“With the benefit of past experience and recognizing the need to maintain the strictest One-Design standards, the current Council has invested in two new measurers with the knowledge and tools necessary to ensure the strictest compliance with Class Rules.”
Who are the two new measurers? What are the tools? My guess is some level of keel templates/measurement tools exist now - that measure thickness (thinness) at key points and also keel depth at rest. Just because it couldn't be measured/checked in the past doesn't mean it can't be measured for compliance in the future.
What the tech committee are not checking now - can be checked and enforced at any time. If you modified something that the rules did not say you may modify - then you are out of compliance. The technical committee learns and adjusts - you can expect more ways to cheat and more ways to get caught. Right?
I think its great that the class is doing this - keep at it.
THESE RULES ARE CLOSED CLASS RULES WHERE IF IT DOES NOT SPECIFICALLY SAY THAT YOU “MAY” THEN YOU “SHALL NOT.”
