  1. Everyone likes to bitch about North & Quantum's prices, but they deliver and when something isn't right, they fix it. I once worked for a small business / contractor, who funded funding his ongoing operations (aka alimony and a coke habit) with new customer deposits. It all works fine until something like COVID interrupts the new business, and then good luck finding him... the money's gone.
  2. Yeah you post above is sort of my point. I can't follow your incoherent string of quotes. And more annoyingly, I can't follow any other poster's conversation because everywhere I look, you've spammed it with hundreds of self-quotes. I sense I'm wasting my time here.
  3. Mr Sparrow - my issue is that I don't have any fucking idea how your posts relate to any topic at hand. I gather that you are very upset that Australia has been allowing too many people into the country, which is fine... I couldn't care less one way or the other. But I don't understand why you post the same statistics and memes on every single thread, it's not convincing, it's just spam and make it impossible to read anything or anyone else's replies. That's why I'd suggest you need a time out.
  4. I didn't know this was a contest for who can post the most. I concede...
  5. Mr Sparrow - I haven't been on this part of the board for a long time, because it seemed to be mostly pointless Trump vs non-trump political covid crap early this summer. But now it seems like it's just you and LB15 going at each other. He was funny though, so I left him off my poll. In any case, if no one else feels this way, then they can skip the voting and you can have this entire section of sailing anarchy all to yourself.
  6. ...and for those of you who selected "less than 4 minutes for Jack to confirm the point of this poll" step right up and claim your prize!
  7. I can barely navigate this site any more, it's all @jack_sparrowspam posts all the time. They are verbose, unoriginal, humorless, and of such a volume to make any engagement pointless. I'm guessing I'm not alone here - @Editor, pls give some consideration to improving the discourse here by punting him.
  8. I’ve always thought of the “good programs” as the boats that I’m not good enough to sail on...
  9. @12 metre. That’s genius, thatnk you! The middle of the keel is basically flat (lazy builders/casting) so I don’t expect it to match exactly with any NACA foils, and will require a lot of fairing build-up. Is there Any software or method you recommend for matching the points to the particular NACA foils?
  10. Trying to identify what foil section was used, any ideas on how to best take measurements of the keel?
  11. No, these safety requirements are not just “recommendations.” Each of these races will have a very specific SER list and often pre-race inspections, and winners should be prepared for a post-race inspection too. I don’t think you are going to find a one-size-fits-all answe her, you really need to examine the race NOR and see what safety & equipment is required — there will be a list. Do you really want to be that guy who gets DSQ’d for missing equipment in a post-race inspection, after spending days offshore and tens of thousands prepping the boat?
  12. This is exactly what is happening in Annapolis... new ORC-optimized designs like the Italia are cleaning house, winning or in top 3 in most races. They have great crew too, which matters too of course. (And old phrf rule beaters are instead racing in the phrf division... which means smaller less competitive classes for both) (Also some interesting results with older boats suddenly are outperforming orc, maybe because that vpp rule has focused more on modern design features?)
  13. After what looked like a pretty bleak season with covid, Chesapeake racing season has really turned around in the last few months. AYC’s Solomons distance race this weekend has 57 entries, up 20 from last year. Scratch sheet: https://yachtscoring.com/event_scratch_sheet.cfm?eID=11747 And the NASS race two weeks ago had nearly a 100, and the new Doublehanded next week has twice the entries from last year. I’m missing all the post race the parties, but we have gotten in some good racing this year and drinking on the boat works too.
  14. @Jackett In either case though, the issue of the delivery captain getting stiffed is separate from the sales agreement. That liability lies with whoever actually hired him. The OP has been conspicuously silent on this matter, which makes me think that both sides were in communication with the skipper. In which case, the broker's offer to pay half seems reasonable.
