    Older well known IOR Boats

    According to Green's book, Lowell North was an integral part of the program and lobbied HARD for Green to go with Doug Peterson for the design. After the boat showed to be so slow at the SORC Green himself asked Peterson to consult on the project.
  2. Why don't you ask a designer who designs winning boats for the class you intend to race in? By the way, Stealth Chicken is not fast. That boat was designed as an IMS boat, and was totally uncompetitive whenever it sailed against other IMS boats. A brutal turd.

    The worst thing about a POS like this is when it becomes a bad influence on a student of yacht design..
  4. Many designers were using fin keels and spade rudders as far back as the 1890s, and probably earlier. Herreshoff, Sibbick, Watson, Fife, all the big names. Claiming someone in the 1950s started the trend is as dumb as some ahole claiming he designed the first performance cruiser in the 1970s. https://www.facebook.com/charles.sibbick.interest.association

    But not someone's bitch-boy, like some of you.

    Big boys? Like You? How do you have any self respect? How do you self-castrate and subjugate yourself to such an extent seeking approval of some other man? No real man does such a thing. if you ever obtain any self awareness and see how you look you will die from embarrassment. Something tells me your whole life has been like this, so not much chance you will ever get it.

    My chops are showing you just what a Beta you are. Jeez, just look at yourself. Noted you haven't asked anyone who bagged on Lapworth to "show your chops". It is obvious you would get right on your knees if Perry commanded. Wake the fuck up and be your own man. Or don't.

    So you want people to only show up on a strict schedule to hurl shit and abuse on a thread that is all about hurling shit and abuse? Why have you not objected to others hurling shit and abuse at great designers like Lapworth? You are just another cocksucking Beta, or lower.

    Naw. Some of us have lives. It's easy to find Perry boats that are ugly. He designs cartoons of the Edsels of the sea. Low IQ folks love that stuff. Look like the boats that were in their preschool books.

    Noted you have not attempted to defend that ugly POS of a boat.

    You would have to have a disability to pay a designer who drew that POS for you. Hey, there's something dribbling down your chin!

    "Hollow bow entry sheds any water from a wave and keeps the bow up"? Just to score points with the guy whose cock you love to suck you will just make up silly hydrodynamic theory? My, I thought you were a Beta, but even that would be a step up for you. Just look at yourself! A man would be ashamed. Ooooh, the sheer and the sheer stripe are parallel! Doesn't that just make up for this POS hull and deck? Guess that stripe makes the boat a wonder in all conditions!

    "nice hollow in the bow"? You know nothing about yacht design. 'good sheer"? What the hell does that mean? An aft mount for the dinghy engine is one of the big positive points? Are you kidding? Nothing you mentioned overcomes the tragic hull shape and ridiculous deck layout. It is simply a POS design.

    PHRF is not run by self-interested clowns

    Sure. And just how many years was this no good person in charge at PHRF SoCal with the rest of the Board going right along with his bullshit? Wasn't he involved in some other Board deliberations just this year, as some sort of consultant? It never ends with these PHRFools.
  19. Not true. If a boat like an FT10 changes their rudder to one that is much better they don't get hit at all, if there are FT10 owners on the Board.

    PHRF is not run by self-interested clowns

    Yet you continue to claim you have been rat fucked by PHRF. Sounds like your preparation was for nothing. Do you think the fools on the Board read your 19 pages, or used any of it in their decision making? Did they provide you with a 19 page report saying why they decided as they did? A one pager? One paragraph? No. They just gave you your number with no explanation and sent you on your way. There is no accountability for the decisions by that group. Putting anything in writing would make the JA lose his mind.

    PHRF is not run by self-interested clowns

    Race results are not DATA, with regard to a boat's true potential. Yet this is what PHRF uses to make their decisions. It is not the responsibility of the clubs to provide info to PHRF. It is the responsibility of the Owner to provide info when asking for a rating review. All PHRF Meetings are not open to all certificate holders. PHRF SoCal does all their deliberation in secret, where they can say anything among themselves and make their decisions based on anything they want to, no data from them required.

    PHRF is not run by self-interested clowns

    That is the theory. Not the practice. PHRF SoCal doesn't understand this, even though it has been written into their rulebook forever. Members will argue this point with you. The fools there can't hope to beat Vince Brun in any one design boat, but somehow think they should be able to under PHRF. What a joke. The SoCal Board can't evaluate sailing ability, boat prep, or inventory because most of the Board don't ever see most of the boats that come before them. They make decisions based on RESULTS, NOT OBSERVED PERFORMANCE. Not to mention most of the Board are just fucking terrible sailors who have no idea how to prepare a boat, or what good sails look like, or what good sail trim looks like, or what the term tactics might refer to. For years their Chief Handicapper would race his boat in One Design and sail around the course more than a minute a mile behind the competitive boats. How can someone who is that bad do a good job evaluating any other boat? Most PHRF Boards are populated by similar idjits.

    The author was pretty much an idiot, as most writers for sailing magazines have been. The gybe problem would most likely be a problem for neophyte sailors, just the kind that were likely to buy Perry boats. So there is some validity to what was written. The real issue was the weather helm problem the boats had. Cutting down the E helped, but not enough. Later it required the bowsprit too. Big design fuck up.
