Thanks for the link. Looks like some language was cleaned up. Considering the unfortunate history these kinds of threads have, I hope ratings rules can be discussed in a environment free of tinfoil hats and agenda pushers here.

You should rename the thread "IRC cheerleader". Merry Christmas, Shifey.

Dissenting opinions are welcome. Liars who delete their posts and edit the rest to twist reality and push an agenda of pure fantasy aren't.

You may find it difficult to fit in here, Jim.

Call me a liar to my face and I'll drop your scrawny ass.

Nice. Not only did you edit the contents of your post, you are now, again, threatening me with physical violence.

And yes, Jim, posting your erroneous delusions and stating them as fact is lying. So, you are in fact a liar. As I've stated before, I have no problem telling you what I think of you in person. History has shown you to be a bit less brazen in person, so I'd can the threats. They make you look even more mentally disturbed than you already are.

Save everything that you have to say to me until we meet again.

How do you get to BYC now that your ride moved to Wisconsin? Erroneous delusions get you in trouble, must be a tasty drink. Save everything that you have to say to me until we meet again.

I've made it crystal clear what I think of you and your bullshit. As long as you continue this kind of behavior that won't change. If you want to continue to push the threat of physical violence I will bring this to the attention of DRYA and I will ask to have you banned from BYC. Is this clear? Stop before things get serious and you have to deal with some serious repercussions. You're a grown man. Act like it.

Seriously, Jim??? Threats of physical violence on a public message board? You might want to rethink this one.

Bob,

If I walked up to you and called you a liar to your face, I would hope that it was a left cross, easier to duck that one. Good luck with your winter changes.

If someone walked up to me and called me a liar, I'd laugh right back at them and walk away. A left hook might have been an answer when I was 25, but life is too short for that kind of bullshit.

The person and the tone makes the difference.

Apparently the time out issued to Polaris on 10/13 wasn't nearly long enough.

Come on, boys. Let's talk IRC. I see that one of you has a J92? Is that right?

BobJ
12-22-2010, 08:22 PM
Kind of obvious, isn't it?

I'll pass - I've heard quite enough from you here and over in J/Anarchy. Your boat name fits you quite well.

Polaris

Bob,

The J97 is a better IRC boat. We're renaming our boat after Shife, "Erroneous Delusions". Look for us next year.

So I've got an IOR boat that rates 30.55 feet, a 3 mile course that took 27 minutes 17 seconds to sail around. What is my corrected time (how do I figure it out)? and what kind of boat is it?

You should learn when you've been beaten.

Take your trolling back to SA.

A self professed expert eh ?

What type of boat do you race ?

Polaris

Happy Holidays, Christian. Following the Sydney Hobart race today. I'll bet you any money that an IRC boat wins the race. :)

No help on the IOR?

BobJ

I assumed that was a test for Polaris.

Can't help much but is it the One Ton "Absolutely"? (If so, PHRF is 72, right? For comparison, did anyone ever get an IOR rating for a J/35 or Express 37?)

Once you have the rated length, is IOR TOT or TOD?

Ballard Sailor
12-26-2010, 10:32 AM
honestly I don't know, when I got into the bigger measured boats everything was switching to IMS....

BobJ

Sounds like it's TOD. From Wikipedia:

"The IOR concentrated on hull shape with length, beam, freeboard and girth measurements, foretriangle, mast and boom measurements, and stability with an inclination test. Additionally, the IOR identified features which were dangerous, or it couldn't fairly rate, and penalized or prohibited them. The measurements and penalties were used to compute the handicap number, called an IOR length, in feet. A typical IOR 40 footer (a one tonner) rated 30.55 feet.

In a handicapped race, the IOR length was used to compute a time allowance, in seconds per nautical mile (s/M) which was multiplied by the distance of the race, and subtracted from the boat's actual time, to compute the boat's corrected time. Longer IOR length gave a smaller time allowance."

If I have the right boat, from your earlier post it appears Absolutely is a "typical IOR 40 footer."
