  1. Looks super uncomfortable to sit/hike out on. Almost square corners in the cockpit with small chamfer. Should have gone with a nice curve instead
  2. Give me virtual skipper over this any day of the week. So many more boats . Graphics so much better, sailing so much realistic. Just wish it was on phone too.
  3. Wow that looks very similar to stentecs last sail simulator. Hope yours takes off better than their's did though! Any chance of doing an android version as there's only 2 on there that are ok, both made by same developer, but 1 is a lot better physics wise but only has 1 course
  4. Mari cha 3 it was, 146 foot ketch designed in 97 designed by philippe briand this is the website for her. Pretty sure they were used as the radio relay vessel as the Young Endeavor was doing something else and were not in the actual race but held the 'passage record' they beat nokia by 2hrs. https://www.mari-cha.com/#specifications. Mari cha 4/samurai is 140ft designed by Mr Elliott. Iirc they couldn't build a sloop Rob as they didn't have manual grinders/winches at the time to handle anymore sail area so went with the schooner rig. During the refit they also removed the canting keel, might
  5. Hmm I might try and get to the balmoral one!
  6. not trying to sound negative but that's a very bold statement to say it's the fastest hiker. Do you know how it would stack up against an Ns14 or something similar?Cheers rob
  7. Yep and when they changed to 100 ft almost all the 98fters added 2 ft to the boats. Iirc lahana was the only one that didnt
  8. Hmm263, just to clarify, mari cha 3's record was set in 99, not 98. This was the year that Nokia won line honours and smashed the race record as did brindabella for conventially ballasted boats (still holds this record) I wonder if rio will beat this record this year?

    Joke

    I do believe mike has cut some stuff out of the one about the man moving into the new apartment.. here is the full version: A young man moved into a new apartment on his own, and went to the lobby to put his name on his mailbox. While there, an attractive young lady came out of the apartment next to the mailboxes wearing a robe. The boy smiled at the young woman and she started a conversation with him. As they talked, her robe slipped open, and it was obvious that she had nothing else on. The poor kid broke into a sweat trying to maintain eye contact. She seemed keen to talk but aft

    I got a phone call from a gorgeous ex-girlfriend of mine the other day. We lost track of time, chatting about the wild nights we used to enjoy together. I couldn't believe it when she asked if I'd like to meet up and maybe rekindle a little of that magic. "Wow!", I said, "I don't know if I could keep pace with you now! I'm a bit older and a bit balder than when you last saw me!" She giggled and said she was sure I'd meet the challenge! "Yeah", I said, "just so long as you don't mind a man with a waistband that's a few inches wider these days!" She laughed and told me to stop b
