  1. I watched more ESS when they used the X40, switching to the GC32 made the series lose it's uniqueness. I'm sure that's not the only reason that the series folded but it may well be a contributing factor. The stadium sailing format while it led to some rather tedious races at times in certain locations brought the boats close to the crowds.
  2. It's a cool boat, nice to see some new Grainger trimaran designs progressing to build, Jamie Morris will inject some artistry into the build I often look at pictures of Cutloose and admire his work there, gorgeous boat and I'm sure this will be no different. From a personal perspective I would have liked to have had an aft cabin on a boat this size but I get that many people would prefer the extra cockpit space.
  3. Colligo Marine put up a picture a while back which I cant find now that suggested that the waterstays for the Pulse 600 would be rope not wire stays.
  4. The guys over at Aardvark are putting the Shinobi Mini40 trimaran into production if anyone is interested in buying a semi production model. http://www.aardvarkracing.co.uk/rc-foiler-tri/
  5. I think F18's and Corsair Pulse 600 are a different market not sure it will be a viable market though. It could be a nice modern replacement for the Tramp I'm not sure if they were a commercial success though.
  6. Looks like a Hedley Nicol clipper 25' with obligatory and ridiculous "I just need more space!" cabin modification.
  7. Way harsh! And neither fair nor accurate.Raw Nerve was the fastest boat in Australia for some years. Probably faster than any boat you've sailed. As fast as an ORMA 60? No. But Raw Nerve is half the size, less than half the cost, etc., etc., of an ORMA 60. Why does it need to be faster than an ORMA? An ORMA isn't as fast as Gitana XIII, but it doesn't make an ORMA a "brick" either. THere's always a bigger faster boat for enough money. Compare the "new" costs and annual operating costs to appreciate the huge price of an ORMA 60 vs. Raw Nerve. And I didn't mean to sound too testy. R
