  1. This is hysterically funny. ROTFL And to think that Mr. Monohull Hutchinson thought the AC72 was dangerous (or so he said to the media after he was walked off Artemis). Mark my words: these absolutely ridiculous “monohull” boats (ROTFL) are DEFINITELY going to kill people. 40 knots of VMG! How incredibly stupid. They must have been smoking some good shit. These boats will be absolutely out of control in 18 knots of wind, let alone 25. Again, they are not monohulls by any stretch except when at the dock (drawing 25 feet lol, how practical) in “monohulls are cool too” mode
  2. Remember the piles of Corsair Pulse 600s everyone in the USA is buying and really excited about? Yeah, I know, figment of the imagination.
  3. 800 lbs would tell me that weight was a consideration. A heavy boat does not necessarily mean a durable boat. I would like to see the actual weights vs the published weights. They are usually much heavier than advertised. Specifically the mast weight, rudder and rudder assembly weight, etc. I'll bet 2 things, there is a massive range in actual boat weights and 2, the range is all higher than 1000 lbs.
  4. Maybe true. But that does not change the fact that, for what it is, the Pulse 600 is WILDLY overpriced. Supply and Demand is an elastic and ever changing law. I simply see that as a market that is ripe for competition. Corsair is not impressive even though multihulls are very much so. Corsair will be beaten easily by any smart competitors. The world has finally realized (about 3 decades later than they should have) that multihulls are vastly superior sailing craft and that the small, pocket rocket 20-25 foot size range is a sweet spot. Corsair is raking in the cash right now, no doubt, b
  5. The 20 foot tri market is going to explode but Corsiar is going to lose out. They have offended the markets intelligence in my opinion. I fully expect other builders to improve the value (price) and quality. The Corsair Pulse 600 is going to be a failure. They should have started with a much lower price point. I guarantee that Corsair is making a bunch of money on these boats when they are fortunate enough to find a buyer. We know the dealers are taking 20% of the purchase price (pretty good margin for the dealer). Do the math. Even if the builder is taking only another 20%, you alread
  6. Just go to your therapist and tell them your suffering from denial.
  7. I made a spelling error. That's your comeback? Let's try it again, but this time with some visual aides... "Heavy is good, heavy is reliable. If it does not work you can always hit him with it." - Boris the Blade This clip would be a good tag line for the Corsair Pulse 600. Why not make it 1500 lbs? 2000 lbs? Just fill it with sand maybe? Yep, step right up and buy the 1000 lb. Corsair Pulse 600 with a cheap, heavy aluminum rig for 40k! It's dramatically overpriced in my opinion. In fact, the Corsair Pulse 600 is, in many ways, no more sophisticated than a Ho
  8. The Corsair Pulse 600 is too expensive for what it is (fairly cheap rig, sails, build quality, finishing touches, etc) and is WAY to heavy at 1000 lbs, unlaidened. No concern to weight seems to be given. Needs a carbon rig. It should cost no more than 30k as it is currently delevered, complete, IMO.. But with their dealer model, when you buy the boat you're paying the dealer 20% money on your purchase price and the factory is making 100% on a 10-15k build cost. They charge the buyer shipping. But I hope it's successful. J70s and legacy one designs have more bored to death with sailing.
  9. Jim, The point is that there is no video backing up anything at all. Lets see it sailing. Heavy air, light air, upwind, reaching, downwind, small, middle and big sail..... Lets see it in various conditions vs. other boats in the segment Lets see it being rigged. Lets see it being lifted up on a car by a young woman It is incredible to me that there is not more video as RS is supposedly a proper marketer of their products, etc. Someone please post a few video's of this thing...OR...are there literally no video's? Might not be the best thing to do...To my mind there are two
  10. Why is there almost no video (I actually could find none on YouTube) of this 10k next generation single hander "phenom" sailing circles around lasers and leaving them behind? Perhaps a video of a lady lifting the boat on top of a car by herself? Hey RS? Some (actually LOTS!) video please.!? I think is is weak to have zero video on a product website. Really, really weak.
