Possibly the worst website I have ever seen.

http://www.alexanderyachts.com/page007.html

I don't know if you are associated with Alexander yachts Lady Moonraker, but if you are I suggest you pass this comment on to them. No-one is likely to take a website like that seriously, so if they do have a product or message they need to address the issue as a matter of some urgency.

no affiliation i was told about it by some one at the club and he'd said he had seen it working and yes it enables the yacht to go somewhat faster.I agree the website is built by a yachtsman.

So just a coincidence that two forums received virtually identical spam from first-time posters within minutes of each other?

It's sad to see such cynicism from one so young.

Just had a cheeky PM from she's-no-lady moonraker telling me to "stay out" of her thread if I wasn't able to offer any advice on using this contraption. :lol:

Anyone else had such a communication?

No - but if it helps I think it's a really bad idea.

Jings! Yer no' of'n wrang Pete and here ye ur - richt again.

We're quite happy to debate the merits of this great leap forward in sail design with you moonraker but it would be so much easier if you were up front with us. We quite often get designers of wacky sailing gear promoting their ideas on here and some of them even send us their stuff to test. :)

PM sent.
