      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.

A hull for a near-future bait-and-switch with a tourist visiting Thailand?

The latest experimental aft-cabin Hugo Boss IMOCA 60, viewed through a rearview mirror to make it look smaller and/or farther away than it may actually be.

You know, looking at the scale of that thing it looks pretty small. So perhaps it's Ed's new RC sailboat?

Looks like one of those wave-piercing semi-submersible covert recon boats the British special forces were using a few years back, not sure if they still have them.

It looks like a bow section for a cat hull .

 

Maybe a new one for a cat whose front fell off....

Central hull for a new scale model of a wave piercing trimaran. Similar to Earthrace, possibly made by the same clown.

Don't let those whale saving crazes at it may get rammed!

Some low drag human powered vehicle the SA team is going race against some college punks who don't sail... they got bored since selling the FT-10 and decided to give it a try because the prize money would pay for more beer than they'd won on "Anarchy". If it isn't that... it's a cat hull.

Has all the traits of the center hull of a Marc Lombard trimaran. Maybe an e-glass version of a SeaCart 30.

Looks a bit like one of these? Has similar skeg on the bottom of the hull.

I'm struggling to decide if the ASS-CAT is a joke or not...

 

"V8 is something between sports multihull you cannot sleep in, and the cruising catamaran that you cannot afford."

So I can't sleep in it OR afford it!?

It reads like a Mac catamaran.

I thought it was a sig 45 as well but I agree the hull is to small for that.

Are we going to hear what it is?

Hello all!

 

I'm involved in this project, so I'll keep it short and will not reveal what this is yet.

But here are a couple more shots for your comments.

Most important one is the one with our designer sanding on the deck.

That's his punishment for creating nice but difficult details!

 

A few more clues and some answers to previous comments :

 

Yes, it's the starboard hull of a cat.

She is French.

Yes, this one has mini-keels. Well, the first owner will usually sail singlehanded so he opted for mini-keels instead of daggerboards but we prefer daggers, too.

 

As soon as the proto hits the water, we will start working on the series production.

Fast & fun is the target.

 

Keep on guessing guys :)

Or any other question I can answer without saying what it is?

Hi there Anarchists !

 

I'm the guy "sanding on the deck".. Looks like nobody will give the answer about this design :rolleyes: so here it is !

This is the Pandora 8.50, multi purpose 28' sailing cat, what to say.. ? Sexy, fast, trailerable, versatile, different options packages will allow you to make the best of your sailing conditions and program. She's not the next Anarchy boat yet, but Ed.. that's up to you :lol: !

 

We spent a lot of time on the design of the deck, and created a very spacious cockpit which is flush from port to starboard, protected with a partial solid bridgedeck and very comfortable thanks to the proper cockpit benches and the inboard chamfer adding some beam to the deck.The high aspect beams enclose the space and give a good safety feeling. And you can cover this area between the 2 main beams with a sunshade or a tent.

All controls are reachable when steering, as sailing single handed was one of our criteria, and many smart details will help to make the best of your days on water. The cat is light, carries very nice high aspect ratio sails and the hull shape and rig balance will assure very good performances (ok I'll keep you posted when she hits the water ! ).

Inside there is space to sleep with 4 single (but I think I'd rather sleep on the trampolines :) ), and some options like folding chart table, chemical toilets, small lockers, etc.

The whole thing will be trailerable and also fit in a container, no problem to pack and store you boat in winter ! And of course you can drive quickly to reach new sailing spots.

 

Pictures published on this thread are showing the prototype. Few days ago we pre-assemblied the hulls with the removable bridge deck. The cockpit space between the mast and aft beam is even better than on the drawings, she's looking good (ok I'm a little bit involved so maybe I'm not objective ^_^ ) ! This first boat will feature a rotating carbon wing mast, carbon beams, nice set of membrane sails, and some smart details to make the difference.

 

Website with all the informations is coming.. For now you can follow the project on my Facebook page, and you'll find more pictures and renderings there. She'll hit the water in one month or so in south Brittany, we'll have sailing shots to show you then !

For those who were interested to follow the developments of this cat, here is a recent shot. We are waiting for the painters to complete painting and varnishing.
