Now hold on there stud, talk like that will get you kicked out of the circle. Sometimes I think you like to say stuff just to spin people up, kind of like that Todd guy (pick your favourite, they all apply).

The notches idea is interesting, but the friction is needed just to get the axle to the CoG.

My crew is 7. When he's old/big enough to sail something other than a Wave, it will most likely be a Hobie 16.

I don't have a circle, I'm only loyal until the next new shiny thing comes along. If I had a spare $40k and any friends I'd be sitting on the stoop waiting for UPS to drop off my new Flying Phantom. Depending on what happens with the a-cat's with their rules and foiling, I might finally pull the trigger on an A. Or, I'll pull out entirely.


I'm boatless.

You know foiling is a fad, right?

An ex coworker and I wanted to build a trebuchet that could launch people. strap it to an old pontoon boat, and head to the lake with it. In the end we decided it would end up killing someone.

There is probably a YouTube video of that. No telling what people are up to these days...

I like the trebouchet that launches the car about 200 meters. That should get your boat from beach to water pretty quickly... what condition it arrives would be unknown, however.
