Here Mercedes Benz make some basic mistakes with self promotion disguised as "research".

Not to mention that air has 0.00133 the density of water and the fish has a similar density to water while the car vastly outweighs the air it is influencing.

Finally ... looking at the tapering nose of the fish ... does the car actually have much resemblance to the fish at all?

Maybe some spots, Mercedes?
In the mid-1990s, Mercedes-Benz wanted to design a car. But not just any car, and through not just any design approach. Mercedes-Benz sought to design a vehicle that was at once aerodynamic, safe, efficient, and maneuverable, and to achieve all of these goals while drawing from a single, overarching theme, Mercedes-Benz turned its gaze to...

But Mik, how else can they justify that the car you had last year is dated and should be upgraded?  It would be a bit crass for them just to be reduced to saying, "Give us your money because we say so!"

A good rundown on how rising costs made the 18ft skiffs into a more or less one design class from 1987.

Some great footage!

Chines vs Round bilge - Is there evidence of superiority?

Traditionally we were all told that chines were draggy, induced vortices and were slow. But in restricted dinghy classes where different hull designs are allowed chines predominate. And now chines are appearing on yachts as well. Sailors seem to be voting…

Stayed here two nights while I went to the Mystic Seaport museum. Was a trouble free stay, Room was fine, staff were fine. Was about a 2 mile walk to the museum which was nice. I recommend it for a no worries stay.

This is my favourite place in Adelaide ... and by the number of familiar faces among the customers ... it is for lots of other people too. Also it is one of the place I bring non vegetarian friends ... a lot of them never realise it is vegetarian .. it breaks the "rule" that vego food is boring. There is a good selection of Vegan and Vego meals, delicious bubble tea. They also sell tea pots and cups and sometimes artwork. Cool place to hang on a long afternoon. Open weekdays and open friday evening as well
