Vudu 3.8 and we'll have a website up sometime soon at vuducats.com where anyone can pay their class fee and download the plans in the desired format they want.


That is very clever!

What is the deal with the names? Two F-12's that look like a great start to a class and one is named Dark Side and the other Vudu (sounds like a different spelling of voodoo). How about naming these great little cats something that gives visions of performance sailing rather than the occult? Again...great boats...but the names leave much to be desired.

Bob

Maybe the kids should vote for the names ? It's their boat right ? It should be cool for them not for the grown-ups.

For the record while the DS does stand for Dark Side (in my head anyway) it is a DS12 not a Dark Side 12.
Enjoy the exposure of a youngster to the "Dark Side" of sailing, without fanfare. Let the DS12, or any F12, be the enabler. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

Mono-slugs are the dark side...When one steps up to cat sailing then they have entered the light...

It is all part of a conspiracy designed by what will ultimatly become the Universal World Power. I think George B. is behind the naming of the boats....

That's the democrats' version. The republicans blame Al Qaeda.

This is a pic of the kids checking out their new boat. So far Billy and Grahame have built enough hull shells for 2.5 boats.
The boat now has a name .... Vudu 3.8 and we'll have a website up sometime soon at vuducats.com where anyone can pay their class fee and download the plans in the desired format they want.
Cheers

Then maybe the boat should be LS (Light Side), or FS (Fast Side).

But that is for the other thread. I don't see anything wrong with "Kiwi."

Isn't Tornado a terrible name? A Tornado is destructive, dangerous and, sometimes, mortal. It destroys everything on its path. It is REAL evil.

Vudu, on the other hand, is a type of sourcery that is unlikely to have the power to harm anyone. It is pagan superstition, IMAGINARY evil.

Vudu evokes magic, supernatural forces and phantoms, which is not so bad, considering the video games available nowadays. But real Vudu isn't worse than a real Tornado. Think about it.

"Vudu, on the other hand, is a type of sourcery that is unlikely to have the power to harm anyone. It is pagan superstition, IMAGINARY evil."

A Tornado is a force of nature...Voodoo is a force in the supernatural realm. Hardly comparable in destructive power.
One can destroy the body the other the soul.

Voodoo is not imaginary...it is very real...the Bible calls the demons behind such activities as "familiar spirits". One of satan’s greatest tools is getting people to believe he doesn't exist. You may or may not believe in God or Satan...but that doesn't change the fact that they exist...

Getting back to the boat names...One can see all the evil one can stand by turning on the nightly news...when a parent is looking for a boat for their innocent child, the last thing they should have to deal with is Voodoo. Again…the boats are great, the designs look sweet, the designers have done a good job…how about a better name?…any name without an evil connotation to it…?

Regards,
Robert

And the last thing anyone would like to deal with at sea is a Tornado.

On the other hand, falling from the border of our flat earth directly to hell would be even worse...

BTW - another "one of satan’s greatest tools" is getting people to believe the earth is round. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

I'm sure its still coming. Its important to remember that the people behind the F12 designs are doing it for free and the boats are being home built by enthusiastic amateurs, as a result if life gets in the way every now and then it is to be expected.

If you don't like the names now wait till they start naming their boats.
My daughters already got the big side stickers for DS 009
