      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.

Looks to me like a Riviera 60 with some kind of wooden sailing boat in the foreground.

Nice... probably something European, maybe Italian... and EXPENSIVE... and should really be on www.boatporn.us (Yes, that site is perfectly safe, even at work!), not SA?

Its another slow W boat. Looks good but just doesn't have the giddy-up-and-go a race horse should.

Another W White elephant by Donald Tofius. Slow, expensive and will never sell a single one of them... I think somewhere there is Vapourware for a W-100...what a waste of time.

My guess is that it stiffens the construction.. that little pre-bend makes it stiffer and it therefore does not flex upwards when flying the chute

Beautiful boat. What is the purpose of the slight downward rake of the sprit?

I wouldn't know what to do in a cockpit like that - where are the bits of string to trip over?

 

 

ok, what's the deal with the 16 or so strings in the cockpit?

the lines at the front of the cockpit are halyards etc. lead through clutches which are operated by small trigger lines as they are hidden below deck.

the lines coming from the side are led through cleats and are probably trimming devices such as traveller, jib car, mainsheet and maybe vang.

Having seen the boat up close I have to say it was build with attention to detail. AFAIK the hull is cold molded and the deck is composite covered with veneer. The lockers below the seats are completely black from the inside.

I'd be in the market at about $35K. There's probably someone will to pay a bit more than I, however. But 600G? That's just crazy shit. You could buy 3 Beneteau's for that!

It's easy to grin


When your ship comes in


And you've got the stock market beat.


But the man worthwhile,


Is the man who can smile,


When his shorts are too tight in the seat.



Okay, Pookie. Do the honors.

Isn't that from those wonderful people who brought us White Wings and Wild Horses?

Look ! Hardly a bow wave, almost nothing at the midship section, and no stern quarter wave/wake? I am impressed.

Of course, there are no extremities into the water to change the whole gamut of things.
