Am I the only one who thinks a forum on "Dinghy Development" isn't the place for discussions on what logo to put on your spinnaker? "What design" sounds like it might have something to do with sailing, but apparently not. Please take this kind of thing to "Banter" where it belongs.

sorry i was under the impression that spinnikers is something to do with "sailing" please keep your unfriendly comments to the "banter" section "where it belongs". i dont mean to be nasty if it sounds like i am im sorry but it is to do with the development of a spinniker

 Big man wants the help of other sailors which is why he posted it on sailing forum so surely it doesnt really matter what topic he puts it under!!!

Big Man is right it is dinghy development, but Stefan has a point - it would be good if we were careful about where we put our posts, some of the sections are getting a bit mixed up.  If we could be more thoughtful those of us who don't have much time could find the topics they are most interested in.  Can we keep Dinghy Development for technical aspect of boat design?

I have a few of points to make (surprise, surprise). The forum isn't just about exchanging hard information (how dull would that be?) it's about being part of a community and I'd like to think of you guys as friends.

1. If you don't want to read about someone's spinni designs, don't. How hard is it to ignore threads that you're not interested in? I mean I'm not in the least bit interested in Cats so I don't read threads related to them (in general).

2. If a thread starts to go off-topic and you're not interested in it stop reading it... but we should at least try to keep it on topic.

3. However this IS a sailing forum and we should probably keep it sailing based... this obviously has nothing to do with me being English

A good win for the Welsh i must admit but after the celebrations the welsh ppl wake up the next morning, and unfortunately theyre still Welsh .

I was one of the only brits in a bustling french bar for one particual sporting occasion this week- at 17-6 i thought i was safe to start the taunts

Don't you just point your monitor at the kite and then press the "Print Screen" button...

lol well i alraeday tried it and when i went to print out the design was nowhere near the size i wanted it

Posted By: ioanlavery
Date Posted: 22 Mar 05 at 10:12am
you'll have to ask the printers what size they need the artwork to be at ... then perhaps I could send you over the artwork ... that is of course if you decide to go for any of the above designs !!!

we hope to have both eventually but we need to find out prices for screen printing first. Hope we'll have the jezabelle one in time for the nationals, and the other one before that.
