JimThere is no secrets here. This is not private correspondence. On this thread Roy started with: "Nevertheless, Robert Grubisa, proclaimed head of RSD's technical committee, has been sent the 2008 rules changes and he has accepted some but most importantly he has rejected others and wants them to b...

I will try to explain once again why it is useless to initial measure: - weight of the boat, - weight of the keel, - length of the boat, - depth of the hull and - draught of the boat. All of mentioned dimensions are subject to the way in which the skipper will assembly the boat. What is the purpose ...

Roy and Andy It seems that link in Andy's message is not valid. The discussion between Exec members is not my problem. Anyhow, as an IOM skipper I am interested to know when the 2008 IOM CR changes will be valid. As you know, the mast diameter has been changed and there are some people who want to u...

However, as I have said numerous times, I believe in democracy and doing what works best for the class. So the simply question is, do people think that we need to clarify the rules about what should and should not be done at the time of initial measurement of our boats.[/i] Roy, let me know why we ...

Roy, I think that it is more than clear why measurements depending on final boat assembly are excluded from fundamental measurement: Quote Excluding from fundamental measurement what appear to be the major limiting factors (length, draught and weight) in order to get a certificate may seem a little ...

This is the intention of the IOM CR from the original RSD document from 2002: "Because the rules do not require the weight and position of hull corrector weights to be measured and recorded on the certificate, (they do have to be securely fixed during an event – see ERS B.10.1), there is no real n...

Since the deck is an integral part of the hull shell I am quite happy with the physical attachment of the jib to the bottom of the tube that, you can convincingly argue, is part of the structure of the deck. I agree with Val. In addition, note that normally the lower end of jib swivel cord is attac...

Remote control equipment is listed in IOM Class Rule D.2.4 (a). Under item (4) you will find "Battery cells assembled in one or more packs." So, on IOM boat , battery is part of remote control equipment. IOM Class Rule C.5.3 (d) is written in Part II of the IOM class rules. In the preamble of Part I...

It is not so easy to define the "deck shape" on the IOM class boats as "Development class with some One Design characteristics and with absolute limits to hull length, hull depth, displacement and draft and with One Design rigs."
