Hey, how's that Brains Beer? Sounds like it might lead to a loss of a few cells! <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

I know we are completely off topic <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />
They have a great variety of beers in the UK. We only have a few in Ireland. Stick to the Guinness <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
A miserable afternoon in Dublin - we are settling down to watch the Scotland - France game (played in Scotland) on TV now. Enjoy your game later - with the Guinness <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Watched the Shamrocks play the Wallabies at my local park last year.... It was good to see a northern hemisphere side stand up down under even if it was for only 10 minutes of the first half.. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

what would be good would be have the tri-nations expand to be the quad-nations... Boks, Blacks, Wallabies, Pumas... Actually sounds like the perfect world cup semi finals!! <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

The Pumas really need some top level international competition to slot into.. About time IRU did something!!

Meanwhile the "Storm" starts its super-14 this week.. So another sailing season is winding up... <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif" alt="" /> But the good news Bundy rum sponsors my local club!!

Mark as you well know, we in England have to make a handicap for ourselves to then bring out the best in us, not sure why we do that but I would guess that the recent WC where Wales lost badly to some pretty low order teams and for England to go onto the final would sort of say it all.

Back to the RC-16, Coremat is its weight handicap, you will never get a light boat using Coremat but you will get cheap production and a very strong structure. I'm sure the moulds could be adapted very easily to make full Carbon foam Kevlar core but it would come at a cost of labour and material expense which would then lower the weight but raise the price to a more European level ( Stealth ) <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

Didnīt want to reply about rugby as we already some have fireworks here! but Pumas should play six nations, as all our players are up there in Europe, if not, at least let them play for the country of their respective clubs <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
How about Felipe playing for Ireland?? <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />


Regarding costs I've exhange some mails with Greg Goodall last year and I agree with him that the F16 should maintain them low to have a succesfull class as the F18.

For weight we can apply same Divinycell sandwich core as our F18.

The Viper is around 125kg so we can be there as well. But weīre not modifying the hull to adapt daggers yet, although it can be 'easily' done with current mould.

They have applied for the 6 (7) Nations. But in the meantime we are very happy to have Felipe in Leinster <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> Ireland haven't done too well in the Southern Hemisphere recently - we haven't learnt all the wrestling moves as Brian O'Driscoll found out <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />

Am I right in thinking that game didn't go too well for your side <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

Just to keep on topic <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> A well designed skeg shape can work very well. The more modern shape of the Dart 16 enables it to point much higher than the Dart 18.

It was a great game to watch but -my team- lost in the final 36 seconds when the other team scored on an incredible drive down the field. Oh well, there's always Next Year!

Just curious if there has been any more progress on the boat?


Ryan - H16 I prefer to go sailing because baseball, football, tennis, and golf only require 1 ball!

Just to show some progress of our 1st 16 delivered with racing rig, new rudders and castings, selft tack, spreaders etc

Launched last weekend but I sailed her yesterday.
Quite lively and responsive sailing comparing with the F18.
Is like going from Tornado to F18 feeling.

Not fully F16 as we put an 8mt mast and no dagger, but the concept has catched up, and sales of the 16 already equals F18 and we project to double them this season, for sure we will have a 16 class too along the F18.

But I'm reluctant to call her an F16, just 50cm short on mast... jje


Cheers,
Martin

P.S: Main sheet is not correctly set, but I want to show the pics anyway.
Torpedo Tube still there also <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> , thereīs a step at keel line below the tube too.

I'm absolutely convinced that a boardless and slightly simplied F16 (like the RC16) can be a hot ticket sales wise !

So well done, hope to see more of it in the future !

I agree, well done, I hope it all goes well for you, and we start to see some of your boats around the place.
