      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.

Sinker version of Hydroptere except with UptiP foils instead of surface piercing foils---imaginative.

But i am impressed that some one has built a model/ sailing structure or just a  pure piece of art ?

Someone should have told the artist that the foils are supposed to be in the water, not skimming over it…

Hi guys, I am the creator of these images. Shocked to see my image doing the front page of a forum I visit regularly. And right away I knew I would have to brace for impact! Was quite cracking up reading the replies as I usually do when reading these forums. 

A little bit of background. I am originally from France, grew up sailing with my dad cruising and racing in the mediterranean sea, and windsurfed for many years. As a kid I grew up obsessed with the America’s cup and drawing 12mji’s as we called them in France. My job took me in a very different direction, the movie industry, as an industrial designer and concept artist. This foiler (monohull yes) is a small snippet of a massive book coming soon about yachts done with other guys. I am responsible for the sailing segment, and extremely proud to do something about my lifelong passion. I hope you guys will enjoy it, if not I will keep cracking up reading the comments anyway 

D

ps: I did these concepts in 2014 but was excited to see the AC may go the foiling monohull road. Hell I am excited even if they do it on optimists.

Vyleart, obviously Tabarly and Thebault have had influence in your dry bones skeletal version and your outer space machine is somehow so dynamic and efficient it has lifted craft and perforated? wing beam clear of water surface and is flying despite being against all principles. Very nice art work by the way.

At least Bernard Smith actually built his fantacies and tested them:   http://www.oocities.org/aerohydro/designframeset.htm  in the 1950s too. Some people do not learn from history.

 

Is that the same Bernard Smith Engineering that built the steelwork for the Sydney Opera house? .. I had some dealings with them in the late 60's and early '70s .. by all accounts the Opera house nearly broke the company.

COR/D have released some of the design submissions that came in with expressions of interest - clearly trying to influence the rule while it may still be mutable..

No attribution has been given by COR/D, but.....

^ That's just 'sustainable Ben' pushing things a bit in the direction he'd like to see it go probably - it's all epoxy reinforced hemp anyway...

Too much Hydroptere?

Maybe not in a movie (want to keep my job...), but in the book definitely!
