    I hope it's not an Ouzo-like situation. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/media/547c7053ed915d4c10000083/OuzoReport.pdf

    A big project!

    Yep I think access to workshop big enough to loft the whole boat plus an enviable array of tools would be a big swing factor. Also, I am not a lawyer but I suspect building that boat shed structure in the U.K. would make you unpopular with your local planning department.

    Fastnet 2019

    Offshore I have no problem with (considering the Irish Sea leg is 75NM offfshore in the middle). Ocean is pushing it a bit. CYCA is also guilty of this - RSHYR doesn’t go into Bass Strait proper RKJ delights in calling the RORC the RCRC (where ‘C’ stands for coastal)

    Yes but how much will it cost to put her on a truck to the right coast first? Unless he plans an extended cruise around Panama...

    Carbon lifeline covers/roller

    Are you planning a TP-52 style string system? Would be cool if you could share more details.

    Sydney to Hobart 2019

    But... if you get a 2handed certificate with commensurately lower crew weight your rating doesn't go up. The SSS value will though (for what that's worth).

    If he lived in the UK, Joe average could have a Fastnet eligible boat for under £30k https://www.apolloduck.co.uk/boat/whitbread-30/590115

    Sydney to Hobart 2019

    It’s 650 NM (1300 w/ return delivery), it wouldn’t eat a heavy Dacron cruising main.

    Allow 2-handed entries and you will see 30-36 footers back, just like the Fastnet.

    ‘A smaller boat are easily faster’ 1.34 x root LWL in feet anybody??
  11. Sure, but even on my modest 30’er that box lives behind the instrument panel and only sees the light of day every couple of months when something shits itself.
  12. I hear this a lot, but it’s been around for near enough ten years now and I haven’t yet seen a truly decentralised and permissionless implementation where the blockchain tech adds real value over one party maintaining a database.

    J/99 anyone have info beyond the teaser?

    Purely on STIX grounds the carbon rig will do wonders. Plus this will have a 2m draft versus 1.75 etc etc

    Fully crewed? Pretty small cockpit if so and a small niche to aim a boat this size towards.
