Weight???

Interesting that they chose 8 feet 2 inches for the beam. .... Back to the Taipan 4.9 dimensions.

Any idea what it will rate on SCHRS? Are they shooting for the 104 niche?

The Viper 8.5 feet beam boats seem to optimize around 300.... Any idea if a narrow version will shift the weight a bit higher?

Ah the magic question...
Weight will be around 124 kg single sailor, 128 kg two up!
Standard is aluminum mast, carbon mast optional. Weight savings for the carbon mast probably 8-10lbs

2.5m is 8-2 and max width.

You have to figure band power and a min weight boat would be instant success.
I guess this is just called being lazy. You send your manufacturing to Asia in the same shop as your competition I guess it is no surprise you have a like heavy boat.

I suppose the French F16 market is playing the ratings game with trying to be 104 on the SCHRS and a sweetheart number. All fine and good for now, but what happens when they realize the SCHRS overcompensates for weight in its calculation and they change the formula? You now have a bunch of overweight boats for no particular reason.

I was wondering when NACRA was going to stop jerking us off.

Then again, it doesn't exist yet.


I'm boatless.

Better yet..

What's the list price for that puppy!

It says it's a carbon fiber epoxy hull. That's going to be some money!

I'm going to guess ~25,000 US...

I can sign you up for $19,750 USD single handed Uni Rig, or $20,900 sloop rig - ready to sail.

That's FOB, my warehouse, Buford, GA.

It's pretty sexy, looks just like a scaled down F20c (not surprising since they share the same design team).

No canted hulls? Are they allowed in F-16?

BTW, they are allowed, but is it worth it?

Do you know the answer to that? smile

If not there are a lot of fast boats that are getting it wrong.

It'll have to wait the PHC is fully committed to adjusting the F-18 number, especially for fat guys, and will not break their focus until the F-18 number is in the low 50s. Thank you and carry on.
I would think you'd be saving all of your old man energy for the butt whipping you're gonna get in Hyannis. I'll bet Team Punk is going to take it to you again. You're not helping the old man cause here, brother.
