  1. XL2 looks terrific, more so considering she's a 35 plus year old cat. Amazing how these Lock Crowther designs keep on looking the goods.
  2. You've been plastering this shitheap on so many threads that are totally inappropriate. take it off and pay for advertising you cheap skate. i saw someone have a go at you for doing something similar on facebook and you argued the point. this is a corsair thread.
  3. I would think Insurance for a motorbike is a lot less risk than a 200k multihull with crew on board. I wouldn't recommend buying a trimaran or a racing catamaran because of this ongoing insurance issue.
  4. for what i hear was an insurance write off she looks in great shape. isn't most of the work you're doing separate to the capsize, as in extend bows? financially you must be laughing as id have to guess the actual repairs to get her back as she was wouldn't be all that much. good for you.
  5. Surely its a floating tack and the main hasn't been pulled all the way up? The sail looks like its on the boom so should be able to go up and have luff down adjustment. If not the sailmaker needs a measuring tape.
  6. Interesting you say horsepower won't be an issue. At 1.4 x boat length it seems fairly conservative for a 10 metre wide tri compared to say XL2's new rig at 1.6 x boat length. Standing by to see the power to weight ratio as XL2's is very high at 3.2 tons weight and 60 foot rig for a 38 footer. If Venom is 43 foot and 4 tons it could be considered underpowered by comparison. Greater waterline length and the trimaran factor will come into it. It may struggle against the likes of Rushour though.
  7. I agree, i reckon had Paradox got out of the blocks and through the light weather at the start as quick as Comanche did she may have been a lot closer, even in front of the claimed "worlds fastest" monohull, which was well and truely beaten, again.... by all 3, 70 foot tris and all cost under 2 million and are 12 years old! Now there's bang for buck IMHO
  8. What you've mist is the big battle at the very front between the 100 foot foiling Trimarans, Macif, Gitana 17 and the brand new Sodebo. Theres three of them aiming at ultimately averaging speeds of 40 knots. The old, non foiling Sodebo now called Actual Leader is also on or just off the pace. Although these amazing machines are still very much in early development they are going ahead in leaps. no motors running, can be sailed single handed they are amazing. The likes of Rambler and Scally will be days behind these rocket ships. Here's a bit of footage to wet your appetites for spe
  9. Any photos of this packed up on its trailer ready for towing please?
  10. Thank you for posting that. I think I'm in love - Top Gun is an absolute weapon Here's a couple of other videos i found of Top Gun that you may enjoy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOhNoVxs_Yw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1oczaXAhg0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3q4V7d_s4q0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcQ68W8ogIg
