Title: Proposals
Post by: Bob Gray on October 04, 2021, 03:46:30 PM
The three new proposals are interesting. I think number three, hull number removal is great and about time.
Number two makes sense as long as existing sails are legal and donít have to be retrofitted. I am totally against number two, the tiller release requirement. If you want one great, go for it but donít require it. There canít be too many sources for them and theyíd probably be expensive. The other thing is whatís the standard, at what force must they release and who is going to check them and how would you know the new toy you just bought is setup correctly. How about shear bolts, would they be okay? Too vague and too expensive.

One more thing concerning proposal two, iceboaters are not a particularly litigious group however who ever builds these tiller heads had better have some really good liability insurance since they are going to have to be marketed as a safety device.
