We have a protest system within the rules. Use it.

This (trial by internet) simply isn't on.

Totally agree .... 'put up or shut up' imo .....

Thread may have been started with a nudge and a wink but, majority of posts have been very positive and supportive of National 18 class and said crew. 
Having re-read entire thread again, I do not feel that thread should either be locked or removed. 
If I was one of said crew I would feel encouraged by sensible well thought out replies.

I don't disagree with the sentiment, but I still feel its wrong that someone thinks that they can try to drag the reputation of a few very easy to identify people through the mud whilst hiding behind a keyboard. Free speech is one thing, running through a set of "hypothetical" happenings is ok too but the original post went too far all but naming those involved knowing full well the potential consequences and the trouble it could cause. 

I don't think the thread should be locked either, personally I think its a rule 2/69 case - how you bring it I'm not really sure. But something should be done to stop it happening.

Rather than have a "report this post" or similar, I think their are enough eloquent knowledgable posters on here to be able to "self police", rather than condemn individual posters, better to engage in debate.

A boat has to comply to rule 78.
Depends what the class rule says and if it does pass measurement.
As always a discussion with RC would have sorted it out.

Personally I really like the look of the boat. Better to see it sailing rather than waiting for a man with a tape measure. Wish I had the means to get one.

Looking at the series I suspect both laser and national 18 will be hit on py on the GL system.

Agreed; very shabby throwing insinuations around like this ...
