Re: Indiana located... looking for a canoe

Stand by lonbordin, one of the Clarks will see this before long. They seem to know where most of the ICs are lurking in the US.

Re: Carbon Fibre Tillers

Colin,
I'm using a 28mm x 1.5mm carbon tube. It's more than strong enough.

Well done Jim. I had a look on both a laptop and an iMac. It was all very readable and easy to navigate. Thanks for your efforts.

Re: Which Trophy?

I have some photos of the Challenge Cup. I can't seem to figure out how to post them here.

I'll post a picture over on the DC thread on Sailing Anarchy.

The trophy is in Del Olsen's possession right now. If you are coming to the Richmond Worlds you'll be able to have a peek.

Re: Measurement Practice

I am fairly certain that the intention of rule 5e is to check for bumps and hollows along the BMS, both fore and aft and athwartships. Leaving the 2m tape stationary on the centerline does not achieve that. Relying on a spirit of the rules clause to catch whatever hull shape it is that the measurer ...

We'll find you a boat and a nice place to stay. You'll be in the area anyway and your people need you. How can you refuse?

Re: Adjustable shroud setup

Hmmm.... I am fairly sure the load on the shroud is limited by your righting moment. Once you are hiking off the end of the seat static loads are at their max. Sail area and wind strength have nothing to do with what that load is except that they affect when you get out to the end of the seat. So th...

Re: Adjustable shroud setup

The load on that primary block is the same as the load on the shroud. The load on the cascade is some fraction of that depending how many blocks from the shroud it is. For instance, I have a single block with a becket on the shroud and two single blocks on the chainplate. Those blocks share the shro...

Re: Adjustable shroud setup

Steve, By my calculations your mast should have fallen over the side. With my 90kgs on the end of the seat I figure there's about 550kgs on the weather shroud. Coming off a wave that may, what, double? Couldn't be too much more or my mast would have fallen over too. I have a Harken #313 wire block o...

Yes, on my boat the rails are about 100mm lower at the stern.

Re: Chines and dancefloor

Very nice Arne!

It's interesting that you have made the freeboard relatively high at the stern. Are you at the minimum height at the beam measurement station?

Will the hull be carbon/foam?
