  1. Omer, I like everything about that. Well done! quote name="Omer" post="5393700" timestamp="1469211717"]This is my baby... I think it is kinda cool and perhaps kinda admirable... Only because i designed and built it myself, if not for anything else. I have an engineering background but not NA. I have never ever tackled to draw or build anything bigger than a model plane when i was a kid. But doing something like that was a life long ambition.

  7. Well said Robin and Sam. Couldn't agree more! Dain
  8. Look, let's just keep things in context. The 20 rating was one race, one race committee. Any implication that it was a broader judgement than that on the boat's perceived performance is incorrect. Do you guys realize escamillo= akagp ? Trying to have a constructive convo with the guy is useless. He has an agenda regarding the J111 rating.
