    Looks great fella, shame about the tack then the fenders over the side, on our boat we shout the bar if that happens! Top job(for a shipping crate)

    1.i didn't mean stiff as in physically. i was talking about no weight on the bottom ie. tippy as hell 2. the rudders are like 2 feet long. tiny. 3-4.the boats bow up/stern down so it doesnt trip over itself surfing down 2-3metre waves (and it trys to as it is) it feels like it wants to nosedive all the time- no buoyancy in the bow sections 5. possibly, thats what i was thinking. 6. lots of extra drag for another appendage (4???) 7. $$$$$ cheers PS it doesn't matter about habdicap anymore, the boat has been rejected by the ASBA and has not been granted an exception to the 6m rule (we knew it would happen) Looking at the handicaps finally from Geelong, i550, .771 Elliott 7 .777. That was never going to be kind to you..... Like I said earlier, save it for downwind races, Bay to Bays and the like, have a holiday come up 1st weekend in May!!! Well worth the trip.

    Tokyo realised this early on, he only enters races that are all downwind(S2C, Wintersun, Bay2Bay) It does ok in these races, in any other race he entered where there was a windward leg he was back with boats like a Castle 650... To put it bluntly, they just do not go upwind.

    Is the rumour true that a Hartley 16 beat an i550 around a race track without flying a spinnaker
