Arrow (Catamaran)

Arrow (Catamaran) is a 14 ′ 1 ″ / 4.3 m catamaran sailboat designed by Neil Fowler and built by Amateur or Professionally built to plans starting in 1964.

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

The ARROW is a popular catamaran class local to Australia. Originally designed for the amateur builder.

RS Sailing, the world’s largest small-sailboat manufacturer

RS AERO – PURE EXHILARATION, BEAUTIFUL SIMPLICITY

RS Aero

After years of development we believe the RS Aero is the most technically advanced boat in its sector. Which explains why it’s the most exciting and best-selling modern single-hander. And easily handled too. Astonishingly, the RS Aero weighs about the same as an Optimist. That drives everything about its incredible user friendliness through transporting, rigging and launching – before you even experience the addictive sensations afloat. Complex thinking leading to beautiful simplicity – the RS Aero ignites the pure excitement of sailing in its least complicated form. Four rig sizes enable youths, women and guys to enjoy the ride. Already an International Class  and winner of the 2019 World Sailing Equipment Trails for the 2024 Men’s and Women’s One Person Dinghy Event, the community is building fast for the most competitive sailors. It’s a phenomenon. Just do it.

WHAT THE SAILORS ARE SAYING…

A big ‘thank you’ from to all those involved in the design, development and production of this super boat; the award is well deserved. Further, the after sales support has in my experience been excellent and we have an active owners association, frankly, I don’t see how it could be much better.

Just like to say after 4 days excellent sailing, I think this boat is great…meets all my requirements, light, responsive, testing but manageable…you deserve to sell these all over the world.

Goes like stink with terrific handling!! Cheers to all at RS

When it came to selecting the RS Aero as the year’s best one-design, there was no debate. The boat is impeccable and really quick.

…I am convinced the Aero will be a huge success. I’d love to sail it much more and learn the fine detail, but overall it will be a big winner.

RS Aero

Exhilaration  

  • Ultra-light weight changes the game afloat and ashore.
  • Sail an RS Aero for the pure exhilaration
  • Lift on the roof alone or with a youngster – rig in minutes – launch with ease.

World Sailing International Class

  • Incredibly fast growing around the world – by the best-selling modern single-hander.
  • Event programmes building quickly
  • World Championships from 2017 onwards
  • One-design competition – RS community etho
  • Testing shows that 4m length is long enough to support the larger helmsman, without being a handful for small sailors to launch and recover
  • 1.4m beam conveniently fits a normal roof-rack
  • A chined hull is the correct approach, giving the sailor more reserve stability
  • The chine peels off spray when sailing down wind and gives greater dynamic stability
  • The flatter hull panels of a chined hull allow construction from normal flat sheets of PU foam, reducing the weight of the core bond (cores designed to mould around tighter curves “absorb” more resin into their score cuts or honeycomb).
  • The chine sits just below the water line amidships – for several advantages:
  • A 35kg sailor gains approximately the same waterline beam and hence the same hull form stability as a heavier sailor
  • The waterline beam and wetted surface does not change significantly with an increase in helm weight
  • The RS Aero is so light there is less inertial mass to pull against when moving in during a lull or header – compensated for by the flatter hull and increased form stability from  the buoyant chine area
  • The chine has a small lip to reduce spray drag and for precise positioning of the computer cut foam panels during construction
  • Fine bow for upwind sailing, stable mid sections and a relatively wide transom.
  • Transom shape fine tuned to ensure the RS Aero planes bow up (analogous to the trim tabs on a powerboat stern).
  • Vertical bows are common in “box rule” dinghies and yachts built to rating systems. We chose a raked bow for this one-design because measured waterline length pressures don’t apply and:
  • It leads to greater flare in the forward 20% of the topsides, giving reserve buoyancy and forgiving handling in waves – it is easier and more efficient during the lamination process, leading to cost and consistency efficiencies in volume production – it makes the Aero’s valuable stacking system possible. Function over fashion.

Gunwale design

  • As the RS Aero is relatively narrow we have optimised the width with the modern approach of running the gunwale parallel to the centreline in the aft half of the boat. Advantages are:
  • Maximum righting moment wherever the helm sits out, irrespective of fore and aft position
  • When capsized the topside buoyancy is kept to a minimum – the boat floats lower allowing easier reach to the daggerboard
  • The abrupt change of deck line at the front of the cockpit allows a fine bow without pushing out the overall width or the topsides forward
  • Easier to sit alongside a RIB or the dock
  • More space to tie the mast sections alongside the boat on a roof-rack
  • The boat can be stored or transported more easily on its side
  • The hull and deck are joined with a conventional gunwale. We have used the “biscuit tin” (smooth) join for close to 10 years on the RS Elite, but chose a U section gunwale for the RS Aero because:
  • It creates an important carbon laminate “box frame” around the boat and distributes rig loads through a light, efficient structure – it makes righting the boat from inverted faster and safer – the gunwale gives a significantly drier and more pleasant ride upwind & tight reaching – it makes the boat much easier to hold when launching and recovering, especially in waves.

Flat panel deck

  • We have used, where possible, a flat panel deck to keep straight load-paths with structural corners – so minimizing weight.
  • Numerous deck profiles were tested to maximise hiking comfort whilst maintaining good “kick off” surfaces when roll tacking – and a secure feeling when sailing downwind in breeze. Styling led temptation to cut-away the deck at the transom was resisted – it is useful to sit on when bearing away in extreme conditions.
  • The mast step is located in the hull by a vertical pin during construction, ensuring mast rake and position are identical on all boats.
  • The pin is removed after manufacture to leave a mast tube drain hole.
  • There is a stainless steel wear protector at the base of the mast tube.

Stacking system

  • The RS Aero is designed to stack – the hull above sits perfectly into the deck below.
  • This allows three boats to be stacked on a conventional road trailer base with small pads between them – double and triple trailers are unnecessary.
  • Efficient stacking allows over 20 boats to be loaded into a 40’ shipping container – minimising freight cost and carbon footprint in transport to dealers or regattas.

Construction

  • Every aspect of the simple shape has been considered to minimise weight and maximise cost-efficient manufacture:
  • Flatter panels on the chined hull allow construction from normal flat sheets of PU foam, reducing the weight of the core bond
  •  “Chine” angles on the deck add form stiffness without additional weight
  • Low surface area reduces weight and material costs
  • Simple shape reduces time in the manufacturing process
  • Epoxy resin is used for its high strength and low water absorption properties.
  • Woven glass matt is used throughout the hull.
  • Carbon fibre is used in all high load areas such as the hull and deck around the mast step, the hiking region of the deck, all around the gunwales and transom.
  • Due to its ultra-light weight and the high elongation at break (shatter resistance) of the epoxy resin system, the RS Aero has proved to be remarkably durable.
  • Yet the boat is so astonishingly light it is possible to carry it up the beach single handed by holding the top of the daggerboard and the boom! Pulling the boat up the beach on a trolley makes you smile.
  • The tooling has been CNC machined to give maximum control over shape and symmetry.

Dynamic Rig System

  • From day one we assumed a requirement for multiple of differing sail areas to cater for the desired crew weight range.
  • We have developed rigs with sufficient control to totally flatten and twist the head of the sail upwind reducing the healing moment. This allows a greater sail area to be carried – a big benefit downwind and in lighter conditions.
  • Working closely with a world-leading carbon fibre tube manufacturer we have produced the four rigs using a common top-mast and boom, yet radically differing stiffness bottom sections. The differing deck-level bend and stiffness of the rigs ensure the boat is well balanced, without resorting to a permanently pre-bent lower section for the smallest sail.
  • Even with the smallest RS Aero rig the sail-area : hull-weight ratio is significantly higher than most existing hiking single-handers, due to the incredibly light weight of the RS Aero. So even the RS Aero 5 enjoys the amazingly responsive feel that makes the boat so exciting.
  • The largest rig is 5.5kg lighter than the equivalent in aluminium alloy and cutting-edge production method provides for tight stiffness and weight control.
  • The tracked mast and halyard are more practical than a sleeved luff – much easier when stepping mast in breeze and suiting full length top battens.
  • The rig is positioned well forward in the boat to provide a good distance between the mast and the centre-mainsheet to reduce sheet loads and for ease of gybing, without the risk of snagging associated with a transom led mainsheet.
  • This is the greatest area of conflict between styling pressures and the performance requirements of the RS Aero.
  • It is not possible to produce a Mylar sail that will cope with the wide range of mast bend of a responsive carbon rig, in different wind strengths and on different points of sailing. This is due to the lack of bias (diagonal) stretch of the fabric. Mylar film is stable in all directions.
  • We have, therefore, chosen a high denier Dacron sail fabric with a low filler content that offers good durability and a high level of user-friendliness.
  • The RS Aero has a vertical daggerboard for ease of use.
  • The daggerboard is glass/carbon construction from CNC milled tooling, to a modern section developed to reduce downwind drag whilst still generating enough lift upwind.
  • The unusual profile is designed to fill the daggerboard hull slot until the point where the knuckle is reached – minimising drag.
  • The tapered tip below the knuckle reduces tip losses.
  • Evidence exists that a leading edge knuckle provides greater stability of flow – it is not uncommon in birds!
  • Evolved during testing, the rudder blade’s low drag section and surface area are extremely effective.
  • The custom-designed, high grade alloy rudder stock is of minimalist size.
  • The rudder blade can be rotated to vertical whilst ashore and is well supported at all angles whilst afloat.
  • Fit-out is simple whilst providing the rig control you need and enabling the boat to be rigged in moments.
  • The centreline toe-strap is padded for comfort and adjustable to suit hiking style and sailor size.
  • Functional and beautiful custom designed carbon fibre RS Aero options include brackets for Tack Tick or Velocitek electronics, a GoPro camera mount and tiller extension.

How long will feckless Joe Biden ignore the grave threat of sharks and electric boats?

Does biden even care about patriotic americans like us, the ones who might one day be forced to choose between boat-battery electrocution or death by shark.

arrow 12 sailboat

Thank God for MY PRESIDENT, Donald J. Trump, the one presidential candidate with courage enough to confront the greatest twin threats of our time: sharks and electric boat batteries.

At a recent rally, Trump brought up the dilemma that’s keeping so many Americans who ride through shark-infested waters in battery-powered boats awake at night: “What would happen if the boat sank from its weight, and you’re in the boat and you have this tremendously powerful battery, and the battery is now underwater and there’s a shark that’s approximately 10 yards over there ?”

It’s truly every electric-boat-using parent’s worst nightmare, assuming they don’t understand how boat batteries work and don't question why the shark that’s 10 yards over there wouldn’t also be getting electrocuted.

“Do I get electrocuted if the boat is sinking, water goes over the battery, the boat is sinking?” Trump smartly asked . “Do I stay on top of the boat and get electrocuted, or do I jump over by the shark and not get electrocuted?”

Unlike Trump, Biden doesn't care if you get eaten by a shark

These are not the kind of sensible, America-loving questions you hear from Sleepy Joe Biden. Does he even care about patriotic Americans like us, the ones who might one day be forced to choose between boat-battery electrocution or death by shark?

I doubt he cares at all. He’s too busy being both dementia-addled AND the devious mastermind of a global crime family while also turning our country into a banana republic by allowing the justice system to use a "jury" to find Trump “guilty” of “crimes.”

Obviously Trump is Jesus: Marjorie Taylor Greene compares Trump to Jesus. Which Bible is she reading?

No, you won’t hear one word from Biden about sharks or large boat batteries.

He’s either too busy being totally out of it due to severe mental decline OR carefully plotting an elaborate scheme to get his son convicted on federal gun charges so people think that the justice system is legitimate and that Trump’s recent 34-count conviction on New York felony charges wasn’t actually rigged.

NICE TRY, SLEEPY JOE!

Maybe for a change you could give a damn about the American people by making sure they aren’t dying of ocean electrocution or in the razor-toothed mouths of presumably electrocution-proof sharks!

Trump will surely protect us from battery electrocution and sharks

At the same rally where Trump addressed our nation’s shark/battery crisis – a speech many are saying was as good as, if not better than, President John F. Kennedy’s 1961 inaugural address – the man who made MAGA noted : “By the way, a lot of shark attacks lately, do you notice that? A lot of sharks. I watched some guys justifying it today. ‘Well, they weren’t really that angry, they bit off the young lady’s leg because of the fact that they were not hungry but they misunderstood who she was.’ These people are crazy. He said there’s no problem with sharks they just didn’t really understand a young woman swimming now who really got decimated and a lot of other people too, a lot of shark attacks.”

Indeed. All these shark attacks , combined with what I assume are innumerable instances of battery-powered boats sinking near sharks, have created a national catastrophe Biden is choosing to ignore.

Questions abound when it comes to sinking electric-powered boats

There are so many questions. Why are the boats sinking, and why, as Trump mentioned, is there always a shark “approximately 10 yards” away?

Are these sharks working for the Democratic National Committee? Is the Biden Crime Family having communist China manufacture the boats that keep sinking under the weight of these batteries?

Hunter Biden convicted: Hunter Biden guilty verdict proves Trump's trial wasn't 'rigged'

And why does the electrical current stop mattering if the person jumps over by the shark?

Wouldn’t the boater who leaps overboard get both electrocuted AND eaten by the shark that, for some reason, is wholly unfazed by any electric current?

Another Biden term means certain death for electric-boat owners

And why have we never heard of the presumably thousands of people who are being electrocuted by boat batteries? Is this a cover-up by the fake news media?

With shark-lover Biden in office, we’ll surely never know. And unless Trump gets elected this fall, more and more Americans will have to answer the impossible question posed by the man we Republicans think should be leader of the free world: “Do I stay on top of the boat and get electrocuted, or do I jump over by the shark and not get electrocuted?”

Vote accordingly, folks. Otherwise, the sharks and the batteries win.

Fiji Navy patrol boat runs aground on maiden voyage, months after being donated by Australia

A grey navy patrol boat is aground on a reef, with its stern elevated above the water while a man stands behind it.

A Pacific patrol boat has run aground on its maiden voyage in Fiji, just a few months after it was handed over by the Australian government.

Fiji's Navy confirmed on Tuesday that the RFNS Puamau hit a reef on Fiji's remote Lau group of islands on Monday, midway through its first two-week long patrol.

No injuries have been reported but the accident is a major embarrassment for Fiji's Navy which commissioned the high-tech vessel less than a month ago after it was gifted to Fiji's Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka at a Perth ceremony in March.

Naval officers in white and wearing caps cross a gangway onto a grey navy boat.

In a statement, Fiji's Navy said its first priority was "the safety and welfare of all crew onboard and safely recovering the vessel".

"A crisis management team has been assembled to oversee the situation, with emergency support crews en route and secondary support arrangements underway in collaboration with our partners," it said.

Australia is helping with the recovery operation, with Fiji's Navy deploying another patrol boat to the stricken vessel and scrambling to pump water out of the engine room to ensure flooding is controlled.

It's not yet clear how seriously it has been damaged, but the ABC has been told that any delays in salvaging the vessel could exacerbate the damage.

A local witness told the ABC that the passage where the RFNS Puamau ran aground was known to be treacherous, and that there were strong easterly winds at the weekend.

They also said that most commercial ferries don't attempt to enter the area.

The Guardian-class patrol boats are popular with Pacific Island governments, which use the Australian-built high-tech vessels to survey their vast maritime zones and track illegal fishing.

Nineteen boats have so far been handed over to Pacific nations under the Pacific Maritime Security Program.

But the program has also been plagued by issues — with Pacific Minister Pat Conroy revealing not long after taking office that the patrol vessels had several defects including potential problems with the exhaust system.

Multiple patrol vessels have also been damaged in recent years, due to mishaps or natural disasters.

Australia handed a new Guardian-class patrol boat to Samoa late last year after the police ran aground the $30 million Nafanua II in October 2021, damaging it beyond repair.

Two other patrol boats — Tuvalu's HMTSS Te Mataili, and Vanuatu's RVS Takuare — were also badly damaged by the twin cyclones that hit Vanuatu in March last year.

Foreign Minister Penny Wong announced earlier this year that Australia would "fast track" a replacement Guardian-class Patrol Boat for Tuvalu.

A defence spokesperson told the ABC that the RVS Takuare was currently in Cairns being repaired.

"Australia remains committed to being the security partner of choice for Pacific countries," they said.

"Our view, shared by Pacific leaders, is that security in the region is best provided by the Pacific family."

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY, Calif. - Boats entering Lopez Lake this Father's Day weekend will be inspected by park rangers and specially trained dogs. They are on the lookout for invasive Quagga or Zebra mussels. They can clog infrastructure, leading to expensive repairs and maintenance.

Boaters are encouraged to inspect all exposed surfaces of their vessel and wash the boat out thoroughly.

San Luis Obispo County Water Systems Lab Tech Michael Andrews spoke live with News Channel 3-12 about how specially trained Mussel Dogs help sniff out any problems before boats can launch.

64 people missing and many rescued from 2 shipwrecks off Italy. At least 11 have died

Sixty-four people were missing at sea after a shipwreck off the Italian southern coast on Monday, United Nations’ agencies said in a statement. In the shipwreck, which took place about 200 kilometres (125 miles) off Calabria, a boat that had set off from Turkey eight days earlier caught fire and overturned, the U.N. agencies said, citing survivors. The Italian Red Cross said overall 12 people were rescued although one person died. (AP video shot by Valeria Ferraro)

ROME (AP) — Sixty-four people were missing in the Mediterranean Sea and several were rescued after their ship wrecked off Italy’s southern coast Monday, United Nations’ agencies said in a statement.

In a separate shipwreck, rescue workers evacuated dozens of suspected migrants but found 10 bodies trapped below the deck of a wooden boat off Italy’s tiny Lampedusa island, the German aid group Resqship wrote on Monday on the X social media platform.

The boat that wrecked about 200 kilometers (125 miles) off Calabria had set off from Turkey eight days earlier, but caught fire and overturned, the U.N. agencies said, citing survivors.

The search-and-rescue operation started following a mayday call by a French boat, the Italian coast guard said in a statement. The boat was sailing in a border area where Greece and Italy carry out search-and-rescue operations. The survivors and people still missing at sea came from Iran, Syria and Iraq, the U.N. agencies said.

The Italian Maritime Rescue Coordination Center immediately diverted two merchant vessels sailing nearby to the scene of the rescue. Assets from the European border and coast guard agency Frontex also helped.

The bodies of some of the 64 migrants missing in the Mediterranean Sea after their ship wrecked off Italy's southern coast are disembarked at the Italian southern port-city of Roccella Ionica, early Wednesday, June 19, 2024. U.N. agencies said the boat that wrecked off Calabria had set off from Turkey eight days earlier and caught fire and overturned. Eleven people were rescued Monday, but one died soon after they were brought to land. (AP Photo/Valeria Ferraro)

The survivors were brought to the Calabrian port of Roccella Jonica, where they were disembarked and entrusted to the care of medical personnel. One of the 11 rescued migrants died soon after, the coast guard said.

In the second shipwreck, the crew aboard Resqship’s boat, the Nadir, found 61 people on the wooden boat, which was full of water.

“Our crew was able to evacuate 51 people, two of whom were unconscious,” it added. “The 10 dead were in the flooded lower deck of the boat.”
