      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.

    Thanks guys, but I still can't figure out how to attach a document (if that's possible) but if you google the following, you will be able to download the full pdf: Carter_30_Halftonner_008.pdf It's great as it describes all the original spec which would be handy for a refit.
  2. Dick Carter design boats

    Just thought I'd update you all. Confirmed she is 30' LOA (the photos do make her look bigger) and after much research I discovered a very interesting document from Carter Offshore Ltd in the UK which I believe describes this boat. I can't attach the pdf here but here's a passage from the document: "Top performance: the new 'Carter 1/2 Ton Race Machine' is based on the hull of the tried and tested Carter 30 which has just started racing in Britain, with a fully fitted out cruising interior, teak cockpit and all the luxuries. She has just cleaned up in Clyde Week with three firsts and two seconds, winning the Half Ton section easily against Scampis, Nicholson 30's, a Northern Comfort and others. The Half Ton Race machine can only do better, with a lighter grp deck, minimal interior and a deck layout designed exclusively for racing efficiency." So I think she must be the 'Carter 1/2 Ton Race Machine' which was built at Northshore Yachts in the UK - great name I suspect there was limited production vs. the original Carter 30. Still very keen to take her on as a worthy project if the numbers add up.

    Yes, I think everything seems to be pointing to the 3/4, not half-ton when comparing all the images. In the flesh she appears more like a 30ish sized boat but always hard to gauge. Will try and run a tape down the length next time I'm in the boatyard and maybe take a couple more snaps of the cockpit and other details. Thanks all for taking the time - and if you ever come across a brochure, do think of me

    That's great, and really appreciated. Interesting comment on the roof so I dug around again in my old archived photos as I knew I had one or two more of her sitting on the water around 3 years back before being hauled back to land and forgotten about. Hopefully with this better angle you might be able to confirm if it's a C30 or not (Competition 30, correct?). I can't seem to find any images on the net that shows this model to confirm myself, so again any help very welcome! Looking forward to going through your blog too, thanks for the link.

    Enjoyed reading through this thread. This half-tonner is said to be a Dick Carter design built 1976 but was hoping someone could verify if it is a Carter? She's in Singapore and neglected now at the back of a boatyard (found this photo that was taken some years ago) and I'm exploring the possibility of bringing her back to life so trying to contact the current owner. Just having a hard time figuring out her pedigree, although I know many or most IOR half-tonners were one-off prototypes. Any ideas? Thanks all..
