a. That is a lot of fucking valtera valves.
b. The sheer beauty of that water transfer system makes mine look awfully agricultural.
c. I can just imagine the shit show that occurs when they need to tack the ballast. They must have to send 5 crew below.

Would love an understanding on the rigging bits as I've never seen anything quite like them on any other boat.

Just looks to be the tack (floating?) separate from the forestay which is undoubtably adjustable and then some soft shackles. . . just quite large!

they have 2 modes, they can rake the rig back to carry bigger sails for downwind. balances the boat better at higher speeds, like a windsurfer. It is superbad for the rating. so you move the rig forward for IRC. i think that the rig forward mode has not been very successful for them

The tack is a set of 2:1s run off the prod, it's the setup of these halyards that I thought was fairly interesting. The moveable rig answers the question about the triangular attachment aft of the forestay. I was so geeked to get a peek at the boat that I was focused on getting shots as opposed to inspecting things.

That's actually for the floating jib tack - AIUI, you also find them on some VO70s (?). Attaching the jib tack to the A frame means that the tack is always in line with the ram = reduced friction/a fairer lead.

This is common on any boat that uses a halyard lock for the jib. The A-Frame is attached to a ram to control luff tension of the jib. It also appears that the forestay is attached to a ram as well.

Yep thats what I was thinking. . . pretty sweet set up for the Jib trimmer.
Pain in the ass if your in charge of keeping the hydraulics running. . . then again compared to this bitches other systems, the one ram used for the tack is probably the least trouble! :lol:

I dont fully understand why they would go changing the rig set up (fwd - back) to comply with IRC. . . seems to me she is almost a 2.000 anyways!

ITHM that for IRC they fix the forestay length - as you have to because a) it's measured, and b) it's not allowed to be adjusted.

Technically this year they can declare adjustable forestay/backstay. Under IRC. Not good for the rating. but since Newport - Bermuda is principally scored under ORR they are not allowed to adjust that while sailing. = fixed forestay.

Rail Meat:

Those valves flank the aft companionway when heading down to the nav station, which by the way, is pure sex, They are simply huge in diameter. The one thing that struck me the most about the boat was the forward stringers forward of the Main/keel bulkheads. They were aprox 4' tall and 10" wide spaced about 3' apart. I believe there was a platform between them, but I could not imagine falling off one while under way. The whole for-peak screamed broken leg to me.

I would love to know something about the running rigging. Loads have to be monsterous... what material / size are they using for sheet and for halyards. What do they use for lashing? What do they use for strops? And what do they use for shackles?


Will ask, and shoot video of all the bits and pieces. If anyone wants me to focus on anything else specific while aboard, post it here.

Fun day, pretty relaxing in just 5-10 knots clocking all day until it was a weak sea breeze. Under the tested headsails - a #2 and furling solent - the boat was definitely sluggish compared to some of the narrower modern maxis. But she lit up under the big red code zero at narrow angles, clocking around 15 after we jumped off on a tender in 9 or 10 knots of wind. Playing the bulb and heat to keep the flat spot between the chines flat, and truckin'. A few minor hiccups with hydraulic system, retractable drive - thoughts are that the system, with probably a mile of hydraulic line, was not completely bled after being worked on. Pics and video comin - after the party on Jackson's big luxo-trawler. I think I'll be able to get Stan Honey, Alex, and maybe Hendo - said to be the single best rigger in the world for big boats - on video tomorrow morning, as well as do a video walkthrough down below with explanations for the stuff from the crew. Then we head home with nine hours of driving time to edit pics and video.

Yeah, you'll see. Beefy construction...yet if things like companionway ladders aren't designed right, they break when the hull compresses and tries to meet the deck in big seas at speed.

Cute, Mike. Little change in plans - Mer is going to hang back and work on photos she's got, boat call just got moved up to 1015 because the breeze seems like it's holding up for a bit and we need to go get some. This boat is all about breeze. Edited up yesterday into about 18 minutes of footage, even added music and titles. I hate editing. No time to render and compress and post cause I gotta go sailing, but should have some good stuff before end of biz today, maybe 3 or 4. Mer pics (and they are super cool, lots of unique views) may be up sooner.

All questions will soon be answered! Today was a bit breezier but still not enough to see her stretch her legs, we sailed at a max of 17 and change in a max of 12 and a bit. I used my time to get a full video tour of the belly of the beast with John Hildebrand, engineer and a full tour of the deck with Andrew Henderson, master rigger. These are the boys that keep everything running properly, and their skills are seriously big. I also got a treat- 18 minutes on camera with one of my favorite people ever, Stan Honey. You'll really like this one, but since I have no editors with me its going to be somewhat rough and take a while. Part 1 (yesterday) should be done in a couple hours, the rest- later

What do you mean by "manual"? That manifold looks pretty simple to me. Open all valves to "dump" the water to the leeward tanks before a tack or gybe. Most systems will get about 75% of the water into the new side using this method. Then the pump tops them up. Pump is usually engine driven but who knows with this beast. I'm sure Mer's photo's will reveal all. Scoops usually are not powerful enough to completely fill, they come in handy when the pump fails though!

yep that's right the other option is to go with pneumatic system. The down side to the pneumatic is you have to have a compressor, tank, hose, actuators that open and close everything. That's a lot of extra weight. Remember that this beast is for ocean sailing not a trip around a 2 mile buoy race.

The Manual means that they have to go downstairs and open the valves to do a water fill/dump, transfer.

Clean ask Stan what he thinks about water ballast :blink:

yer, some poor bloke has gotta go and do it. But when there's over 20 guys on board, it's not hard to find someone spare....

Xena (modified open 60 ex Grundig) has a good transfer system with gigantic ball valves with long arms and a rope system operated from on deck. The individual tank valves were between the transfer valves and the tanks so you could leave open only the ones you wanted to use. Worked really well. Pull the red string on the windward side to dump, pull the green string on the leeward side when the transfer is complete and then tack or gybe. Still need to go down stairs to top up with the pump when you get a minute.

It would be even more impressive if she were wearing a skirt while doing so. Obviously not ideal clothing for going up the mast but I'm sure the crew wouldn't mind.

Skirts on boats don't work out too well, but it would be hard to find a shorter pair of shorts than what she wears when shooting.

Anyway, good stuff coming but slower than we'd like. Where are my fucking editors when I need them? Here's a little taste of what super turbo looks like - 500 meters in a minute...we need something like that for our upload speeds...the boys to call for this shit are on the vid - JH and Hendo at Dark Horse Yachting.

No, too much gear to carry around. That's native 640x480 from one of the three work horse Xacti E2s that I have accumulated. The two new W-HD versions I've bought have both failed under the tough conditions I subject them to, and Sanyo does not export the more robust E-HD version of the waterproof line to the states so I stick with the E-2s. Picture not sharp, sound mediocre, but they are reliable and when I'm doing 20 minutes with Stan Honey that is quite important

The Exactis are fun little units. I went with the WH1 for the optical zoom but it sounds like I should not expect it to last very long. Still though, for the price they're hard to beat.

Keep in mind that our equipment is subject to extremes in shock (countless baggage handlers and jaw-jarring 50 kt RIB rides), temp variations, shit tons of dust and sand and salt, and true underwater use to the rated depth limit. Plus an amount of battery and card changing in a few months that yours won't likely see in its lifetime. You might be just fine. I'm picking up the E9 I think its called which is HD but the pistol type and will review it here after garda.

Great video... well done. You shooting with the Canon and taking it down to AVCHD for editing?

No, too much gear to carry around. That's native 640x480 from one of the three work horse Xacti E2s that I have accumulated. The two new W-HD versions I've bought have both failed under the tough conditions I subject them to, and Sanyo does not export the more robust E-HD version of the waterproof line to the states so I stick with the E-2s. Picture not sharp, sound mediocre, but they are reliable and when I'm doing 20 minutes with Stan Honey that is quite important



Is it going up soon? Really want to see the Stan Honey interview.

I am on I-95 just passing Jacksonville now, Mer asleep next to me with the dogs curled around eachother in the back. Been sending out emails and texts to get reports of Genuine Risk and Speedboats cruise north. I imagine there will be some good stories with the honkin southerly breeze we've seen for the last day. GR has a few hours lead. Will get interviews up in morning.

Once you get your camera gear sorted you really need to get audio worked out. What you have now is "Okay" and gets the job done. Professional equipment is much cheaper and better than you'd think.

I only got the one day on film, but she sure is a fun boat to shoot! So aggressive looking with nothing elegant or soft on the entire platform, and the graphics work perfectly to make her growl. Enjoy!

As always, if you're looking for high-res stuff for a brochure, corporate website, or to put on your wall, just send me a PM or email me, and thanks for checking them out!

We use what is appropriate under the circumstances. Sometimes that means the pro gear (and yes, we have a lot of it), sometimes that means handheld consumer waterproofs that don't have mic jacks.

Just finally got some time to watch those video's! Great job guys/girls!!! I'm glad to see the boat back in the water. It's obvious the quality of the crew Alex has assembled. It's also obvious that with as good as the guys are they really need time in the boat working out the bugs and figure out maneuvers. I found it very interesting watching a bunch of top shelf pro's looking down that hatch trying to figure out how to best move the sails. I guess I've always known that this boat is a cutting edge monster but never really understood how different/difficult things like a "simple" sail change are. I'm sure that with the proper funding, proper conditions, and once the crew work gels this beast will do just what she was built to do.

Good luck in the N2B!!!

i grabbed this from here:

http://www.facebook....330423&topic=56

SPEEDBOAT sailing Just some comments on the Palm Beach to Newport Delivery that we just completed. Was a lot of fun, spent 85% of the time VMG downwind, Jibing thru the Gulf Stream. Stan used some pretty interesting techniques to figure out the corners and bends in the stream and our wind GRIB was spot on most of the time. One of the challenges that we faced was the fact that our sail inventory was limited to just 3 sails, a delivery main (short luff), and 2 fore sails, a solent, and a jib top. Another challenged that we faced was that we where carrying a significant amount of weight in the bow which we typically do not carry, normally there is nothing up there. This was a much more significant factor then i originally thought. We had trouble keeping the bow up, this was pretty harmful, this was basically the result of this being a glorified delivery and us having to carry a bunch of stuff that we normally would not have onboard. The Bow on this boat is huge and has tremendous volume, it is 10+ feet high and and 17+ feet wide at some points. But we where burying it deep at points. We basically did not have the boat setup correctly and it showed at a few points in the journey. Sailor Error. We got some weight out of the bow and she really light up. In the end this was a delivery, we motored for 4-5 hours. the boys have done a tremendous job pimping out the boat and getting her 98% of the way back to perfection. The next 2 months are going to be very exciting. keep checking this space!

Stan is totally right. There needs to be more opportunities for women on ocean racers such as Speedboat. As such, aspiring female racers should post their qualifications on the Speedboat facebook page.

It will be a long time before I have any spare time to make anything from the remaining 10 GB of video I shot, but as promised, here is the full tour of the deck of Speedboat. Those of you who asked about line sizes and types, have at it. Those of you looking for details on shackles, splices, and coatings, enjoy. Those interested in purchases, loads, winches, and so on, clicky clicky. I quite like this style of deck interview, and I think I'll do it again soon. Thanks for all the input you folks put into this thread and the others.

Well, if this is the question thread then I've got a few.

-What events are you planning to do with Speedboat over the next 12 months besides Bermuda and a possible transat attempt.
-How did you identify the need for this latest refurbishment?

And the ever popular common-interest-type-question...!

-What was your favorite experience with the boat?




So Clean, how about some answers to those questions for Alex that we asked earlier in the thread? Posted Image


the answers are in the interviews, which are in the shining box on my desk.


Are you sure about that? So far you're 0 for 3 with my requests.

The vids are very good, the questions that were asked seemed 'comfortable' as you have knowledge of the systems beyond the average sailor, but not to the extreme that this boat requires. This made your questions very good at trying to 'learn' from Hendo.


Only one critique, which has been common from the start............................hold the camera more steady and pan slower. Sometimes it gets dizzying, but other than that the vids are usually pretty good.

Thanks again to you and the Speedboat gang that allowed us this unique opportunity.

Are you sure about that? So far you're 0 for 3 with my requests.


Unfortunately, I had about 40 minutes to shoot interviews during the day because of various issues. 20 went to Stan Honey. 30 went to the Speedboat walkthrough, mostly because I knew Rail Meat wanted it and I owe him one. Alex Jackson, who was the logical person to answer your questions, couldn't wait the half hour it took me to finish up the deck tour, and since I've had him on before, I elected to go with Honey and Hendo and catch Alex when I see him in a few weeks. Either that, or I blew off your questions 'cause you're a cunt.

And yes, I know my video work could use a professional touch, which is why I've hired professionals for the past three major events we've done. We didn't have that luxury here, and being the interviewer and cameraman at the same time is far from ideal, especially when I actually have to process what the interviewer is saying and constantly think up new questions. Still, some good comments on this and the other thread, always happy to improve.
