[VSK5] Musto Skiff

Post by GBR13697 »

The Musto Skiff is a single-handed sailing skiff with a length of 4.55m. It features a trapeze, asymmetrical spinnaker, wings and low weight and achieves speeds of over twenty knots which makes it one of the fastest single-handed sailing boats.
It was designed for the 2000 Olympic Class trials in Quiberon by Joachim Harpprecht where it won every race in the single-handed dinghy competition.
This is as near as I can get in a VSK5 custom boat.
You can download the installer in a zip file from:

Enjoy

I was going to check it out but the download file sent Avast antivirus into overdrive. Something about trojan-gen. Is there a file in there that happens to be named something like that?

The only file in the zip is the exe. installer. Nothing different to any other download custom boat. I zipped it because some browsers object to downloading .exe files. Ther have been upwards of 90 downloads of the same file from VSK-Aus, so there is no problem with it.

Please don't think I was accusing you of distributing anything bad. I just thought there may have been a file that was named something similar that could have set off the alarm.

I had the same problem with the Moth when it came out. :?

No problem. AV programs are very cautious these days, and rightly so.
You are downloading an executable file, and any .exe is capable of being a virus.

That would lead me to believe it is your AV program being a little paranoid. If you want to be sure get the file from a friend that you know has installed it and hasn't been infected. That should give you a little more confidence disabling your AV program while installing the boat.

Cheers,

I just bit the bullet and turned the thing off... I trust Nigel just fine. ;-)

The boat looks good, had a little trouble getting it going at first, but I'm no skiff sailor. Once I got it going downwind, I was able to keep it going upwind. (The course I tried it on dropped me in straight into the wind.)

Just set-up a race and click on the boat type and it will scroll through them

Each zip file contains an executable. You should run this installation program for each model.
