    I can, but it's annoying when Doug keeps posting the same, years–old pictures and theories in every thread he can find.

    I have no problem with him using a single post with a summary of his ideas and link to his thread when appropriate. But continually re–posting the same material on multiple threads is a senseless waste of bandwidth and insult to the intelligence of others who have the capacity to follow links and make up their own minds about what he's posted. It's also contrary to the most basic and long established rules of netiquette.

    There is an interesting thread on Sailing Anarchy about a Weta trimaran with C foils.

    You don't know what you're talking about: the pictures of my two different models -one a working test model ,the other a concept model were posted to answer questions about and illustrate specific design concepts relevant to this thread as they do in other threads as required by the subject matter. And they illustrate the concept I was talking about better than any words could do since there is no other boat anywhere utilizing the concept that was being illustrated.
    There is a thread right here in "multihulls" that discusses the Weta with C foils as well. http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/multihulls/weta-trimaran-sailing-worlds-best-dinghy-30819-3.html

    Ever occurred to you Doug that it is YOU who doesn't know what you're talking about?
    No, of course not, because you're completely self deluded regarding your own over-inflated importance.
    Also you're like some polluting plague of silly slime with your invasion of other peoples' communication.
    Fill your own ridiculous posts with your imbalanced rubbish, I have no problem with that ... but leave the rest of us alone.
    Spelling it out slowly to you, g o a w a y.

    Here you are Corley, from Wilson and Press. It is a little difficult to see the plank between the helm's legs but it is there; also his hiking position is more sitting than on trapeze, so that is revealing too.
