      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. what is it?

    Leopard?
  2. Multihull Cup

    US7070- hit the nail on the head. The concern is the fun element is disappearing. There will never be a perfect or fair rating system..the spectrum between how boats approach, prepare, spend money and pros vs friends is too large for it ever to work..let's bring back some fun. Personally I love battling it out with CoCo and Elvis and Zen!

    Karma...Name and shame!!
  4. Chapter 11 for Gunboat

    WhenInRome sounds like a competitor/ brand to me trying to discredit? Who else would attack/ troll and post an email chain on a multihull forum when all the answers from Soma are honest and to the point. Looks like WhenInRome is digging for information! If the other boats are viable solutions go and buy one of the other brands. People like WhenInRome give this industry a bad name and personally I hope they are never a part of any multihull new build. If you are a competitor shame on you. If you are man enough call GLY or Nils?

    WhenInRome - As a GB Captain for over 5 years I follow these posts from a distance. Its a shame when someone comes on and try's to ruin a forum. You obviously has no idea what you are talking about and I am happy to say having known Soma for a number of years I don't think there is anyone more qualified to help produce a great boat. If you had ever been sailing with him or held discussions with him you would know he is extremely knowledgeable, passionate and has more intelligence than you will ever have. Do us all a favor.......Take a hike....

    Boat looks great. Interesting to see performance vs Older style GB V HH Looking at FB Crosswaite page the B&G numbers appear a little off. Looks like a mast rotation calibration/ settings issue. There does appear to be a volume difference in the bows where the Irens boats tend to dig in on the leeward hull creating more drag. Comparing to the other 55's they have pushed this harder than any of the other boats on Day 2 which I'm guessing is a huge positive. With HH boats on the water, GB now making big strides it looks like an exciting time for Multihulls. Bring It On!!!
  7. Gunboat 66 – the ultimate fast cruiser?

    May I add that Tribe still is a cruising boat with the ability to go fast! For a 15 year old boat she is still extremely impressive!!
  8. Mouse Trap dropped another one

    Dismasted boxing day 100m offshore from Cayman Islands at night en route to Panama. No one injured but boat badly damaged. Boat is enroute to SD.
