    What he said. If you ever take the time to look, typical torque rating on wheel bolts are around 60lbs. Typical mechanic's air wrenches are set way higher than that

    OTUSA was SLOWER than ETNZ in the final race

    How many Louis Vitton Cups have you won?How many AC races have you won? Were you onboard OTUSA, ETNZ, LR or Artemis? What have you done (other than register a user id) for anyone to respect your opinion? Yes, I respect DB's opinion. He's earned it.

    They don't exist. CUPINFO pretty much quit updating after Race 18.

    OTUSA was SLOWER than ETNZ in the final race

    Nope, 'That nite' refers to the debrief after race 18 and the comments after 'the next day' are about Race 19. DB pretty much says the same thing about _both_ Race 18 and 19: " ... they just sailed past us ...". At the beginning of the interview DB started out with " ... After thinking about it...

    Dean Barker interview on 3news.co.nz (http://www.3news.co.nz/Campbell-Live-talks-to-Dean-Barker/tabid/817/articleID/315390/Default.aspx) from around 11:20 "... In race 18, We were powerless to do anything, we felt we were sailing a good race ... We talked about it during debrief that nite and...

    Why was OTUSA faster ?

    "...top of the course... similiar wind and current, .... pretty much identical height and speed ...". Real exact terms. Where is this in the race? What From 13:55 to 14:12 of the race? WHen they were 670-720 meters apart? And you are going to "assume" they are in the same wind and current...

    OTUSA was SLOWER than ETNZ in the final race

    Actually I said that it was about the same. but if we dive into it 0.875knots times 4 minutes (30 seconds per tack top to bottom speed) would give you a 100m advantage. ... But 100m is not 603m .. What is the difference between "about the same" and "no advantage"? " ... 0.875knots times 4...

    OTUSA was SLOWER than ETNZ in the final race

    I agree, too many people making conclusions and assumption based on little (if any) facts. I also find the general lack of deductive reasoning skills in some of the posts annoying. The original premise was: Tactics were the only reason OTUSA won race 19. What is being totally dismissed as...

    OTUSA was SLOWER than ETNZ in the final race

    So little time, so many stupid posts I've repeatedly asked you what other "data" you are using and pointed out (in multiple ways) that http://live.virtualeye.tv/acstats/13092519_acstats.html does not contain anywhere near the level of detail to prove any of your conclusions and you continue to...

    OTUSA was SLOWER than ETNZ in the final race

    You stated: "... IF you don't know where to find tidal flow models of SFO ... ".and " ... you cite static tide stations ... " No, my primary reference was to SFPORTS where you can get NOAA Flow models like the one attached at the end of this post and THE SOURCE for the graphics referenced in...

    OTUSA was SLOWER than ETNZ in the final race

    Good reading comprehension skills: I gave you two sources, can YOU name any? Rolex Big Boat Series, Pegasus 52, Philippe Kahn skipper, Ken Read -Tactician, Race 2 September 18, 2005 (and I offer you the same proof you offer me for all your "factual" statements) Edit: Since you apparently have...

    OTUSA was SLOWER than ETNZ in the final race

    I'm not sure where the graphic came from. It could have come from data supplied by the USGS SFPORTS model or from a proprietary model (which the RC used for calculating current flow used in the max wind calculations) And if you are as experienced as you claim to be, then you would also know that...

    OTUSA was SLOWER than ETNZ in the final race

    Your whole justification for a detailed, tack by tack description is based on a "... graphic during the video"? Please god save me from morons. What time was the graphic based on? Ans: You don't have that information. Exactly what where the values of each of the arrows displayed on the...

    OTUSA was SLOWER than ETNZ in the final race

    Again, I see a whole bunch of detailed analysis based on very little information. Nowhere, in this thread, have I seen where the level of detail necessary to prove the guesses/"analysis" supplied in this thread I do not see: - A minute by minute map (with direction and strength) with the ebb...
