Re: Spinaker or Genaker - which do you prefer?

The most workable solution on a low budget.......

Re: New Site - Sailcraftdata

The hosting service proved to be very helpful. Normally they don't like to get involved in these disputes but, in this case, it was just so obvious.
I can only guess, but they may have just...

Re: New Site - Sailcraftdata

Found the identity of the person. (programmer living in Canada.)
Still hoping he will back away from this on his own. Fighting this kind of stuff is about the most demoralizing activity I know.

Complaining is OK.
Even better would be suggestions for improvement.

This is an outright lie, and anyone who spends more than a minute comparing your site with sailboatdata.com will recognize that fact.

The site certainly has flaws. (besides cosmetic and interface issues which are both admittedly terrible.)
Criticism has also been made, for example...

Re: 220 buccaneer

But wait. This is the Buccaneer 220 your talking about?
Pretty sure the Buccaneer 220 is a Gary Mull design. Nothing to do with a Columbia 23.

Re: 34'Bene vs Columbia 9.6 meter...who's gonna win ??

These boats were actually sold as the FIRST 345 (in US and Europe)
The earlier FIRST 35 (based on a 3/4 ton design) was also advertised as the BENETEAU R/C 35. (most of the ones shipped to the US...

Re: Joshua Slocum

'The Voyage of the Libertade' is another gem.
Allegedly the original Libertade somehow made it's way to the Smithsonian Museum, but then was subsequently lost.

Obviously not the government, but it also doesn't seem likely that this is their own little spoof. In any case, it will be a topic for discussion, once they are back up and running again.

Re: Ana Capri or Anacapri?

Could elaborate on this. Obviously this boat wasn't built in great numbers with mysterious origins. If you could shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Seafarer 37

Your right. I don't think that many were built. It was introduced just before Seafarer went out of business.

Re: Cortez 16

Just curious..
Was wondering how you got that number (106).

I spoke to one of the original partners in the company a while back and he couldn't remember.

Thanks.

Re: RC 44 Series

The difference is, the AC boats would have never raced in that much wind.
