The cover shot for the J-24 sales brochure. Introducing the worlds first dual purpose sail boat, plane along under sail with the doors closed, but with the flip of a locker you have your own personal submarine. 35 foot periscope not included.

Dear patent agency,

 

Included is a picture of my new invention showcased on my racing sail boat. This mac-26 is in 7th mode, with our new air lift set up, we can by pass the 4th, 5th, and 6th modes, and hop straight to 7nth. With no bow theres no problem of hoping over your own bow wake.

Frank

 

Brilliant

1) Busy discussing gybing techniques, this team did not notice they were sinking until their hats began to float.

 

2) When rescuers asked why the team didn't start bailing earlier, the captain replied "Bailing is for sissies!"

rub a dub dub three men in a tub

the newest members of the submariners club

with grand ideas of going to sea

thinking life on the ocean would make them free

who left the bungs at the dock we're not sure

but the three men are afloat no more.

Day 2 at the test site for the new FT10 engine door........

 

ballywho " So in order to market the yacht you will have to fit a quick release door for the engine. Something that can just pop out at a moments notice."

 

Robert Perry "That is a good idea but the class rules are set in stone and we did not allow for an engine door at all as it may cause a point to allow water in."

 

"DA MAN" " I agree it was not in the plans but we could make one from bamboo to keep costs down but offer at alternate in carbon to match the new tiller. And it would only be a small additional cost.

 

ballywho " What we need is a training video to show why you need to upgrade away from the bamboo to the carbon door. Man we could also throw in a carbon tiller for say another $5,000.

 

"DA MAN" " No problem. Please see attached the first trial of the carbon door. The best thing is that it will stop anyone commenting on the high cabin top at the same time."

No, No, I saw it in Sailing World. The New Zealanders did the same thing in the 2003 America's Cup. I can't for the life of me remember if they won, though.

My comment? for god's sake, when taking pictues in bright sunlight, with white sails, up the exposure compensation a few notches so you can at least SEE the guilty faces....

So the centre of lateral area right, it is supposed to be below the centre of effort right, and the centre of bouyancy should be right about the centre of the effor.....hold on, is that a misprint?

I'm not sure this whole water ballast thing is working. Are you sure we're doing it right?

Frank demonstrates the viability of water ballast in trailerable sailboats, but wonders if the 50 HP Mercury will be now able to propel them to the fourth mode.
