Re: Something New, & the WOOD Regatta
I suspect you'll have to define things a bit more. What are the "standard Wood Regatta classes"? And what will your new classes be for? In other words, if someone builds a boat outside the Wood Regatta class (whatever that is), I assume it needs to meet your new class requirements in order to participate?
2. Why is this needed? I understand why you want #1 to keep it mono-hull, but not sure on #2.
4. Define "wood". Is doorskin with thick fiberglass on both sides "wood"? You may need to list approved thickness/weight of various materials, as many modern boats are composites with wood, epoxy, fillers, and glass/other fabrics on the hull. Otherwise something with a total thickness of 1/2" balsa core and 1/4" of glass and gelcoat qualifies as "wood"....
5. I think you mean "dacron", right? And you may not be able to avoid the polytarp material, as it is getting very common on home-built boats.
