We do now have a process for approval, and a place on the website for NAB rules interpretations to be posted -- so its just a matter of someone taking the initiative to write them up and push them through.

:: The intent of the anti integration rule has always been
:: interpreted to disalow expensive electronic systems and
:: prevent another 'gotta-have-it-to-compete' arms race.
:: Thus it is a cost saving measure protecting the equality
:: of boats in the fleet. If the majority of the class
:: feels that this should be changed then we can vote on
:: it.

:: Many advances in technology were not forseen in our
:: class rules and I belive that an Interpretations section
:: should be added to the rules to clarify them to prevent
:: disputes in the future ASAP. I will write one and send
:: it out soon for coment.

:: :: It would be nice to clarify the intent of the
:: :: prohibition. All the actual rules say is 'Integrated
:: :: Electronics'. You assume it comes afoul of the rules if
:: :: it's hooked up to a GPS. I always figured it meant you
:: :: couldn't have compass and wind data correlating with
:: :: speed data to give you stuff like true wind direction,
:: :: VMG data, etc. None of this stuff is particularly
:: :: expensive nowdays.
:: ::
:: :: While I wouldn't find this overabundance of data too
:: :: useful on my Express, it would make sense to clearly
:: :: state what is and isn't allowed.

:: :: :: We have the tacktick wireless set-up on Moxie. BTW,
:: :: :: doesn't violate the rules as long as you are just using
:: :: :: speed and depth. I believe it becomes integrated if you
:: :: :: hook it up to a GPS so it would give you VMG to a mark.
:: :: :: But that is just my take on the way the rules are
:: :: :: written.
