    edit sorry just re-read your post.. I'm agreeing with you. Different items scale in different ways because they're operating in different densities etc. Made even more complicated when you have to factor in cavitation. You can't expect nature to scale the vapor pressure of water for you. Far easier and more accurate to keep it as close as possible and eliminate scaling where possible.

    One more time

    30 years since I've been on one but from memory the tramp "interior" will keep your bags dry as long as it is not raining too heavily. Always thought they would be a great starting point for an upgrade. Ama's designed to carry the weight of the boat and 2 more rudders and they'd be killer.

    Comanche sold again?

    Or if the UK ever manage to brexit just do the fastnet race.

    Building an A-class Catamaran

    If you’re just looking to scratch the building itch, build one of these and give it to a local kid then buy an A cat for yourself. That way you both win. http://www.ctmd.com.au/ds12.php

    Former ericsson4/groupama70 VO70 now with foils

    So those photos are a few months old now. Is there any data on how the boat goes? Didn't see it mentioned anywhere but it appears they're old ETNZ foils based upon the toyota logo.

    Black Jack, Nose Job Arse Lift

    its interesting to see how few boats are on that list, especially when you realize a couple are there with multiple names like Banq Pop V / spindrift 2

    I get in trouble from Jen when I let the tanks get down much below 15K (we have 30K total) but I hate it when you get a delivery and it rains.

    plastic sheeting down the hill and a bottle of soap..... always some bindies in the grass at the end that you didn't notice while you were setting it up.

    I bought 15000L of water last week. Does that count?

    Sydney to Hobart 2019

    if the forecast on windy is right, big boat are going to get slapped hard with another drifter at the finish. Could we be about to see the smallest overall winner in years?

    Would be more impressive if the 60s hadn't caught the 100s.
