  1. 99% of this thread consists of people theorizing. And 99% of those are talking out of their assholes. Latest example: Some knobhead downloads a photograph of a boat which was take from the deck of another boat, draws three lines apon it without knowing any original data regarding angles, dimensions, perspective,etc, and then declares himself to be a master of trigonometry by declaring that the hulls have splayed. I'd theorize in stating that his fucking egoistical brain has splayed. WcW

  3. Dear sirs. I must insist on on serving a cease and desist order being placed on any further expansion of this conversation. Good god man. You've just published over 90% of our production process. Yours. RED BULL. P:S: Please do not publish any details re: Linoleum production process as a by-product.
  4. There is another basic something that is also missing, and that is "Sailing." Anarchy, we seem to have in spades. But, this hasn't evolved to the level of CA yet, just AA. No, not that one, but "Anchoring Anarchy." Just hope we don't have main shipping channel anarchy, or CGA. And recently, we looked like we were going strong with "Sons of Anarchy", what with the Harleysaki and guns. I'd love to see some Sailing Anarchy. Really! Just hope HR and family don't then have a bath WITHOUT an EPIRB. So do I mate. So do I, but it would be nice to see him pull it off if only to get some of th

  6. You know. Throughout this whole "tome" of a thread, there is a basic "something" that seems to have been missed by most of our resident experts. That "something" is the fact that this site is called "Sailing ANARCHY" and in that vein our Flying Hot Rod is more of an ANARCHIST than 90% of the rest of our gallant bunch of bullshitters. Yes, he maybe doing it wrong from our point of view but, at least he's bloody well doing it and not sitting in front of a screen thowing shit in the air between bouts of wanking at the latest peice of plastic boat porn that they'll never be able to afford. I'm no

  8. I agree mate, but it needn't be a monohull only event. In monos the AC32 event worked brilliantly using a box rule and had more to give the spectators than any of this nonsense and in actual fact the big screens gave the land spectators a better view than us reporters had out on the water. If the cup continues as a multi event then the box rule has to go and we revert to the old J-Class format which was " Make a challenge and throw money at it". I'd be interested in seeing that. Ten multihulls of different designs and configurations racing under a box rule of max loa 75', min loa 60' x max bea

    Viva le "Cup"

    So I expect Larry is happy now. His fiasco of a "Cup" event has the sensation and all of the excitement he could ever have wished for. I wonder if he ever sat down to think about just what the "Americas Cup" is all about. If he had done so he would have maybe realised that it isn't about launching boats into space. It isn't about breaking speed records, and it certainly isn't about ringing up a death toll to rival "Nascar". His attitude from the start has been about payoff and making a buck. His attitude from the start has been about "Bringing in the punters" on a scale never seen before. The

  12. That's it my friends. We're all fucked. Unless we go climb a mountain in France or kiss our asses goodbye,, the friggin Mayas got it right. EEEHHh. Hang on a sec. If those clever little sods got it right then how come they dissappeared before they knew it?. OK. Let's try again. The calendar says that the end of the world comes on the 21st-Dec- 2012. Great, So if it's so accurate over 4000 years,,, why don't they tell us what time it will end so we can tidy our desks before the great "BOOM". Nah. I don't believe a word of it. I reckon that my kids are right. They demand money for "After" D-Day

    Sailing Handicap

    Well you see the thing is Cool is that disability is relative to the past as I am now finding out. If you have read the first couple of entries you will note that I'm feeling pretty handicapped myself now. I've been an active chap for most of my life but over the last few years I've gone down the chute so to speak. Here I am feeling sorry for myself because I can't walk properly any more and My legs joints hurt because I've been favouring the bad leg over these last 5 years. I moan about the massive doses of pills I have to take daily and yet when I really think about it, There is very little

    Sailing Handicap

    I was having a gander at the Paralympic sailing the other day and very good it was too. It also made me realise just how handicapped us so called "able bodied" types really are. My wife has been in some form of assisted transport since childhood (polio victim of the 1960,s), and although a very sweet natured and highly intelligent woman in normal circumstances she can become an absolute demon when obstructed by ignorance or sheer bad manners. People don't seem to realise that she is in fact in control (very precise control) of a personal armoured car. Supermarkets are her favourite hunting g
