      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.

    Stolen from the F-boat forum. "I've never met Ian, but he made my life so much better" I love my F28R. Thanks Ian
  2. F18 ownership costs

    F18's eat blocks and lines. Capsizes can easily destroy tiller extensions (and sometimes booms and sails). I've seen a few spinnaker poles bent due to crashes. Make sure the standing rigging and the bolts that attach all standing rigging to the hulls have been checked or replaced. Apart from that.. they are tanks and pretty cheap to run.

    Didn't it become the DNA F4?

    sorry.. just re-read the data.. looks like only the spars are carbon.
  5. Libertist 850 - new tri by Erik Lerouge

    1400 kgs seems a little bit heavy for a carbon 8.5m trimaran. A corsair F28R is around 1300kgs empty

    Great footage!
  7. F28R vs F31R - Speed?

    I think you misunderstood my question.. I am well aware that a 28R is slower than a 31R.. I was asking if a 28R could ever be customised (a la Cheekee Monkey style) to beat a standard F31R.. examples of mods being stripped out interior, more efficient foils, more sail area..
  8. F28R vs F31R - Speed?

    Ignoring the obvious differences that come with size (standing room, enclosed head.. ).. What is the real-world difference (assuming both are unmodified) in speed between an F28R and an F31R? Next question is.. can an F28R be modified to match an F31R?

  10. Hi, I've decided to get a Corsair F31R but I'm struggling to find a surveyor with experience with folding Tris. Any recommendations for San Diego or Venice Beach? Thanks in advance
  11. That's an understatement.. it's a miracle!
