  1. And still no comments on the DST 810?
  2. Anybody having any experience with the Airmar DST810 Smart?
  3. They use a different (better) system for more than 7 years already. What I like about the Stealth cat is the high build quality, the new retractable outboard system with ‚3D plug’, and it is super light at just 3.5to (Stealth 13). These are designed for warmer climates (great ventilation), TS-42 and TS-5 more for the Atlantic circle. Both companies have a strong focus on racers. Let‘s not forget the Dazcats, but very expensive. Two Tillers vs. two wheels - I like both systems. One of the few things I don‘t like about the TS is the completely unprotected steering position (very wet) …
  4. Some of them already switched to Vinylester resin or a combination of layers of Vinylester and Polyester (Lagoon), but why a high end (marketing claim) manufacturer (Outremer) still uses cheap Polyester resin? I don‘t get it.
  5. Anybody around who’ve sailed an Outremer 45 and still believes it is a ‘Performance Cat’? Are all Outremer Cats still build in Polyester?
  6. I guess that M&M/Rapido completely underestimated the size/complexity of the folding system. There are good reasons why Dragonfly’s swing wing system is really strong and heavy and the waterstays are critical to deal with the huge forces involved.
  7. Board and Veeg both are right Light performance Catamaran = easy to seriously mess up (e.g. in a squall) Trimaran (today all of them are performance oriented) = very safe in (almost) all conditions
  8. One of the few trustworthy sources for realistic displacement figures is the OMR Rating System (all tanks empty and boat in racing trim): Romanza - Rapido 60 - D Love / J Knowles - 10,087 kg Rapido - Rapido 60 - Richard Eyre - 9,934 kg After the folding system of the Rapido 50 adds extra weight my guess would be a measured 'OMR weight' of around 7,500 kg.
  9. Check out YouTube videos, boat tests etc. and you‘ll find (almost) always that BSP is significantly higher than SOG. It takes me 10 sec ‚recalibrating‘ my B&G to show an ‚optimized‘ BSP. :-) What is the motivation for a boat owner / sales man / broker to show a correct (smaller) BSP? Have you ever been on a (non professional racing) yacht with correctly calibrated electronics?
  10. I would love to understand the background of this excident. Anybody heard anything?

  12. Lot of super stars around here. Talking polars, let me ask a stupid question: How good is your autopilot doing in light air <6kn?
