I hope for someone else to provide some constructive opinions. Failing this its probably best to close this thread that I have started and go back to what this forum is for, that being for IOM's.

I thought I would spend the time updating my blog profile on this site also. Enjoy!

I have had the bug for a week so havent been doing much on the spitfire. My fathers D2 design has been launched. I will post some videos and photos of it soon. Sailed very well and we are very happy with it. Its a radical design featuring a reverse bow, rather bright paintjob, and tumbelhome if thats how you spell it.

Hi Toni,
I still think the IOM is still the fastest growing class in RC sailing and those Britpops there is nearly one new one on every new page of this thread LOL.

I do the registration in the USA, I just counted the number of registrations and transfers so far this year....48 so far. Seems like a lot of activity to me.

By far the biggest group of people that are new to IOM's are from the Northwest region of the US.

Hi Ted,

Its funny, how many Britpops have been registered in the USA, I have heard of 2 maybe more but no where the number that I have seen going stateside.

Would be great for some feed back.

Mike,

We have 17 Britpops registered but not all of them are here yet. Some other numbers of recent designs are 17 Lintels, 16 Pikanto's (but they took several years to get that many).

I know there are a few Fraktals (sp?), V8's and Chienz on order as well.

I wonder if the success of the Britpop will prove to bug Brad G. I'm guessing that Brad has already thought of areas where the Britpop's design could be improved but now he finds himself in an impossible stale mate situation.
On one hand he must be totally thrilled with the boats performance and sales but at the cost of not being able to refine and develop newer designs for the foreseeable future is probably a high price to pay!

I would guess that Brad Gibson isn't "bugged" by the success of the Britpop. I also don't think the fact that a lot of people have one or want one will stop Brad from doing updates if needed. Graham Bantock came out with a new design every year or two as did Jeff Beyerly and Ian Vickers. And many builders like Dave Creed with the Lintel also regularly make changes to their existing boats. I'm sure that if or when the time comes that Brad feels the design is holding him back he will take a look at improvements. For now, though, from what I can see, the Britpop seems to be the fastest all around boat out there that doesn't need any changes. It certainly seems to be the boat every other designer is trying to copy (lol)....

There is a document called "allocation of places" on same website that describes how entries are managed.

List of entries confirmed with reserves will be available within a week or two.
