... he was a DWARF!!! He stormed over to my car, looked up at me, and shouted, 'I AM NOT HAPPY!!!' So, I looked down at him and said, 'Well, then which one are you?' And then the fight started.....
