    Unless I've heard wrong...... Eightball, first to finish, first overall, only boat to finish?

    That would be a good thing but that didn't happen in the last few races. Also, being in an experimental "powered" division is one thing but they would still be eligible for an overall trophy which...

    You smart women think alike..... that is the exact thing Kathryn said to me. Of course I am the one who loses out but someone had to bring this to light in a way that got some attention as NONE...

    Bumping up this thread.

    Well, the PHRF committee has for some reason provided a rating certificate for this fully powered boat that completely breaks Rule 52, manually operating your boat. As...

    There is very little chance a Class 40 could break the Open 50 record of 8 days, 12 hours...... of course if the stars aligned it's possible. To give a comparison a much lighter, faster, longer,...

    Well using PredictWind is certainly much easier to use than Expedition but not legal for most racing as the routing is not done on the boat but using an outside server. I asked because I do recall...

    Isn't the requirement for a fixe mount manual above and below deck? Might be other races I'm thinking of.

    Use them as Battery 1 & 2, not as a single battery. Same age, same capacity, same chemistry, same manufacturer then doing a single bank is OK but I still wouldn't. It's nice to know you have a...

    I've actually been in touch with the builder of the Reverso. About $12k landed in the SF Bay Area. Really neat bit of kit. I have the contact info. of a guy locally who bought one so hopefully...

    That doesn't mean the battery is good. You should put a similar load on it like you will when you race.... so at least 5A and let it run it's course. You don't want greatly diminished capacity...

    I do too..... but those boats should not be racing against boats that use manual power. Transpac has a first to finish (nearly always a power assist vessel) and the handicap Barn Door for manual...

    I agree, just not for the race track. How is it fair that someone gets to short-tack up the city front and be totally fresh for a spinnaker hoist at the weather mark while you can barely get the...

  21. Power-Assisted Sailing - the Slippery Slope

    This thread is to put out information to the SSS members about a slippery slope that in my opinion has now become an edge of a cliff.

    This has to do with one of the US Sailing rules which is:

    Deployment and cavitation seem to be the concern. Outboard running gas in an outboard well is VERY dangerous. A fan needs to be run to evacuate the fumes to prevent an explosion. The Hobie 33,...
