    Gunboat 68

    harryproa, congrats on the new website. It is good to have all the relevant pieces of info in one place. ( although I am itching to see the exhilarator 40 drawings ? ) The kick up boards are a VERY good idea ; & I think we will see flow on from your ideas very soon. Lastly, I cannot find the "page 6 ultime thread" ? Keep up the good work !

    DHS takes on the RRS

    Mulling on this: 1. The best action US Sailing could do is inaction. 2. If the USCG thinks they have solutions, they should make it for all boaters. They already have required safety gear to be carried by boats, they enforce the IRPCAS right of way rules. Are they really saying that their prior work is a failure?

    ORC For Dummies

    I don't think there will be definitive trends, but will be more what your conditions are and tailoring the boat to the course and locale. It largely will depend on how the RC implements the handicaps especially for long distance races. Ex. Bermuda race tends to be more upwind and close reaching in moderately strong winds. So if a boat is fast in those conditions but slow in most other conditions it will be somewhat favored because of the equal weighting given to other points of sail that may not have occurred during the race which will tell the algorithm that the boat is slower. There are ways for the RC to specify conditions over the course to account for such, but I've rarely seen it done- literally one race back in the IMS days over my 50 plus years of racing have I seen the RC specify a percentage of wind direction and speed to be used for handicapping purposes. Usually you get an "ocean" or distance rating based on a circular random type approach.

    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    I met a millenial who thought he was making a living by buying stuff from Amazon and selling it on Craigslist. Cats and Dogs are pretty good at photo-bombing every conceivable image. But... there are four cats in that picture.

    Ask Manafort, Gates, Flynn, Cohen, Papadopoulos, Zwann and Pinedo how much they got for doing nothing.

    The fact that warbird thinks that anything on facebook is news is not surprising. Scratch that. Warbird thinks?

    Brexit, WTF

    Hardly two faced and Brexit is hardly running along political lines plus Nancy applied same comments to the EU. Don't forget there is a lot of Irish sentiment in US so her message and those that write about it has a large domestic flavour. The positive of her visit and comments is it puts Brexit into US lounge rooms which is not a bad thing, remembering Trump calls himself “Mr. Brexit” despite evidence that a disunited E.U. undermines U.S. security and economic interests. For instance Minneapolis Star Tribune. "The West is enduring an irresponsible era of destruction of institutions that have helped deliver decades of relative peace and prosperity." “It’s easier to break something than construct it,” Bart Oosterveld, director of the Atlantic Council’s Global Business and Economic Program, told an editorial writer. Mary Curtin, diplomat-in-residence at the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School, told an editorial writer. “Imagine if all that energy had been put into addressing some of the societal issues that may have led people to vote for Brexit.” http://m.startribune.com/brexit-extension-reflects-damaging-dysfunction/508827952/

    The Redacted Mueller Report

    Not my reading of the situation. Trump doesn’t get his day in court while president. After his term(s) are up he is open game for prosecution and civil suits. It does mean the onus is on Congress to deal with any high crimes while a sitting president is in office. Mueller did his best to make the evidence available, and he’s laid a road map for simpletons to follow. There has to be overwhelming political will to turn impeachment into punishment or removal, however, and it’s safe to say no one has made the case that exists. Trump is an American problem, as are his cult like supporters.

    Hold my beer...

    When you write a sentence like that one, you should stop and think, "Why am I writing it here for free, where it could be victim of the next whimsical purge, and not writing it in the book and getting paid and keeping control of my content?" And then continue to entertain us for free.

    Since we know the Russians are here

    It’s lazy posturing. H28 tried out a stupid idea to see if it would gain traction. He had put no effort or thought behind his words, but enjoys the response, trolls for more. Mid hate to think he represents many people in the auS, but believe he might be the norm. Unthinking, uncaring & convinced he’s right. But really, just lazy.

    "National Cleavage Day"

    So I heard Misty May doing a radio spot for a varicose vein treatment center. I couldn't find the thread about her... uh... cleavage. So I guess that's cleavage-related news? Trying to decide if it's more or less depressing than seeing that Ford Mustang with the "ANTIQUE" plate.
