      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.

  1. 2017 Australian Multihull Championships

    Square Top, How much do you charge your crew? I had enough trouble getting free loaders, that I turned into one.
  2. Airlie Hammo Magnetic 2017

    Polite I would say, most of us would, and do go over the top of mono's.
  3. Shane I think you are onto something with the way you had Div 1 & 2 sailing the same course, (even though it was the slowest Div 1 I can remember) to be able to award Div 1 Div 2 and overall regatta champion was great, had there been a few bridge deck cats (non trailables) perhaps they could have contested a for a non trailable trophy and been eligible for the regatta champion as well. Did the Div 2 boats think the courses were to long?
  4. I have been there a few times, always been seperate starts 5 mins apart with shorter courses for Div 2 most of the time. It gets a bit congested trying to give the Div 1 boats room to start.
  5. Actual towing weights of Corsair / Farrier

    Pete it cost me about $4.5k for ss discs, ss calipers, galv hubs and a brakeaway system but they seem to work well. Its probably an overkill if you were to tow after each dunking giving the discs and brakes a chance to warm up and dry out.
  6. Actual towing weights of Corsair / Farrier

    Bigger than you requested but for what its worth, My F 31 weighs 2100 kg, tandem trailer 900 kg, tow with 100 series landcriuser turbo diesel, if you want to sit close to 100 kph expect 20-24 litres/100. The Jeep Cherokee T/D seems to be popular with better fuel consumption.
  7. F-22 Update

    Lafish, we just had our SOMR multihull regatta on the Melbourne Cup weekend. The fleet had 2 Melvest built F 22s, 1 Dash, 1 Sprint mark 11, 1 F 85/82?, 1 C 28, and a F 31. The F 85 was the stand out performer until he had mast problems, but the on water performance speed was very close, I was crewing on a F 22 we had a edge over the Sprint down wind and they had an edge upwind. On OMR we had similar handicaps. In 25 Knots with the kite up it isn't impossible to stick all 3 hulls in but a great little boat all the same.
  8. I'm with you Tony and when we get the rule sorted it will be much easier to achieve. However there was some real confusion at Airlie where we thought there were going to be two divisions and that was even discussed with the Race Committee. The the push came for one division driven to the best of my knowledge by the big Cats and championed by the unfortunate victim of a serious collision. As we were there for fun I just went with the flow as I believe a number of others did. In future my vote will be more considered. Perhaps it time for a split based on trailability, as some of us prefer at the Nationals "Trailerable Div 1 & 2" not that it would have helped in this incident. Probably not enough starters for this, but in the future it may encourage more trailerable's to travel.
  9. Pete, thanks for the ride around the "Whitsundays" did you get "Dux Nutts" back in to SA in one piece? what happened to racing at Hammo?
  10. Corsair Pulse 600

    SCANAS, one extra cost, Corsair normally sells in US Dollars, at the moment one Aussie $ buys about 87 US cents and I am tipping this is about to get worse so there's another 15% on the price at the moment.
  11. Older fast Aus multies

    Low Grove that one wasn't that far away sitting for sale in the Hastings Marina last time I looked, but I think I heard that the owner is keeping it after trying to sell for 5 years or so. Cabsav I reckon your right, looks like a huge off the beach cat (50 ft plus) shame he hasn't entered Geelong week with us.
  12. F-22 Update

    That is correct. I am boat #6 of the production version. I think I now have a new screen saver. Thanks very much! I might be pushing a little here but if you have any more pictures can you please e-mail them to me? I would really like some interior shots to see just how big the interior is with the center board option. Thanks for a great picture. Bill a737man@yahoo.com Try that again This may help keep the interest up 1 airbourne This time may be That's the view I usually have of it, but last Saturday in lightish conditions I had to look at the other side of that big puple bag all the way home and "Daylight Robbery" aswell. Well done guys
  13. F-22 Update
