Christian- Actually my mental image (in my mind's eye) is very much the flow of images you have presented. My concentration as a musician is more at the the music as an emotional subtext to the images- sort of a related ambient wall of sound (apologies to Mr. Spectre) that the images stand in front ...

Chris- Good step forward! Hey, if any of you would like a copy of My cd, Essays, let me know, and I'll send you one, gratis. Usually I would say listen to it on a download, but the cd is pretty audiophile in nature, and downloading doesn't do it justice. If you do not like it, that's ok, they make g...

Chris- I am assuming 'clubbed to death' is at least post punk, death metal, or thrash. As much as I like the metaphor of thrash, given the age of this class, and it's reputation as a classic...?? I know! Lieder! I always used to hear Shubert Lieder on my CRIT 650 (in my head), esp when on the cusp o...

Christian- If you'd like some different music- in a more world/classical vein, go to the members section, click on Paul Scott, click on the picture box, and you'll find my website which backs my CD Essays. Try clicking on Castleswreath, or the Bach Cello Suite, (wait for half of your life) and there...

These DIC's (that's a really terrible acronym, isn't it? How about D/IC's? Or ICD's?)look really great! Kudos, all!

Has anybody done a horizontally sliding/rotating/retracting daggerboard in a shaped daggerboard cassett? (I don't know the official name of it.) This was done a bit in Div 1 & Div 2 boards in the late 70's, and showed some promise. The foil basically was pulled up and forward at the same time above ...

Steve (& sfrosh)- When I have seen pics of the Vortex sailing, it seems that since the weather hull is flying a bit, and since the weather foil is the one that is providing upwind lift, that it is essentially a surface piercing foil like a leeboard, which is what lead to my question. So the daggerbo...

Sometimes it's hard for me to express complex ideas succinctly, and it did occur to me as I wrote the origional po...

sfrosh-

That said, how well does the Vortex go up wind (for any of the UK guys out there), given that as I understand it, the windward foil is for verical upwind (centreboard) lift, and the lee foil is for hydrofoil lift of the platform?

Hey all- I'm NOT trying to do a hydrofoil. Seattle is known mainly for 5K and under conditions. Or BIG chop when there is wind. What I'm trying to do is figure out a way to move the CE around while I'm sailing, and if a daggerboard is up while going downwind, a moving seat carraige is going to bang ...

A few questions- 1) If the seat does not slide, that is it extends out 2040mm on both sides, does it still have to weigh in at 12Kg? 2) Is it legal for leeboards to slide or pivot through the seat? 3) Is it OK to have the leeboards outside of the 1100mm max beam? Or, 4) Are leeboards considered part...

So where can I find the complete new rules? Like what is the minimum dimension for the bow? The stern? Freeboard in general? Do longitudinal concaves have to be limited to 1mm?

Ack!!
