Can't say she's pretty from that first picture.

Like the rudders though, especially the single tiller set up. Two tillers in a boat that small would just get in the way

10 year ban, you americans set the benck mark in E22s and other J boats for fairing & cheatin'

 

btw OP I hardly think this is a sportsboat, main is dinghy sized, we have trailer yachts down under that fall below the SB rating and minimum speed cut off that are more tuned than this grandpa design

 

Jesus you're getting worse.

Stay in OR anarchy and spout about WOXI and don't pollute one of the more serious threads on the forums,....

Whether or not the rudder was going to make him win or not is totally immaterial.

 

The fact is there was some gear used on his boat, albeit while not racing, that was not with the OD rules and now we have to see how to punish him, or whether he should be at all

 

How many boats, especially production boats of this type, specifically from J, have ever built a "practice rudder"?

 

Someone spent a great deal of time and money to make this happen.

 

Who ordered the rudder?

 

Who built the rudder?

 

Were any others made, if so, how many, and who has them?

Never said I disagreed with any of that.

In my opinion the guy is guilty as sin.

 

For all the reasons people have stated above.

 

It makes no sense to build a more expensive practice rudder that would differ hugely from the class norm.

 

I was just stating the only facts we have.

 

In the protest room (if there even can be a protest over this, which I'm pretty sure there can't) they are the only things that count.

 

The most extreme outcome of this will be people voting with their feet/wallets and leaving the class
