Re: Measurement Practice

Thanks Steve. A bit hard to describe, isn't it?

I guess some destruction testing will keep me in catharsis until the wording comes down.

Pictures of strings on hulls would be nice 8) .....

Re: Measurement Practice

No hurry on this, but while it's fresh, and if anyone is willing to respond, any info on how canoes are measured, post 2014 worlds?

I hadn't realized that canoes had such a low wind limit....

Congratulations to everyone involved!

Re: Measurement Practice

Thinking within Steve Clark's (USA Div.) M2 intent, I don't see chine rails being legal mainly because of their interplay with rocker. (I tried a hull effectively built without rocker, thinking that heel would create it, even control it. Didn't work very well- and a paucity of freeboard didn't help....

Re: Measurement Practice

The 2m tape can slide anywhere on the hull, at any angle defined by the interplay of the relative designed aesthetic gravitational pulls of the keel, waterline and gunwale, as long as the 2m tape is centered on the (infinite extension) of the BMS. I will go with that. I'd argue that is in the spirit...

Re: Measurement Practice

+1

For reasons unclear to myself, I'm still waiting to order build materials....

I think I'll go with the only measurer (I think) with the grace to respond (gracias, Colin), so I pull the trigger tomorrow?

Re: Measurement Practice

Why not define the 2m tape as a section of a buttock line?

Re: Measurement Practice

I couldn't post pics here, but Canoe Anarchy in Dinghy Anarchy let me, so If you go over to the IC page there you'll see it more succinctly than my prose can manage

Re: Measurement Practice

What does the 2m tape do when it goes around a chine? Does it fold? Crease? Go straight out into space? (I worked on a response for 2 hours and I still don't understand where the end of the 2m tape goes- like with a 30" beam square chine hull, where does the 2 m tape go at the chine, just before the...

Re: Measurement Practice

So as long as external chines are outside the reach of the 1m tape I'm good!

Thanks Steve-

Measurement Practice

I've been asking how canoes are measured over on Dinghy Anarchy, and it was suggested that I post over here. Over on Sailing Anarchy I go by Amati (that's the sloop in my avatar). I live in the Inland Northwest of the US of A. I'm the guy who posted the canoe with the planing shoe, but whether it is...
