That is one purposeful, powerful, clean looking machine. I'd love to see some pics of it in 12K and chop. Chomp chomp.

Ben's comments have got me thinking too, and, depending on my bloodwork next month, I'm going to decide what to do- DC or an idea along more along Ben's simpler less expensive lines, generally, that I'm calling a West Coast Canoe. At this point, I must admit I'm leaning more towards the alternate ro...

B.O.A.T. = Blew Only Another Thousand.

B.O.A.T. Unit = One Thousand (Fill in Currency Here)

I believe that owning a boat fits into Click and Clack's definition of a Capital Depreciation Fund.

Jim- That's my bet. And that's why, I think, big wave boards (guns) taper so much to the stern. If I can just finesse the apparently (modelled) awful wave resistance with that shape - more fullness forward. Maybe max fullness at 50% of length is a good approach? The Serenity Sailboard (which is long...

Chris- Looks good! Funny, .53-.54 Cp & 26-28 sq f WS is where i've been gravitating lately. Is the WS computed with blades? Zoom sail experience involved in your rig? Although your reasoning for a sloop rig does make a ot of sense. We met down at the beach at Golden Gardens a few months ago when you...

Since the rule states that the IC sailor must have the ability to lower sails, is it ok to carry extra sails, as long as you're only flying the legal area of sails at any given time? Is it ok to change sails on the water between races?

Hi all- The discussion above is why I've been obsessing on old school big wave boards (also known as guns- like you need a big one to kill an elephant)- paddle out = low SLR, surf back in = high SLR, with a (welcome) hesitation at the top of the wave. Also my experience with long windsurfers- 15'-16...

1) 5b- "no convex curve shall have a radius of less than 60mm..." If I'm assuming right that this BML curve combo language is talking about beam cross section shape(s), Chines = ? Is the intention of the interaction of 5b & 5e (2nd sentence of 5e) to keep concave beam curves above the waterline? Pau...
