Still waiting to hear what has happened with the 20ft and under rule. The 2019 R2AK is over and exactly one boat finished that met this rule, the last boat to finish, team Solveig. In reading the bio for Team Yankee Peddlers it is apparent that the race organizers were aware that their Santana 20 wa...

Has the rule changed? Or has there been a mistake in naming Yankee Peddlers the winner of the side bet? The Santana 20 that they used does not meet the 20ft and under rule as described here - unless they have modified it to be a few inches shorter.

That depiction of LOA does not match my understanding of it, nor the marinas which use overall length to determine how much you pay. I have always understood LOA to include permanent parts of the boat including bowsprits and bumpkins. LH (length of hull) is what I think should be the standard, and i...

We've been accepted into the race - still have to pay the big entry fee. We had planned to build our own oars, sliding seat system and rudder but we are getting real short on time. If anyone has some 9ft+ oars/sweeps, sliding seat parts or rudder it would save us the time in building them - which wo...

Just a few days ago I spoke to Josh about this as I also had the same question. The answer I got was "Length on deck". The same answer I received from the race boss. Length on deck, as I understand it, is the overall length of the hull not counting bits that stick out. Also, a reversed tra...

The "Pedal Powered Boats" thread on the BoatDesign.net forum has a very long discussion about pedal drives. What I found interesting was that a spring steel shaft with a prop on the end will self stabilize. No need for a strut to hold it in place. If it hits an obstruction it will just &qu...
