    Coolboats to admire

    Kinda looks OK on that schooner, but again, not done so well, IMO. To illustrate my point, here's two clipper bows from the, Farr Office - Big Red's works a treat (the concave is not overworked) but not so much on NZ Endeavour. She wasn't as fast either!!!

    Yep. Seems war crimes are sometimes agreeable on both sides.

    She certainly was a beauty. That's at Whangarei town basin, is it not?

    Luna Rossa Challenge. AC 37

    And quite a bit more expensive, I shouldn't wonder.

    Luna Rossa Challenge. AC 37

    Just make sure the standing ends are not snipped too short. You never know when a splice might be needed in the future. ;-)

    Good to see the Swiss back in the game.

    Is that why the hull shape has filled-out - so it no longer fits its cradle? ;-)

    Wow. She looks quick. A proper skimmer.

    Nice boat. But, I do not like that clipper bow at all, Digits. Much prefer the spoon bow on, Forever. Looks like a couple of unfriendly orcas have nibbled the front off. But she's very nice below decks and I've no doubt, no slug. But speaking of spoon bows, nobody did/does them better than, Des...

    Night Runner is on the market

    Lovely boat. One of Bob Perry's, IINM. She turned up here, sans rig.

    Lovely, Mummery 40' cruiser for sale, on TradeMe. Shame about all the COTB and that hard dodger, but not at all irredeemable. https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/boats-marine/yachts/keeler/listing/3430763928?bof=LvVQs3Fc

    THE IMOCA thread, single/double handed & TOR

    Really a good idea to see all that high density foam stuck on that deckhead (beams).

    THE IMOCA thread, single/double handed & TOR

    It'd be like driving on 21" rims with no adaptive dampers. As jarring as fuck. I need things a bit more refined these days. ;-)

    THE IMOCA thread, single/double handed & TOR

    Ha, ha. Yeah. I'm sure. 15 knots used to scare the bejeezus out of me, DtM - and mostly still in sight of land. I just can't get my head around this foiling lark (assisted foiling, in this case) adjustment. But, hell, I even had trouble using my ATM card yesterday! :oops:

    THE IMOCA thread, single/double handed & TOR

    Fuck that. Far too bloody uncomfortable. And there was nothing about that trip that made me say, "I wish I was 30 years younger". ;-)

    N Not saying "hunting" is wrong at all. In fact, as far as I know, there are no 'no shooting' signs posted in the rules. Just trying to get a better understanding of the context.

    Thanks, Stinger. Looks to me as if the Aussies had to turn, to avoid a collision. My vote is with the umpires.
