clicky, clicky? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejiBsOiq1wwPerhaps someone was quick enough to download it, and would be kind enough to share privately?
wait. you can do that? I mean that would be like learning how to drive both on the right. and the left.I really enjoy the tiller in racing, and I really enjoy the wheels when cruising.
The only thing the First 36 has really going against it, is the price. I'm afraid it will be what prevents this boat from being a true success in the market.
Frankly... I think it is anything but.what do you think of that profile?
I guess it really is something distinct.
but, but, but. the sliding sink in the head? lol.It's not as revolutionary as some think
shame about that video. it almost looked like it was shot by a sailor..Video... this is a raw (unofficial) video shot during the first few sailing attempts. I shared it with some friends, but apart from that it is an (copyright) issue and had to remove ... for now.
where in Aus are you located?Cant believe the negative comments about everything although I guess that is the nature of forums. too me it looks fantastic and apart from the draft suits me fine and I have had lots of boats/dinghies over 62 years of sailing. its not a stripped out racer but it offers high speeds combined with comfort. Anything that plans 2 sailing has to be good for fun and twilight social races along with competitiveness while full racing. I ordered mine through the local dealer back in Nov last year before the price was fixed and the specs were not clear. The purpose of the boat is just what I want and can't wait for delivery. Other people might have different desires in a boat.
As an aside on wheels versus tiller I have an replica 1889 herreshoff coquina that I built and steers with ropes to the rudder ie no wheel and movement is opposite to a tiller. Now that is not intuitive while steering and swapping between boats is tricky..
