    ORC optimization

    It’s on a freshwater lake, so salinity better not change!

    The problem with that theory is that hydraulics work the opposite way. It doesn’t require hydraulic pressure to ease the runners.
  3. Actually, probably not. The president and Vice President aren’t allowed to fly together, as far as I know, so he’s probably never flown on it before.

    EC ideas for Hobie Adv Island improvement

    No argument here. I want to use the mirage drive because it’ll also be a summer toy. I’ve got no issues with carrying a paddle as back up. I’m not planning to set the world on fire. I just want to build a neat boat on the same concept while minimizing the drawbacks actual sailors have. I want it to sail first.

    EC ideas for Hobie Adv Island improvement

    Awesome advice! I appreciate it. I love the Hobie as is. It’s an awesome little boat. I just have a pile of parts laying around, so why not build on the concept?
  6. It’s been awhile since I’ve checked into this thread. Is Wess still a whiny little turd that won’t buy a boat anyway?

    Based on previous cups, and the support from all teams involved, I’m pretty sure they could glue a sheet of plywood over the hole and no one would complain.

    You’re asking for an utterly pointless, token gesture.

    Nonsense. An unstable boat riddled with sharp foily bits would be nothing but a hazard. There were support boats everywhere. They came to the rescue. Prada did exactly what they should have. They stayed well clear.

    I do have to say that as an American, I’m gutted by this, but good on the Kiwis for being a class act. In the recovery video you can see their whole sailing team out there helping keep Patriot afloat. Edit: I should thank Ineos and Prada as well.

    Prada Cup

    This is a fucking joke. ETNZ comes up with a cool new design, but decides to force it to race in conditions an old IOR maxi could probably beat it. On top of that they make it a huge pain in the ass to even watch if you’re not in the right country, despite that lying cunt who runs the syndicate bragging about how it’d be free to everyone. I feel bad for the good folks from New Zealand. They deserved a better effort.

    Extended Warranty Phone Solicitations

    The scammers always give an actual callback number. Otherwise the scam is pointless.

    Extended Warranty Phone Solicitations

    No, they usually leave a callback number that’s actually real. That’s the one I use.
