  1. to me it looks like the 'sleeve' is decorative rather than structural. I'm guessing that there is a boltrope/track involved and there is a flap wrapping the mast and velcro-ed down the length. Why though? Parts of the luff look really squishy
  2. Any guesses how the sail is attached to the mast? I am assuming that the masts are fixed in place and each sail hoisted on a halyard - what means is used to accomplish the 'wrap' around the mast? I am facing a similar problem
  3. I remember being interested in that beast back when there were florins... cant believe its still around!
  4. News. I saw a clip as a kid of a monk self-immolating. Still see that. Cant look at stuff like that.
  5. Constantly. I wish I knew who it was cause he gets me into a lot of trouble!
  6. Cold tar - It's probably going to be more able to damp the inevitable movement thats going to occur between the keel and the hull too - make for a smoother ride. "I wont know the results of this experiment for a month though..." Yup.

  11. 1 liter of water weights 1 kg. How heavy is the boat in kg? You need that many liters.
  12. Arrogance is when you think you have all the knowledge
  13. https://goo.gl/maps/M2i2uStDs8CCKKrr7 Saw something similar walking past here recently.
  14. got to keep that damn boom out of the way
  15. and once again an interesting conversation bites the dust thanks to prejudice, intolerance yelled across the room by the few.. See ya FF. Hope you make it, or at least, make it into a good story. l
  16. I hope he makes it to the water. I rather doubt that will happen and instead we'll see it show up in Craigslist as a mockworthy contestant. How he plans to extricate it from the forest is going to be a chapter either way though.
  17. which is why a password vault is a good idea (ie LastPass - i use this and it works well on Android and Win)
  18. dodger! no way, I'd bump right into that one
  19. Already sniffing around for the posthumous movie rights!?
  20. Swam all the way to Indonesia and got picked up by a passing freighter.
