Reminder from the Chief Measurer, Deck Beam Connections. The Association became aware that late in 2010 some boats presenting for measurement at World Championships had their deck beams connected to the hull which is in contravention to the Construction  Rules. All owners and skippers should check that their boats do not contravene the rules, if they do need rectification, they should contact the Chief Measurer for detailed instructions.
