Many thanks to Chris H and others for all the information on the Worlds. Days' happenings and results have been required viewing every evening. Good results table from Richmond YC.

Congratulations to Alistair on another Bronze medal: two places better next time?

Peter

Do we really have to wait another three years before we can do this again? I don't know if I can wait that long.

Best,
Willy

I agree, 2 years seems much more reasonable and also allows us to get around all the countries who want to host it more quickly.

I've loaded up about 300 photos from our host David Thompson who took some great shots from his spectator boat on the two day events, onto the UK IC website Gallery at http://www.intcanoe.org.uk/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=54

The photos are in order and show a pattern of how the races went on the two race days for races 4&5 and 7&8.

I have the full size images if any one wants a copy for themselves to get framed or whatever.....

Come on folks. Its rather dispiriting to get the impression no-one cares about getting the information on the website. And it makes it a lot easer for people thinking about the class if they can see what designs are up there. I've filled in a few I have data for, but its not unreasonable to ask for some input from the rest of you.

The obvious ones are
GBR 329 - Morrison 2, C12 Performance Boats
USA 204 - Nethercott
USA 209 - Nethercott
GBR 330 - Morrison 2, C12 Performance Boats
AUS 10 - Nethercott
GBR 327 - Morrison 2 (sunken foredeck), C12 Performance Boats
GER 74 - Nethercott

You probably need a response from Chris Maas and Steve Clark to attribute specific designs to the newer US boats; and Arne for the German ones.

Yes, thanks everyone for your contributions, I'm pretty much there. Missing a few boat names, quite a few more builders, but nearly all the designs are there. I imagine USA211 is a Nethercott, I suppose I should check photos!

Are the US built Superstring Theories officially Maas Boat Co. built or what?

Not to nit pick:
USA 249 is "Log Theory Mk 1"
And USA 250 is "Log Theory Mk 2"

Story goes like this:
After 2007 I thought, "I bet you can build Chris' String Theory" design or something very close to it using Phil Stevenson's "Hollow Log" tortured ply technique."
What followed was a request for Chris' table of offsets and some messing around with 1/4 scale models.
These all had names that were variations on "String" "Theory" "Hollow" and "Log"
To wit "Log Theory" "Second String" and "Hollow Threat"
Bill Beaver was going to tow them all in the small tank at the Naval Academy and tell me what the differences were. He also had a 1/4 scale model of "Lust Puppet" and a 1/4 scale model of John Kells' "Mayhem." Earlier he had towed the full scale "Lust Puppet" so we had a pretty good idea how indicative the small scale tests would be.
Ger 78 is a "Second String" design I built before the results were in.
Long story short, the full test wasn't run, but the model that looked most like Chris's hull won, and than encouraged me to build two full size boats for Dave and I to sail in Germany. My abilities to build symmetrical boats out of tortured plywood isn't very good, so there were 4 different 1/2 boats represented by those two hulls. The unusual bow of USA 250 is because the plywood exploded half way through building the bow, and that's, what came out after we fixed it...I can design on the fly, full size.
Following Dave's performance in Germany, and Willy's comments after the NY Cup, we decided to figure out what we had done, really, so we took the shapes off 249 and 250 and lofted them. Roger also expressed some interest in a low material cost construction system. I was pretty sure the tortured ply system was too approximate to satisfy the German spirit, so I thought I had to do something to make the build more predictable.

We lofted each side of 249 and 250 as symmetrical boats, and then drew a hull that was the average of the two sides. Then we made some changes that we thought would improve everything. What came out I called "Gaijin." I designed a fairly elaborate building jig into which the cut sheets are deformed, so that the hulls are actually the right shape. This also is the form for doing all the bulkheads and decking, but it's a pretty big piece of CNC cutting and we figure too much of an investment for an individual or a club thinking of building a boat or two. And no one seemed very interested anyway. Arne designed his own hull and built a mold.

Dave went well this summer in the plywood boat he built out of the jig, but we figure we should build a mold to pull composite hulls of that design. I'm going to make a few really minor changes to the sheer line and stem profile. Dave and I also designed a real kit project that he has been prototyping and documenting this winter. This multi-chine hull doesn't require a building jig, and has continued down the path of simplification. He expects to get it wet very soon.

This is quite a long post.
Thanks for listening.

I haven't been on here for some time.

My Boat AUS40 Acrobat is essentially my design however it originates from the table of offsets from Chris Maas of String Theroy, from there I threw my ideas and thoughts in the mix.... It's clearly different to all others dreadnaught bow the most striking difference. I transferred the rig from AUS20 (boat I sailed at the 2008 Worlds)

I've never had a name for my designs so here we go "40" is now the official name of the design..

Cheers
H.
