Hi Jeff So if anyone out there has the explanations would they mind posting them?.

Hi Lester I agree that a change in the list of candidates for Exec positions is within the regulations post agenda, however I’m still of the opinion that a change to an agenda resolution isn’t. It’s therefore important to word the resolution to appoint the incoming Exec in such a way as to all...

If the proposals are withdrawn from the already set agenda and substituted with the emergency procedure would that then have them dealt with at virtually the same time anyway or would that be put over until the next Executive meeting? The Exec can put an emergency rule change in place pretty much a...

Hi Barry, it should have become executive procedure to never accept anything that isn't handled one item at a time. I can think of occasions when bundling several rule changes into one vote makes sense, the changes to comply with the new ERS springs immediately to mind. That said, in light of this c...

Hi Roy, From my understanding of the present state of the rules, fairing compounds (such as bondo) used for fairing or for minor repairs would be legal. However, building an entire boat out of bondo (if such a thing could be done) would probably not be legal I was under the impression that a hull ma...

I agree with Roy, in that it’s probably not the best way to reshape a hull. I don't think the interpretation clearly addresses the use of a big chunk of Bondo If that’s the case then it would follow that any use of Bondo (or any car body filler product) is similarly unclear. Roy, is it your opin...

Hi Søren One could argue that filler falls in under one of the listed materials (f.ex. adhesive or paint) But am I right?? I suspect you are. I regularly use Plastic Padding and similar fillers as adhesives, and they sure are sticky! I think epoxy with a bulking agent will be ok too, assuming the b...

Hi John, But then some wordsmith may argue the word "item" is still singular and a DX7 has 'two' boxes. Indeed, we will need to get the wording correct. a technical interpretation that accepts that the DX6/7 are functionally one receiver for the purpose of the rule. The problem is that we have no gu...

Hi John The DX6 and DX7 both meet my tests for a ‘single receiver’ as intended in the rule. That’s a good point. They meet your tests, but not those of others. Perhaps an alternative solution would be to specifically define a receiver, in the context of RC, within the Class Rules. Something li...

Hi Barry,
What measurement form are you using?
I believe Henry is refereeing to the Boat Measurement Form used for initial certification. Question 17 is the one: “Does the remote control equipment conform to class rule D.2.4?â€
