      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.

    Yes we only had rudders on the floats which was fine 90% of the time but in days when there was little wind it did cause a few issues

    As a family we moved to Seattle for 7 years and shipped the boat over and played around in the Pacific North West. When George was kind enough not to renew our visas and we were all told to head back to Australia we decided to sell the boat. She was purchased by a guy called Michael Reppy whose goal was to break the record for single handed SFO to Tokyo. The boat was then renamed as Dolphin Spirit http://www.dolphinspirit.org/ and was going to be used to highlight the issue of dolphin killings in Japan..... The last thing I heard was that due to the issues in Japan this year that he put the boat up for sale... not sure if anyone bought it or not, but for the price they were offering a new owner would be getting a lot of bang for their buck. Hey Rohan, i saw it up for sale for around 130K US. As you say a lot of bang for buck!!!!! Yep - still for sale grainger tri Jeez thats wide nearly the same dimensions of a OMRA 60 but 20ft shorter almost square. You would need to be at the end finger in most parking lots. Did it ever race in aus or win any major regattas Yes we did around 8 years racing in Australia from Melbourne to Tasmania and up as far as Port Douglas and we came home with a good swag of trophies for first across the line.... We were also the first boat to break the 1hour 50min bracket for the Melbourne to Geelong Passage Race but that was before they really started keeping records on the fastest time multihulls (Sportscar from here does have a video of it somewhere) - it was a shame that it then took us over 2 hours to get the pick to stay in the ground in Geelong as it affected the drinking time. Like our previous boat Ocean Emu, she could push out speeds in the mid to high 20 knot range hour after hour with very little effort so she would be an ideal boat for anyone who wants to do some short handed racing. From memory the top speed we had was around the 34 knot mark but we all gave up looking at the readout as the boat was quite happy to go faster but we were not so keen on it.

    Looks just as good in green as she did in pink.... thanks for the update photo as I still think if you wanted to cruise the world she was an ideal design for it.
