Black boats invisible.....?

I own several black boats in different classes and thought they would be easier to see on the water. I have never been hit so many times since I switched toblack boats.....are they invisible? and NO, most of those were not my fault.....:-)))) Does someone have a link to Denis Astbury's website....?

How about black-yellow bands? Nature's way of spelling "danger, keep your distance!"

Gee, I think soon IOM class might be called the Britpop class. A few guys have em on order here in the bay area. That boat is taking over rendering most other IOM's obsolete. To bad after spending all that money on my Pikanto. Guess I will have to save my dollars for a Britpop.
Keep the cool pictures coming guys. Its cool to see all the new britpops. Anybody take any pictures as they put the boat together? Ryan

Different over here in Aust, nearly everyone here are ordering Chinez.
We have 1 in the club already 3 more on order, A britpop on order and a V8.

In Perth alot of guys are buying up Mad Max's (as everyone upgrades to the Chinez) and the State body are condsidering a Mad Max class within the IOM class. Not a bad idea if you have a heap of one design and means they can race for awards at the same time.

The 'Mainboom' blog will keep you up to date on everything that happens in the world of IOM, i have a translate function on mine.

The BritPOP! boom is similar to the TS2 boom but it certainly will not destroy the class while there are Fraktals, Arrivals, V8's, Psycho's, MMX's and others about.

I remember in the Malta world championships there were over 40 TS2's competing including their flagship skippers and an IKON won the event.
