In Topic: AC50 Boat Porn

12 January 2017 - 06:40 PM

Every single thread in this forum has to bitch about how much things were better way back when.  No wonder the AC forum has about the same reputation as PA.

 

There wasn't a way to jam that random assemblage of 12M pics into one of the 2000 other threads discussing how shitty this regatta is?

 

You're all just the worst kind of cynical bastards.  The only thing you enjoy more than the "good old days" is complaining constantly about how bad things are. 

 

Now I remember why I stopped visiting. 

Hey, I'm not the one who ruined the AC.  As weird as some of those 1987 designs were at least they were all different.  My only remaining interest in this forum are the pics from the prior America's Cup competitions.  Bring back the nationality rules and unique designs and this whole forum will change its tune.  For my part, I'll keep to the Dinghy Forum.  The only difference between the AC forum and the Dinghy forum, at this point, is the size of the boats, after all, and I'm not likely to buy one of these so I'll stick my nose back where it belongs.

Unfortunately the only porn involved is going to be the paint scheme.  Everything else (except for the foils, of course) will look identical.  I'm having more fun looking at the 12 meter facebook page(s) right now and the various designs from 1987 than I am anticipating the AC50s.  Huge loss that this is not a design contest between nations anymore.  I digress.

RImike is Challenge 12 in Newport ?

She is.  She sits at New England Boatworks along with Enterprise and US-42 "Lego" - one of the America II boats from 1987.  Last I saw Challenge 12 she was uncovered (September).
