      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.

"Easy to Fly" Catamaran Foiler

Recommended Posts

Very close to C Class dimensions.

So close it makes me think the hulls might be made out of the Groupama C molds.

Same designer.

Hull Length

C Class 7.62m

Easy to Fly 7.93m

Beam

C Class 4.26

Easy to Fly 4.3m

Confirmed price: 150k sans sails.

That's a bit pricey , how much of those C-Class 150k goes for the Wing?

Diam 24OD is around 60k, a foiling kit or preparing it from factory to foil will not reach 150k.

You really have set yourself up for the traditional newbie greeting "fuck of or show us your girlfriend's tits!" Why? Because what you have posted is bullshit. The boats you show are not alternatives. Nobody who is going to buy an Easy to Fly is going to look at the other 2 boats The Easy to Fly is 26', sailed by 3 persons and has no trapeze. The Whisper is just under 18' and has a crew of 2 on trapezes and the iFly is 15' single handed with trapeze. Completely different markets. 

Still thgink it is pricey but I think there is room in the market for a boat like that.
