It seems mr. Geovoile’s account on SA is gone.
Bear in mind that Malizia essentially drifted around for two days while they repaired the rig.So, indeed, Boris Mercedes G Class styled Imoca has shown some qualities under certain conditions, but, Boris got his statistics a bit wrong am afraid, and Kevin's more refined, original Citroën DS styled IMOCA will win this leg, and more than by a mile !!
Any real cushy cushion disassociates your butt from the motion of the boat and ends up requiring constant bracing to keep you oriented to the boat motion. It's not as if you're sitting there reading "The Story of O" or the "Brothers Karamazov" in our bunk. You're trying to steer the boat.That's about what I was thinking, though 4 different sized crew members. Even just closed cell pieces like backpacking pads would be something. Belts are a good idea, a concussion alone on VG would be a real problem, eg. Idk, maybe the flat seats are to keep you from falling asleep. 😊
In what I coin the “tracker wars”, in which SA members build much better VOR trackers imho than Geovoile, next to Forss @Volodia must be mentioned here. Parts of the java script and functionality he used, which could be code shared under a creative commons license, are now running on Geovoiles website. Which is the DTL/speed over 24 hrs/rank timeline for the leg.It's still here, it's a bit like "You can check out any time you like / But you can never leave!".
That said, he last posted in 2016 and was last seen in 2018. There was a lively discussion for a while, but when most here made it clear they liked the Forss tracker better he gave up. He is still getting a lot of the French business and doesn't need the abuse from SA.
BTW, Forss has not been seen since Covid, and like so many others of the old guard, is being missed dearly.
Yes I was comparing marine with marineThis is due to the short baseline in the marine units though.
Longer baseline units like they use in weather stations etc - like Vaisala ones - are accurate to 0.1 deg or even more precision. And in 3D.
But they're quite large, as the baseline is multiples of decimeter.
Bullshit, Geovoile published that kind of info ages ago. I have seen his work from day 1.Parts of the java script and functionality he used, which could be code shared under a creative commons license, are now running on Geovoiles website. Which is the DTL/speed over 24 hrs/rank timeline for the leg.
