      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.

    If it was my little review of how the boats where moving in these conditions that sparked this rant; said nothing about the crews - just comparing the boats judged from pics an vids - my opinion.... are you a judge here?
  2. Caribbean 600

    Looking at the pics and vids; Paradox is pure grace in these conditions - Elvis looking good - but not that good. The 50tri - too big floats? Not many footage Seacart30 looking good - but have to go up and down the waves. The F4 seems to semi foil - looking very good throught the waves keeping up with bigger boats as long as they sailed. Fujin - seem to struggle with going in the waves - bridgedeck clearance- lots of water - but going fast - think they pushed really hard... All tris finished just one cat.... The tris was more or less pure raceboats - but SC30 and Paradox has some room.

    This is a good example of what a job this race is on a smaller boat compare to a bigger; it was hell on the SC30 but seems to be a nice sail on Paradox - and hell lasted almost twice as long.... Both was state of the art modern fast trimarans with experienced crew.

    Morticia still sailing - has 170miles and 3 legs to go.... guess the beer and a steak will taste...its some nice pics on the official site...

    It blowing so har that the multis can really use their power to the limit - speed and waves- so it really will be hard for the gear - no wonder things breaks- Monos just cave in an fends off the powers of the wind - it obvious that multis sailed hard in a race will get more problems complex as they are . .... and if it never breaks - its too heavy...

    ... but one expect the level of knowlegde to be higher than this - bec there is really no connection that can spark that introduction - and they really make it worse when they link to the story - so all who didnt know the term can find out. ...
  7. What happened to Zenyatta - Gunboat 62

    Good information here - the builders of TRT1200 told me they used single skin in the bottom - and other round here do the same - to avoid problems with water in core and freezing, and also -if you hit something - it usually is a rock - and its rather common to do that.... and sometime you need to beak the ice... Anyone... whats the cheapest a used Gunboats has been sold for?
  8. Caribbean 600

    Idiotic title that would mean this it was something basic wrong with the construction of the boat.... and this was racing - not "ordinary traffic" - so the title is totally misunderstood.
  9. What happened to Zenyatta - Gunboat 62

    If you not filling the voids but use vacum - and there stills some voids under vacum in the sandwich - that will such in water/air later as soon as you make a hole for montage. The point with sandwich must be to have as much cell-materias as possible between the skins - no voids and nob gaps filled with massiv epoxy - if its not honeycomb. So the cell material must be adapted to the shape to get this result..... isnt that so?
  10. What happened to Zenyatta - Gunboat 62

    As you said - the Gunboats was vacum-bagged - wouldnt that fill the voids in the sandwich - I never see that type but Divinycell as core material - routed at curvy places - and they get filled as far as I have seen. And up here - wet sandwich will not do well during the winter....
  11. What happened to Zenyatta - Gunboat 62

    It totally agree about the early Gunboats - they look much better than anything other similar on the market - even now. And also about the performance.
  12. What happened to Zenyatta - Gunboat 62

    Is that kerfed-core based on wood - or other organic materials? ... isnt quite ordinary that a 15years old expensive cat need a rebuild of the bottom hulls - given normal maintenance? If used vacum for layup - would that last longer?
  13. Caribbean 600

    Seems like Falcon is limping back....
  14. Caribbean 600

    SHIT!! .... a 53 ft cat goes over - that isnt good!
  15. Caribbean 600

    Yea must be something - now Paradox is even with that record then ...... But else tracker is not good - Morticia is late reported....
