      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.

It's a really messy shop with a poor excuse for tools, making a fugly slab sided thing that a couple of guys will get hard over and claim it is better than a Farr 400, MC 38, or anything else they want to dis at that moment.

Perhaps you should post a pic of your uber creation sitting in your workshop.

 

Failing that don't be such a negative fuck-wit or at some stage in your life you'll find yourself being force fed Vegemite, or worse Marmite.

Ok two observations.

Pointy end is slanted back, more of a multihull style than a monohull.

Second is the hole in the hull on either side parallel to the keel.

Have no idea what this is but am thinking given the above something particularly unusual or multi.

Angle on the front end looks wrong but that may be perspective,

Edit: looked again at the pics. Topsides are slantd back relative to the bow up-down angle. This picture shows the opposite. Shows the bottom extended further than the top of the bow. Doesn't look to be the ss27 based on the pics online but maybe those have changed.

Bugger.

 

Why would you put portlights through the side of a 27' boat instead of through the cabin side?

 

someone is prioritizing form over function.

I'm sorry, but there is NOTHING wrong with either Vegemite OR Marmite...

hahaha...terrible but funny

 

if this really is a SS27, clearly, the SS guys are doing well. Why can't we get the 18 in the US yet?

In the US, you like long&skinny boats and fatass women, while in Europe, we prefer sexy women and fatass boats...

 

+1!!!

why not just get a hunter 707 bung another rudder on, fix a prod, dick about with the keel and take an angle grinder to the deck. oh, and while your at it dig a pair of holes in the side of the hull to magically make the downstairs not shit.

 

1. at least make it rate

2. look how (un) popular the beneteau 210 and 21.7 was with its external lifting keel. If you are going to have to lift it in a boat yard fix the damn keel and be done with it. Having a keel like that just isn't convenient for anyone, take it from me, my Dad is a die hard 'trailer sailor'

3. surely one rudder is going to cost less, give more feel, and not have a dodgy linking system which takes up the back 300mm of the already small cockpit?

 

 

rant over. maybe I need a drink

Funny: Upon a very fast glance, it looked like an enormous foam brush sitting behind/above the transom.

Essentially the look when the keel falls off.

 

 

We wonder who, if anyone, will get this one?

It doesn't look 27 feet long, but it definitely isn't any longer. It's too short to be a Classe 950. Is the outboard well in the right place to be a Seascape 27?

A lift keel works fine on a Hobie 33. The outboard well, on the other hand, is a pain in the ass to be avoided.

Interested in the build, I clicked on More pictures of the build (above) and it took me to this picture, obviously heavily photoshopped. Look at the legs of the guys in this picture...Why would you do that ? what are you hiding by doing that ?

Looks like they wanted to show off the CNC working on the moulding behind. Hope their boatbuilding skills are a little better than those of photoshopping.

In Argentina.

the New Soto 33. The hole in the bottom is to allocate the outboard engine (5hp) which is lifted and the hole closed during navigation.

I sail a Benny 210, never had a problem with the lift keel, but I do lube the jack prior to lifting it, which I do once or twice a year. It does save a big hassle and expense to be able to use any old shitty ramp to launch it. Unpopular is relative- they sold a bunch around the world, it was too small and expensive for American taste. I happen to dig small boats, and PS,the portholes in the hull are a nice touch- they let in lots of light, you can look around on autopilot to make sure you are still right side up, and they make a handy heel index watching the water rush by them from the high side.

I thought their 18 was a nice modern version of the day sailor we have here in the states. I could see my self finding the Seascape18 to be a very nice lake and trailer sailor option if we decide to go that route again. For now its little bitty boats and saving for a nice big rig like a Pogo 10.5 type ride. LOL
