  1. Apart from this year where they haven't had a single gun....
  2. 1948... with a rotating mast? Is that original? If it is it must be one of the older open classes, so either a 14(but they banned trapezes for ages, maybe this was the one that upset the applecart) or one of the first merlin's( too early for a rocket) I'm going with an international 14

    AIS has transfuture 7 doing 12 kts into the harbour at the moment. The dolphin on the side does not make up for how ugly that thing looks

    to be honest, ETNZ wouldn't look much different if you flipped it, you would still end up trashing the wing and towing it back turtled. The critical bit is not putting it in the piss in the first place...

  14. Weta - although possibly not the cheapest option
  15. With everything that you have suggested it will be awesome if you can get it near to minimum weight. When I have some free time next year I dont mind helping you with some of the boring jobs if you would like the help All fairing help greatly appreciated and paid in rum/beer Hopefully will be able to setup a dedicated finishing/paint shop area separate to the laminating area
  16. yeah, frames were cnc. The dxf's from Ian already had the overcut so no messing needed either. answers: 1. Carbon - price difference isn't too significant when you are building yourself 2. Err... maybe. I'll probably end up putting the foil cases in now, and think about the foils for a while 3. Short low cabin, the intention is that creature comforts will be limited to what's needed for racing and day sailing at the moment. 4. One rudder. Two only really makes sense to me if you are consistently flying the centre hull. The single rudder in the cassette also makes for easy beaching if
  17. and now it looks like this
  18. after saturday it looked like this
  19. Maybe time to unsticky this conversation?
  20. Thanks for the offer, I'm very keen on going for a yacht sometime soon. I should be ok for a vacuum pump, the little PVR pulls a good vacuum, and I can put a vacuum cleaner onto the manifold for the bulk pull down after closing the bag as well.
