Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Confusing nothing. Whatever part of the pipeline someone has worked in, the point isn’t who’s extruding, weaving, gluing or sewing. We all know different people make the glue, film, fiber etc. none of that is sailcoth until its finished, coated laminated or whatever other process applies to a produc...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Calm down james. I shared some facts. Ullman have factories that assemble laminate cloths. They do make fabrics of the type discussed. So do others.

If on port you have to yield to avoid those on starboard. 4. In surf be extra nice and don’t get in the w...

Re: Hydrofin? Any insights on this?

Actually it’s been said many times, hydrofoils at 15+ knots are more similar to airplane wings operating near or above the speed of sound, than they are to airplane wings that operate at low speed.
