Over the past month I have spent some 150 hours sailing—moving south for the winter. This has given me plenty of time to rethink some elements of the QUIDNON design, and to introduce a few improvements. While some are purely products of reflection, others resulted from direct experience with a sailboat design which I found to be inadequate. Here, I will explain the changes in prose. I will come up with updated drawings as time allows.
I very much appreciate you sharing your sailing experiences and insights. This was well worth reading.
Thank you! ...and excellent timing. I am about to reconstruct a cockpit having cut out a rotten one. I will take your suggestions seriously and do some mock-ups for comfort tests before I proceed.
Hello Club Orlov Comrades!
This is a very quick 3D sketch that we made of "The Quid".
The cool thing about it is that the open source software that generated it is Russian. :)
The modeling is imperfect but maybe it helps you to imagine a party inside of it, full of intelligent people, sailing far away: exploring the world and human's diversity.
However, you need a hardware that supports WebGL to see it ;)
All the best!
