    I like the way they've noted the scale on the drawing, some of those random wiggles in the hull and deck lines must be 5 or 6", difficult to fabricate you'd have thought, but somehow the photos show that it's exactly as shit as they imagined.
  2. Hard to say, ask them to explain paying cost over-runs of 100% on a fixed cost contract and still getting sued by the contractors, see which one twitches.

  6. Yeah, don't come near our island. If the bullrails don't get you, the wildlife will. FYI, the cougars mostly congregate around the Swans pub.

    Route du Rhum 2018

    An update on Alex's position.. Between 21:45-22:00 AST on Thursday, November 15th Alex Thomson’s IMOCA 60 race boat grounded at the north end of Grande Terre, just south of the Grande Vigie lighthouse on La Pointe à Claude. At the time, Thomson was sailing at around 6 knots. In order to ensure the safety of himself and the boat, Thomson was forced to use his engine and manoeuvre the boat safely away from the coast. Once away from the coast, Thomson re-sealed the engine and re-commenced racing. Upon closer inspection of HUGO BOSS by the Alex Thomson Racing technical team, the boat appears to have sustained only minor superficial damage. Thomson is continuing on, and his focus remains on winning the race. The team anticipates HUGO BOSS will cross the finish line at approximately 07:00 local time today (Friday, November 16).

    Pfft, you mean you don't have your own trapeze to entertain yourself on those light wind days setting records across the pacific?

    Can you trim the jib sheets in cocktail dress?

    I'd expect more of a look of horror in that case.

    I feel a grudging admiration for that, it's a pretty clever solution and much better than the typical ply and glass shed-like mess that homemade pilot houses usually end up as.

    Looking at the video, anything on that boat can be done in a cocktail dress since you merely need to press a button. She looks bored though, not sure if it's because of the boat or him.

    Lady Slipper? Sounds like a slang term for a vagina.
