      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.

    Anything that flys
  1. You are flagging your age before you start the build? And using the word budget like it will be realistic. Fami Sami was a gorgeous build but so narrow her transom dragged 6 inches with a 25hp outboard, i believe Kurt could design a great boat, BUT your eyes are closed. Two cents
  2. Wht havent' multihulls taken the world by storm

    If people spent more time sailing and less time rubbing their ? ego, the world would be a better place. Cheers, Stephen
  3. 2017 Race to Alaska

    make it stop! 2015/2016 team Golden Oldies Be afraid, not of the Orcas or the bears, but of the need to participate. Be careful of what you wish for!
  4. Affordable American Made Catmarans

    Offshore catamarans by Mike Bell builds a beautiful charter cat for a little over $500k.
  5. Good morning Tom, I almost bought a Searail for the race to Alaska and they appear to be a treat to sail, as far as BAMA they are a great group, but people take racing too serious. Cheers, Stephen PS, I would love to go for a demo!
  6. Dragonfly 39 or alternatives.

    Keith Burrage's 40ft Skateaway, just listed on Yachtworld
  7. 2017 Race to Alaska

  8. Wot is this Ocean Cat ?

    Shuttleworth 47
  9. Can anyone ID this trimaran?

    Cox 32 , factory fiberglass.
  10. lots of pictures of my SuperShockwave on r2akteamgoldenoldies facebook, look under photos
  11. Poll: Next AC Boat

    something has to float the boat in non foiling mode, isn't one hull on a trimaran less than two on a cat? of course you would have two tiny amas, also only one rudder is used. there isn't a world class race that isn't owned by a trimaran, and even though catamarans have their niche the America's Cup is about going big .
  12. Poll: Next AC Boat

    What is with this fetish for catamarans, SUPERFOILER TRIMARANS WILL PROVE that trimarans are faster,stronger and even be reusable after the event. throw away boats built on a narrow band are dangerous as hell and catamarans ARE OVER!
  13. Superfoiler test (video)

    Superfoilers ARE prototypes for the next AC Cup. they have super funding, design team of M&M and the circuit is not only being used to test and display the boats, but in search of feedback from spectators and sponsors. Enjoy the show! Cheers, Stephen
  14. 2017 Race to Alaska

    I have the perfect platform to win with a kite,peddle, rowing configuration, 25X14 Morrelli/ Melvin little America's Cup catamaran, all carbon, light, Phrf -65, extremely stable. I am too old for this one, Stephen r2akteamgoldenoldies multihuler@aol.com
  15. Multihull Team with Radical boats

    Jump starting the adventure, written in the sand on the beach. the future Hostel /crews quarters are a 43ft Cross trimaran( one of two available )) she is currently in Kentucky lake, has 5 berths in three separate quarter's, 50hp yanmar, enclosed bridgedeck, two showers, large galley, diesel genset, air conditioner (low on freon), radar, and huge frig/freezer. She needs to go up the Mississippi to Chicago, through the lakes, stopping at the Toronto multihull club, then Erie Canal, NYNY to North Carolina. lots of cleaning, gorgeous interior and will fix whatever needs fixing under way. She can depart July ? and would like to get to North Carolina for the First Ever "Sail like ya stole it multihull rendezvous" around November 1st. the second crew quarters is a 38ft Open wing Harris trimaran in Yarmouth Maine, excellent sails, her engine bed is prepped for the new 27hp Yanmar, I will install new tramps and paint touch up .she could easily be ready in two,three weeks to also head down the coast for the rendezvous, but no hurry. the Antrim is 1/2 on the east coast and 1/2 on the west coast, she likes 55knots so it is more of a question of getting the crews quarters ready before picking her up, she is available in a partnership BUT would only use the money to pay for another racing trimaran that is already picked out. CRAZY ENOUGH! Sometime after the rendezvous, I would take the fleet to the Ft Lauderdale, Key West race, then? Cuba and/or the Bahamas or? Can it be done? I am planning on a budget for hardware/boat related gear and hope to get sponsors for entry fees etc. I AM CURRENTLY A ONE MAN BAND, so I hope to find capable crew to run a few boats, eventually at the same time. why so many boats? it is fun, the more the merrier? just want to try to share something I can't explain . the hostels will be support and media boats. RACING Ft Lauderdale Key West requires a minimum of 4 in a crew, so there is plenty of room for deserving crew members. logistics ; sail in legs allowing easy on and off, one way rental cars are $100 a day, so it is not expensive to jump ship. GOM or Golden Oldies are a great group of European members that keep vintage racing multihulls alive for future generations, they are my mentors. I do not OWN any of these boats, I AM THERE CARETAKER! these are available to ANYONE THAT CAN PLAY WELL WITH OTHERS AND BELIEVE IN "Karate Kid" wax on wax off. will it work? I am leaving Reno Nevada in the next two weeks, I will post daily positions and additional updates in the attempt . Additional race and support boats are available depending on participation. Whoops, most important , once the support boats are in place fun racing/ training will be the theme of the commune, at this point there will be two boats,phrf -65 and -75 one cat, one tri to match race against, honing one skills in the search for profound existence. WE SHARE OUR TOYS AND LIFE IS NOT ABOUT THE MONEY! Hope to see you and support a dream or two. Stephen ps, I have the 2018 R2ak winning boat , but boy she needs work, if you have the time I have to boat, she will outsail a f31 and easily out row her
