Displacement-Length Ratio of a Yacht: Skipper's Basics – no-frills-sailing.com

http://no-frills-sailing.com/displacement-length-ratio-sailing-yacht-dl-r-ratio/

Saved by uncleflo on February 24th, 2019.

When sailors are talking about their boats they often refer to ratios and numbers. That´s a tendency in human behaviour to try to generalize things to make them comparable. Of course, everybody knows that you cannot really describe apple to pears and so it´s worthless to describe a let´s say Seventies IOR-era King´s Cruiser 33 like mine to a modern day cruising yacht but we nevertheless tend to do so. The Displacement-Length-Ratio in general is a non-dimensional number. It sets into relation the displacement of a boat (expressed in pounds) to the length of her waterline (in feet). So, in general, this ratio is looking for the relation between the (heavy?) volume of water being pushed aside by a boat´s hull and the length (and therefore speed potential see for my article Hull speed vs. Froude number here) of her hull. Sounds fair enough?

Lionheart | Claasen Shipyards

http://claasenshipyards.com/yacht/lionheart/

Saved by uncleflo on February 23rd, 2019.

Lionheart is designed for cruising as well as racing, and is therefore built to MCA. No expense has been spared to ensure that she is competitive on the race course, and her performance has been optimised by a design that incorporates research done on previous J-class yachts.  Lionheart’s hull is built in high tensile Alustar plating and extrusion materials, and she employs longitudinal stringers to ensure maximum stiffness. Tremendous 17-metre overhangs lend Lionheart a striking appearance. She features two deckhouses and two cockpits, with one of each reserved for the owner, and the owners’ cockpit linked to their suite for maximum privacy.

Saved by uncleflo on February 23rd, 2019.

A well-designed sailing yacht is a thing of pure beauty, here are just 10 of the world’s finest… in my eyes at least! Velsheda
When she was launched in 1933, the J-Class yacht Velsheda represented the cutting edge of technology and sophistication and won races against all the great yachts of her day. However, she only was only used for three seasons and after World War 2 it looked as though none of these great yachts would ever sail again. King George V’s Britannia had already been scuttled south of the Isle of Wight, and Velsheda became a houseboat, firmly embedded into the River Hamble Mud for almost 50 years. In the 1970s she was saved from being cut up for scrap after being bought by a group of enthusiasts led by Bembridge bank manager Royce Pook. She then became the first of the class to be restored – in near original specification – thanks to Yorkshire scrap metal merchant Terry Brabant who bought her in 1984. Further refits after Brabant’s ownership saw her refurbished into the spectacular luxury yacht we see today.

The J Class Association

https://www.jclassyachts.com/class

Saved by uncleflo on February 23rd, 2019.

The J Class Association (JCA) was founded to protect the interests of the Class, present and future. To keep the J-Class fleet and races alive and to encourage new build yachts to enter the field, new Class rules were established for the construction of Replica Rebuilds from original plans. One of the key drivers of the J-Class revival was the decision of the J-Class Association to allow aluminium and other materials to be used as a hull construction material. This reinforced the renewed interest among owners to build J-class yachts. After a performance analysis by Gerard Dijkstra of the existing J's as well as the designs that were allowed to be built under the new JCA rules, a specific J Class handicap system was developed in order to enable all yachts built to the J Class designs to race against each other regardless of size, sail area or hull construction.

What You Need to Know About Watermakers - Sail Magazine

https://www.sailmagazine.com/diy/need-know-watermakers

Saved by uncleflo on January 4th, 2019.

With a watermaker aboard, the days of rationing freshwater can come to an end! Photo by Discovery Yachts Water may be essential to life, but it can also be a pain aboard a sailboat. For one thing, it weighs a tremendous amount, and tankage can take up a good deal of space, especially aboard a smaller cruising boat. Water tanks can also be a pain to top off, especially in a remote foreign port. Not only do you often have to pay for the stuff, but there is the fear of its containing both organic and inorganic contaminants. Fortunately, in recent years sailors have been able to enjoy the benefits of modern watermakers that in many ways do for water stowage what GPS did to navigation: make a whole world of problems go away with the push of a button. That said, like GPS, watermaker technology is not entirely a no-brainer. In addition to taking care of your system—running and rinsing it regularly, pickling it with biocides if you can’t, and changing the filters regularly according to the manufacturer’s recommendations—it’s important to recognize that despite their similarities, there are also some basic differences between the many models on the market that have important implications in terms of how they are operated.

Living on a houseboat in London

https://www.homesandproperty.co.uk/property-news/living-on-a-houseboat-in-london-demand-for-floating-homes-in-the-capital-soars-as-house-prices-a109461.html

Saved by uncleflo on December 20th, 2018.

Living on a houseboat in London: living on the water is no longer an alternative lifestyle choice as Londoners look to rivers and canals for better value homes. Londoners looking for a central home on a budget are hitting the water — and avoiding stamp duty in the process. The number of Londoners resorting to living on boats has rocketed — with many driven off dry land by the high price of conventional homes. The number of boats registered to be moored on London waterways has increased by nearly 60 per cent in the past five years to almost 4,000, according to latest figures from the Canal & River Trust, which manages 100 miles of canals in the capital including the Grand Union and Regent’s Canals. Many other floating households are in private marinas or at moorings along the Thames.

You are welcome to join one of the courses advertised on our website. Alternatively, we would be delighted to come to your office and run a sailing course for yourself and your colleagues. There may be a certain charm to such convenience. In London we run Day Skipper, Yachtmaster and Ocean Yachtmaster navigation classes as well as the RYA 1 day courses in various locations. We usually have something running within the City, Canary Wharf, Holborn and Limehouse but we will and do run courses anywhere in London. Shorebased sailing courses are extremely popular within the Capital. We have a base in Limehouse at the Cruising Association from where we run the full range of RYA shorebased courses but we also specialise in going into the offices of companies all over London, from Canary Wharf to Brentford, and running evening classes for employees of those companies and their family and friends. ‘Outsiders’ to these companies (ie non employees) are also often allowed to attend.

Designing the MJM 50z

https://www.powerandmotoryacht.com/boats/designing-mjm-50z

Saved by uncleflo on September 14th, 2018.

Modern construction, smart design, and practical engineering keep the new MJM 50z at the top of her game, and ready to make her owners very happy. Commercially driven industrial design often breeds a certain level of ennui, because the results frequently look remarkably similar. We can’t blame the designers or the manufacturers. They merely have responded to the public’s whims and fancies, which can make or break any new product. The MJM 50z, on the other hand, has a distinctive personality, derived in equal measure from CEO Bob Johnstone’s knowledge of which features mean the most to the owners—ease of use, comfort, and pride of ownership—and Doug Zurn’s artful rendering of those features.
