I was looking at the 16 foot skiff class rules a while back and they had build tollerences for the hull but you were banned from designing a hull within those tollerences which might be faster than current hulls.

All changes from current designs must be pre aproved and any changes that might make the boat go faster are banned. all seemed a bit heavy handed to me.

If it doesn't break it's too heavy; if it does it wasn't built right

Yes but y I think boats belongs to the club and are using many masts and sails.

If they need to upgrade every year it can be very expensive. It was the same when 18 footers were belonging to the australian league

There are very few rules in twelves the following are not allowed to be changed other than this ANYTHING goes

Length 12ft, Width 6ft, Minium weight 45kgs sail Area UNLIMITED NO RULES if you what bigger you can have it. Big rigs are between 26 and 31 ft mesured from the keel and big spiniker pole are 11 to 14 ft from the bow. Now you may be able to see why we sail like we do.

Self draining boats are legal, however it is faster to stay upright, and are slower than non false floored boats.

Check out the twelve site www.skiff.org.au there are links with pic vids and Our entire rules on the site

The reason that we sail 12's like that is because they are prone to nose diving becuase of the amount of sail area that we carry.   See.
