      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.

One of those little sporties the Russian guy has built. 15-16ft with headroom to sit down below.

 

Been on the FP before.

The windows look like the old skippy 500, but this looks a little bigger. Maybe its a new version, the hatch is definitely different and the 500 did not have a backstay.

A radical new conept using six foot high freeboard to effectively double a 20' boat's SA/D, and keep the crew really, really, really dry?

Bite your tongue, huge insult to the Crapi 22. The side rendering looks better, but not much.

and you folks thought the Catalina 275 was bad.

Reminds me of a very ugly version of my own Boat, a 1985 Ross 780. Interestingly, it's about the same size and weighs the same. Guess I'm going to have to make the move to a Masthead Kite and a sprit!

Hello 'gentlemen'. Please do not post gratuitous insults about one of my designs on this website. It serves no purpose except to highlight the fact that there are some strange, sad people out there and it brings the Sailing Anarchy forum into disrepute..

Hi Keith, too late for that, I think the horse has already bolted.

 

Interesting design, hope it works out as well as you expect.

 

Photos of the finished product would be great to sooth the savage monsters of SA

It is very hard to bring this forum into disrepute. It's already been done many times.

 

So tell us about your design?

Hello Trickypig and Rushman - you both seem to be human, so I am happy to respond to your expressions of interest in my BLUE FLAME design (the commercial name is as yet unconfirmed).

 

Unlike most yacht designers, I started my design career with racing dinghies (in particular, Merlin Rockets). So my larger designs are based on what I have learned about planing hulls from that perspective: as far as I am aware, there is no publication which deals scientifically with the hydrodynamics of planing sailboat hulls, so my dinghy design experience is very useful to me.

 

The design aim of BLUE FLAME is to combine high performance with trailability and accommodation with standing headroom. Yes, this has been attempted many times before, and clearly in a 27 footer there are going to have to be some compromises made, but I think that we have come up with a vessel which will perform very well while from the aesthetic point of view looks pretty good. Some of the renderings of the boat have a rather exaggerated perspective, which may give a wrong impression of the boat's looks, but I have seen the first production boat taking shape and she looks good.

 

Under water, BLUE FLAME is basically a scaled up BM550, which in turn is a scaled up HAZARDOUS Merlin Rocket (see my website at www.bluelightning.co.uk for further info on these designs). BLUE FLAME has a 405kg centreboard which fully retracts into the hull, so launching and recovery are a doddle. The main hatch is indeed offset, but the downflooding angle is adequate at 110 degrees.

 

For the latest updates on the progress of the construction of the first production boat, and further general information about the design, please see my website (address above). There are some photos of the boat which will give a better impression of her looks than the rendered images.
