      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.

What are you talking about, Ed?

 

Had previous posts not been deleted, you would have known that I never commented on this topic.

 

You are mistaking me for Christian, with whom you had words in this regard.

doooooouglas....get some of your ATL rednecks on this boat!!

 

On the down low and KEEP IT SECRET ( unsure.gif )... I've got two guys kicking around about this boat right now... one of them was one that I did not expect to be that interested. Heck... we may end up with 5-6 of these rascals on the lake by the end of the year.

 

Going to be one heck of a series down in PNS (sorry for the pitch... we'll... not really that sorry! cool.gif )

If you’ve never sailed Flying Tiger…

 

100th Race To Mac - Sunday 12:30am 36 hrs into the race: TWS = 20kts; TWA = 100 3-5ft seas

One of my best friends is on the helm for 35min as I take a rest. After his first slip out of the groove and a spinnaker snap back into flow, my attention was caught. After the second slip he asked the rest of the crew, whose next and one says, “I’ll try”. He responds – “No one is ‘trying’”. I respond that I’m Fresh and will be up in 3min. Pure joy for the next 2.5 hrs 20-25kts 3-5ft seas. … 9 surfing gybes without apparent wind at 9-13kts boat speed.

 

The Flying Tiger has a great grove. Bob Perry has designed a finely balanced racing machine.

 

Interested? Call 312 375 1696

Have a friend looking for a boat in Australia, this Chicago boat looks like real value.

Can the mast be broken down for transport, if it has been properly glued then it would not come apart.

One idea, does anyone want to buy a mast section and a trailer, the rest should go back into a container.

We could get a new mast sections from CST Sydney. Just ideas looking for suggestions.

Could this be another boat for WA?

yes..it would be good to get another into RPYC.

However, shipping a mast outside a container would kill the possibility.

 

You could cut the mast through where it was joined originally and then grind out the sleeve (think about training wheels/depth guide on a grinder)... the replace the sleeve to reattach it. That way you are only up for a new sleeve. You will find that the sleeve will only be partially glued as a lot of glue falls off when it was inseted so it will not be as bad as you think. On the trailer if there was a cheap way to ship it to Sydney I might be interested.

When the boats absolutely, positively have to be there overnight.

How much is postage for that one?

 

Seriously, I am interested in investigating this if you guys are:

 

Ship a Tiger to Australia - How and how much?

Ship a Trailer to Australia - same

Mast - New from CST or cut & ship.

From what I have heard they are keen but only if it will go back into a container as there is to much risk in deck cargo.

If you look into it for them it might be worth it.

Repackaging the boat into a container is a costly affair since the shipping cradles have been discarded (although I managed to salvage one of them).

 

Then there is the problem with cutting the mast, and the trailer will certainly not fit into the same container.

 

A better option would be to try to ship the boat on the trailer with the mast on top as deck cargo. Perhaps it can be shipped in an open container on the vary top of a container ship.

last time i looked at shipping boats from the states you could ship about 5 containers to oz for the cost of ro ro for a boat as big as a tiger

plus inevitable damage

my suggestion would be to try and get an open sided container and cut the undercarriage/ tongue off the trailer and use as an upright cradle, might just fit

these will need replacing for australian standards anyway (a good guy to talk to about this is Rob from Robs trailers in Perth 0412730898 he rebuilt an ally import trailer for me a couple of years ago)

i would look at Uship for the mast as a whole unit might, be a cheap way there

 

just remember if the trailer has a vin you have to get import permission from canberra prior to landing and this can take a couple of months, or it will be either held at your expense or destroyed

 

specialised boat importers are another really good idea, they're pretty cheap and have insurance!

Due to the temporary overvaluation of the $ AUS, why not buy a new boat and be done with it?

 

because it's cheaper and easier to buy the boat i have for sale in sydney. good tidy boat... great buy . im keen.... so email me on martinhunterjones@bigpond.com ...heaps easier and cheaper than getting one shipped from the other side of the planet

enjoy

Thanks for the input, and the pms.

Sadly the prospective customer beat us yesterday, the first time for months, in his overweight 11mod. It was tricky..we got the snakes and he got the ladders! Now he his so happy with his race that it will take another few weeks before his continual wet arse will make him think of the comfort and speed of a Tiger again!

Meanwhile the suggestion of cutting the mast at the upper join seems best, a new internal sleeve fitted. On the container side, canvass covered open top 9ft 6in High Cube containers are available, Load the Tiger on its side by crane with a few matresses. The trailer could be attacked with an angle grinder and the bits loaded in the front of the box.

why mess with an angle grinder ? ( maybe for the odd bolt that has decided to seize up ) The trailer is totally bolted together, it can be completely disassembled if needed. Equipped with an impact wrench (air) the trailer could be reduced to the 2 frame rails and a pile of parts in an hour. The hardest part would be labeling all the parts.

 

The sleaved mast joints can be loosened, I have loosened them and know of a couple of other instances where the sleaved joint was loosened. It can be done. At a minimum cut the sleave at the joint and replace it with a new one from CST. ( surgery by hacksaw ) The sleave can be sleaved, if the original sleave will not loosen after surgery, CST can supply a sleave for the sleave.

BETTS RUDDER - I WILL GIVE A CREDIT TO COVER THE COST OF THE BETTS RUDDER.

 

 

Here are more detais:

From Eric S - Just wanted to remind everyone that the discounted rudder pricing will be ending shortly for the first batch of rudders. Jim Betts has offered to extend the discounted pricing for a short period of time following the AGM. After this time period the discounted offer will no longer be available unless a quantity of 10 rudders are ordered. Just to be clear, the discounted pricing will still be available in the future however owners will need to pool together to make an order of 10 to acquire the discount. Because of this a second group purchase is recommended in the future but the time frame is unknown at this stage. If you are hoping to use the new rudder for the 2011 season it is recommended that you secure your discount and build slot with a deposit.

 

Now is the time to step up to the new rudder and save. The rudders are currently discounted 7-10%. Orders and contact info can be found at the links below:

 

http://www.jbeinc.com/store/ft10_deposit.html

 

If you have any questions regarding the rudder and pricing please feel free to call Jim. So far over 15 rudders have already been spoken for.

 

Sincerely,

 

Eric S

WOW!!!! $94,000 for a FT10 built in China!!!!!! Crazy..... I guess a USA Built Mumm/Farr 30 is a bargain at $110,000

It's still a bargain !

 

Why the surpise ?

 

NO new boat prices ( or the price of anything ) are not what they were 5 years ago. Check the price of everything that goes into a boat... ALL of it costs more... No one wants to admit it, especially the goverment, there is serious inflation around.

 

Pre owned boats are the best bargain going.... MUMM 30 / FT 10
