    Fancy a well known F40 Trimaran in the U.K. for not a lot ?

    Repair /reinforce the bow,  put a sleeve in that mast, laminate it back together. Not that hard, cool toy for cheap. Go sailing for a summer and build a wing mast next winter.   Some old F40 spars (usually alloy) are popping up for sale here and there occasionally as well. Winter after that...

    New listing with updated pictures:  https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/175009343332 Seems like the forestay attachment got ripped off the bow.

    Grainger 8.5 and hull design article.

    I haven't started, and to be honest I might never start. Work is getting in the way, I've been basically living and working in Italy, Sweden and Switzerland for the last couple of years, so not a lot of time to spend in my own shed in the Netherlands.  On the other hand, it would be one of the...

    inexperienced couple buy a p.o.s. catamaran

    Hell yeah, girls who go through so much shit and are still giggling happily, wifey material right there. Awaiting for your YouTube channel Jess, show some sideboob and you'll have half of the forum subscribed instantly. I'll subscribe even without, forgot what tits even look like anyway.

    Mini Globe Race 2024 - Classe Mini 580

    No, it's built over frames. Not really one design either with all the different options for plywoods and glass. Plenty of room to play with the hull shape a little as well, few mills here and there are easily blamed on poor alignment and bad craftsmanship. Classrules are not very tight and...

    How about a The Ocean Race thread?

    Vendée globe seems to do a lot better, probably because it's more of a race than a sponsor village world tour, with a few boats following it around to put some kind of 'extreme' story behind it. Stop selling the race to sponsors and start selling it to people again.

    VOR AUCTION - OPPORTUNITIES LOST & STILL THERE?

    Go back to the 70's and allow lifting foils and rudders. Ok, the 70's where never a hit by numbers, but offered close racing, plenty of extreme, and where probably the coolest boats around, even the underfunded ones. Most races had an older generation boat competing for the cost of an 65...

    dutch ac entry

    There hasn't been built a serious raceboat in the Netherlands since the ABN Amro Volvo 70's  though, and those where built by Killian Busche and his team.  Anything built so far in the Netherlands is either quite crude in comparison or has been seriously overweight. But yes, Holland composites...
