    I took my boys out to Kurnell yesterday to see the Wotrocket speed sailer that was there for some testing, its worthwhile to google up or see on sailing anarchy thread for 50+ knot attempt, unfortunately we got there late for the action but am gunna stay tuned to that cause I reckon they've got a red hot go to get a record. All the best & check it out from Jeff.:cool:

    Masalai, I'm not sure how to post a "link", maybe I'm The missing link as theres plenty of tools in these computer machines & dont know how to use yet, I'm quite handy with an adze, drawknife, 4.5" spokeshave etc but still learning compu stuff.
    Thanks for posting the link Meanz, there's some shots from Sailing Anarchy Forum from yesterday on " 50 knot barrier" thread that detail the foils & breakage etc. All the best from Jeff.

    Heinz has done it by the looks, else open another tab with that site and copy the "www......" address using copy, then paste into the open thread (this one) by clicking on the tab to post after your comments and the system will automatically make it into a "link", or write the link on a scrap and type it into your post with a <space> before and after - the link will be automatically created when you click the button "post a quick reply".... Test the link, and if it works, all is well if not you probably have a spelling or similar error that must be fixed.... OK? for next time... Good luck.

    Reading, listening, reading... depressing. Saudis meeting soon to review oil production.... internal push to actively start husbanding resources and CUTTING production, in the hands of the politics of the House of Saud there. Oil was lock limit up... i.e. they halted higher trade, she bounced off the curbs.... 160/70 oil here we come, rapidly slipping into crisis a bit sooner than expected. There is some lying going on somewhere here!

    Waiter... Shiraz, old and bold thanks :D Night all!

    P.S. It ain't all about Israeal yapping either, nothing new in that lot--- UD fell out of bed, this is more deeply rooted than a reaction to a sound byte.

    Sorry Jeff off topic.... back to the dungeon.

    Nite Heinz, I am as sorted as I can be at the moment so I will join you in a tipple - got some very nice local (Maroochy springs wines) boutique wines at the Eumundi markets where we had lunch... Ready for the "entertaining ride" as that is all that is left to do?
