Well, we'll see both builds next to one another at the Zandvoort event in 5 months time so we can indeed directly compare the two.

Mirjam, are you coming ?

Is "No thanks vs YES please!" a cosmetic deference or are you expressing an opinion based on something? <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

Mirjam,
If have to make a comment on this but you are saying on point 1 screws vs nuts and bolts but you did not see the European style VWM Blade yet i think.
About the bulkheads and stringers it looks to me that you know how the VWM hulls are build but before you saying this please be carefull with that because you obviously don't know how they are build.
It is not difficult to have comments on something but if you do there must be a good foundation for it, i personally think.

Regards,
Hans

The proof is in the pudding. Until some one sails a Dynautic against a Vectorworks, it's all opinion.

Vectorworks molds were shaped by a 5 axis CNC router, were the Dynautic molds?

Just guessing but maybe that would explain the "Round keel vs flat keel" approach… <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

If the boats are within a few percent in speed, it will be the best skipper that wins. If you want people to think your boat is the best, don't worry too much about building it the best, just make sure you put the best skippers on it.

Lets face it, a skipper looking to enter the F16 class with a view to winning is most likely to buy whatever boat is winning the most regatta's. They won't be looking to see which boat has the most bulkheads and could care less if the mold was made from a plywood plug or a milled foam plug.

Winners in every area of life know that winning is in the details. If one could get a mathematically accurate hull from a plug with extreme accuracy in symmetry, and a true representation of the designers concept, I would say all things being equal, a "winner would seek out such an advantage. While your "average" sailor would blow it off as unimportant. Yes top sailors could win most races on a door, broom stick and sheet for a sail...but when top competitors are competing against each other they look for every advantage.

Bob

I'm just mentioning some differences between Dynautic and the boat I've seen in Katwijk some time ago I must add. I've also seen pictures from Florida before you were a dealer. From the info I have seen I noted the differences. As pictures speak louder than words....

P.S. Was this a personal, chairman, dealer or orginiser comment?

Were is this line of reasoning exactly going to ?

I've seen both makes in detail and I can name a few more differences not all in favour of the Dynautic Blade. Afterall no boat is ever perfect.

The European style VWM Blade F16 (version 2007) Hans is referring to is not the same as the 2005 VWM Blade F16 you saw at Noordwijk. Hans used his many years of experience in boat building and repairs to arrive at this 2007 version of the VWM Blade F16. There are some very clever things incorporated in this new version. Things like platform stiffness have been doubled.

You can not possibly know the make-up of this 2007 version of the Blade F16 or even of the 2006 version of it. Therefor your comments like :"bulkheads vs more bulkheads" are remarkable to say the least.

I can testify that Hans is correct in all his comments so far and that your statements are less so.

Who are you exactly ?

And I made these statement in name of all the roles I have played in the past. Chairman, organisor, part time dealor, advisor to both VWM and Dynautic, and the rest.

I didn't see any boat in Noordwijk but in Katwijk. The boats owner is called Jaap as I've been told. According to my information you have been at Dynautic in 2004. At that time no composite Blade was present at Dynautic, so what are you talking about knowing Dynautic's products?
Your reaction is exactly what I've expected.
Why are the previous chairman and current chairman located at the same sailing club?
I personally think, there is a conflict of interest when a dealer is a chairman of an organisation and an organiser of an event. Even more when a relative of the dealing, organising chairman does the so called measuring of the boats.
I wasn't aware of any changes made in 2005 or 2006, so you are admitting the previous sold boats weren't that good afterall.
I'm just a student with ears and a memory.

That is true. Jaap H. is a member there, my typo.

That is not correct.

And alot more has happened then just having been there.

It is only you who is talking about 2004, not me.

With respect to the non-timber Blade, I have not seen that one in person, but then again who did ?

This didn't bother Dynautic when I was doing the exact same things in relation to them.

You got yourt answer there. Any Watersport verbond measurer can do your boat. In laymans terms, you can choice any measurer you want, Pieter Saarberg happens to be a long time measurer of the Watersport verbond, it would have been downright silly to ban him from measuring F16's.

Quote

I wasn't aware of any changes made in 2005 or 2006, so you are admitting the previous sold boats weren't that good afterall.


Are you claiming that the first boats by Dynautic were [censored] because they are now launching a totally redesigned carbon version ?


Quote

I'm just a student with ears and a memory.



It is very nice of you to remind us of these traits, but I don't think anyone argued otherwise.

My question still remains.

Were are you going with this line of reasoning ?

If you have problems with the way things have turned as the are then please come to the zandvoort event and argue you case in front of the class members and people you accuse of having conflicts of interests. Currently you are nothing more then an anonymous handle on an internet forum. This is a status wholly unsatisfactory for the insinuations you are making.

Come to Dynautic on tuesday 12:00 so you can meet me in person.
Tell me how to become a chairman and take my worries away.

Mirjam,
When i did answer your first post i thought , this is giving some discussion but oke.When you put something down you must be having a good background for it and in my upinion you did not had that so i made the response.
I will answer the points you are reffering to , so the air will be cleared.

Quote: Why are the previous chairman and current chairman located at the same sailing club.

I don't know why we are both members of the same club and he is driving a Nissan and i drive a Ford, i am member for 22 years of that club and Wouter became also member. So i don't see your point here.

Quote: I personally think, there is a conflict of interest when a dealer is a chairman of an organisation.

Yes i am trying to sell the VWM build hulls/boats and i think i am making good boats.Yes i am chairman of the F16GC
but you forget that i am not making the decisions on my own but i am controlled by the other members of the Governing Council and that there is a good coörporation between these people to make the F16 class a proffesional class and not to make the bussiness of somebody bigger.

QUOTE: and an organiser of an event

No, i am not organising the Global Challenge 2007 but the sailing club WVZ is organising the event.Yes, i do some advising to organisers to make the event as good as possible for the F16 boats, so that all the sailors who will come over make the event to a succes.

QUOTE:Even more when a relative of the dealing, organising chairman does the so called measuring of the boats.

No,i am not doing the measurement/checking of the boats because i am not a measurer and have nothing to say about the measurements during the event. That's the reason why there is a chief measurer at the event. So i don't know who did tell you that i do the measurement but that person is wrong.

I think everything is clear for everybody now and that if you want to now more than ,again, please contact me and i will try to answer your questions.


Best regards,

Hans Klok

Oh please! Boat builders and dealers have an interest in the promotion of the classes that they sell boats into. Everywhere you go in this sport you will find dealers and builders doing a huge amount of voluntary work to promote the classes that we enjoy sailing in. Last time I went to a UK F18 Nationals, it was sponsored by Hobie. Conflict of interest? The F18 international secretary general was, until recently, the UK Nacra representative. Conflict of interest?

Exactly what sort of conspiracy do you think is going on here? I bought my VWM Blade from Catamaranparts before the F16 association was formed, and before the Zandvoort event was even conceived. Are you seriously suggesting that there is some arrangement whereby VWM ship us slightly over-sized main sails or something so that us VWM Blade sailors can get a tiny, fractional advantage at this one event? Or is there some great conspiracy between Hans and the Zandvoort race committee to set courses that somehow favour VWM Blades over Dynautic Blades?

Or is your conspiracy theory more financial? That Piet Saarburg is going to retire on the proceeds of measuring F16s at Zandvoort, perhaps?

This class is run by volunteers, so rather than sitting around making up conspiracy theories about those people who are actually doing real work to get the class up and running, why not give them a hand and help out.

Yep, that's right! Just like the reason Hobie bring out minor refinements to the Tiger each year is because all the previous ones are crap.

Actually, it could be that VWM have now sold a decent number of Blades and have seen them sailed around the world in a wide range of conditions for several years and as a result the design has been refined and improved. I assume that the Dynautic Blades are perfect from the outset, and that there will never be any room for improvement.

No, somewhat more anonymous than the rest of the forum. Everyone else on this forum is open about their interests in particular boats. What exactly is your relationship to Dynautic?

< Some Differences between Vectorworks and Dynautic Blades.
Vinylester vs Epoxy, Glass vs Carbon, Round keel vs flat keel etc. >

What about price?
My guess for the Vectorworks Blade is EUR 13.000 (VAT included).
With all that carbon and the very expensive Shake Design carbon foils my estimate for the Dynautic Blade is EUR 16.000.
Does anyone know the right figures?
A wise price to performance ratio plays an important role in any boat choice.
I do not think that more carbon (on a relatively heavy boat such as the F16) should represent a seizable "quantum leap forward" in bootspeed
