So 100 days to go and 131 entries. What surprises me is the lack of the classic racers. Really only a few celebrating the occasion - Fidelis, Love and War, Mark Twain. Kialoa and Natelle are there but are regular/recent contestants. I was hoping a few more of the older big boats would be going to wind back the clock. I wonder why it hasn't caught the imagination like I thought it would? Stability? Cost? Motor power? Bow sprits?

Will I have to wait for the 100th to really see a celebration of the Hobart races over the years?

Stability issues which equals cost unless you have a tame naval architect that will sign of  on anything.

Hardest issue for old boats especially after recent changes.

To add:

If a boat passed before it’s no guarantee it will again. The number to pass is higher, the process is different. If you want to appeal your hill file you  need a 3D Hull survey + naval architect STARTS at about $5000. Still no guarantee that it will be accepted. Then you have construction standards & mods to be signed off. Or survey for pre ABS. ORCI has plenty of hurdles. CYCA were positive & helpful. 

Must make some older, eligible boats, worth their additional lead weight in Gold I reckon :)

Having got a pre 1 December 1986 boat in to Hobart trim I can say it is expensive and a lot of work even before the recent changes

Unlock some equity & you can do it all again! Between 2014 and 2018, the median price in West Hobart went up by 75.1 per cent, followed by South Hobart (up 71.7 per cent) and Sandy Bay (up 66 per cent). 

You going to RQ tomorrow night?

Two changes one is the ground tackle safety gear removal but the tweak with that has meant many older boat that where 115 easy can’t reproduce those numbers now

one boat I know very well went from 118 to 112 after been 117 to 118 for almost 20 years through 4 complete inclination and freeboards 

the old numbers are not reproducing

Wow, ok that’s a significant change then. What sort of designs are you thinking of, when you say they are no longer making the numbers?

Older fast boats and some very new wide boat which are having trouble natching earlier numbers

not sure it is not just Australia as a pogo 1250 failed when measured here
