    Bunk cover material

    Thanks everyone, it looks like Sunbrella Furniture Fabric is the go. but why open cell foam, would not a low density closed cell foam be a better option?

    Bunk cover material

    I need to replace the bunk and cushion covers on a racer cruiser. Any suggestions on a material (other than vinyl or leather), which is waterproof so that the foam doesn't absorb water from crew in wet weather gear, sails etc. Preferably want something comfortable for cruising, deliveries etc.

    Aussie/Kiwi ocean and club racers

    Sure take one of the best yachts of the last 30 years and chop it up. I can guess how that worked out for them

    All very predictable, after a lot of insults, legal threats and small dick posturing, the existing M11 boats will be grandfathered and will remain in high demand for years to come, think Bashford.

    I wonder whether some of these UFO's are a face saving exercise for the teams, rather than admit that the design/ build was compromised or boat pushed beyond limits

    That works for me!

    Anchors Away?

    Make sure you have it hanging over the bow at all times ready to deploy, seems to clear out those pesky people calling starboard all the time.

    Headfoil vs Hanks, thoughts?

    From what I have seen the top TP's all run foils, but do bare head drops on jibs to save wt and drag of multi halyards/locks etc and crew time on the bow. At least one TP runs or did run an oversized foil to take advantage of un rated sail area.

    Showtime capsize on return trip

    Surely the military can come up with something more expensive than an aircraft carrier that they must have. Flying/space/interstellar/submersible aircraft carrier?

    Headfoil vs Hanks, thoughts?

    And just to complicate matters, the foil is unmeasured sail area
