    Once you’re fully powered up it is.

    Where do you put your horse?

    Farrier F-85SR

    Not necessarily. it'll be less efficient but if % increase in power is greater than the % loss of efficiency there will still be a net gain.

    Farrier F-85SR

    If you hunt around nz8.5 photos you'll see a lot of 7/8 rigs and big head mains. The 7/8 rig is a good compromise between maximum jib luff/size without blocking off slot for the kite.

    F-16 Viper or Falcon?

    New imoca boats

    Given basically all the new VPLP foilers including Hugo boss fell apart in their first major race they are obviously doing something right with regard to client relations and the rest of the package that the same clients keep coming back.

    How big a square top?

    The 8.5m rule limits mast height to basically what would have been installed on 70s cats. The result is to be fast in this class you need wide low aspect ratio mains and headsails. What is best on an 8.5m isn’t necessarily a good option on other platforms.

    How big a square top?

    You need to remember with the exception of his last couple of designs, the F boats all have quite small rudders. Ian might have objected to the big head based upon the fact it would move the centre of effort too far back and cause weather helm.

    F1 2018...

    Wont be an issue for F1 but it might be for smaller events. F1 will just make the teams deposit into a compulsory insurance fund. Only question is do you refund the funds at the end of the season or invest them and slowly taper out the contributions over a couple of years. If the legislation goes ahead, someone with guts will make a lot of money out of it. Remember this is third party insurance and covers people not vehicles (that would be third party property). So the only people who get a pay out are those injured due to someone else's mistake. What percentage of injury causing motor sport accidents are actually two car incidents?

    Relegation for Bad Sports Teams

    Question from overseas... Is there a lower level American football league? In Australia all the major codes either run "reserve" leagues where your young guys get blooded and your spares stay match fit or complete separate B grade leagues (like the baseball minor leagues). I remember thinking when Jarrod Hayne was trying to break into the NFL with the 49ers that he had the skills etc but needed a year in the "minors" to develop some match smarts. Of course his ego probably meant that was never an option.

    AutoCad fatal error Anarchy

    I got sick of autocad issues running old versions on newer operating systems. Like 99.99% of uses I wasn't using most of the functionality anyway, so I now subscribe to Autocad Lite which is quite cheap from a business user point of view and has cleared up the problems. Other software like Maxsurf where the subscription version is stupidly expensive I get my computer to run in XP mode.
