    Peter jag tror det är precis den båten.

    Vad jag vet så är detta samma båt med annan mast.
    F ö en sanslöst ful båt; halvsmal och raka höga fribord.

    Pelle, den var före sin tid med raka fribord :)

    Ja, det er samme båten, men med annen mast.

    Antagligen för att kunna mäta in den…

    Lite samma som att Ericsson 3 behöver en ny köl för att mäta in. Eller Frank Pongs TP 52 behöver ett nytt häckstag för att mäta in.

    Crazy Juan K behöver lite hjälp när han skall läsa regler :)

    Ganska amatörmässigt av hela Ericsson att komma till start utan ha sina mätbrev i skick. Voi HU HU säger jag

    Stemmer. Det var vel egentlig snakk om et hull i IMS som kunne utnyttes, men som ble så åpenbart utnyttet av denne båten at det ble tettet.

    Mener å huske at baugen også er bygd om fra å ha vært “positiv”?

    Hentet fra Letters to Scuttlebut

    From William F. Cook: I have a different recollection of the events surrounding (the Juan Kouyoumdjian-designed) Krazy Kyote 2 than does Matt Manlove (Scuttlebutt #1644). The rating rule was not changed at the last minute to keep Krazy Kyote 2 from competing. Quite to the contrary, she was allowed to compete despite a clearly illegal mast (it was made in part from illegal aramid fibers). My recollection is that the team withdrew after it was decided by the measurers that the boat should not get windage credits for shrouds and spreaders that it did not actually have (how unfair!).

    While the press did its level best to present a sympathetic view of KK2’s plight, I recall thinking that chief measurer Sironi was quite unfairly treated in the pages of certain sailing publications.

    For the 2000 rule (well after the Admiral’s Cup), the residuary resistance formula in the IMS was changed so that boats with extremely high prismatic coefficients were no longer so favorably treated. This was done primarily by removing several high-Cp Delft models from the regression – models which were developed mathematically but which were not the sort of thing a Naval Architect would actually draw, and which caused the VPP to predict higher drag for these boats than was realistic. The change halted the trend towards ‘bumped’ boats, of which Krazy Kyote 2 was one example.

    Smaken är som baken… Jag tycker nog halvsmal och raka (viss mån höga) fribord annars är rätt kaxiga attribut.
