Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

I will stop trying to use my boat to defend heavy disp and/or full keel boats because as it turns out it's performance is not typical of such boats. And yes I can't do hull speed sailing up wind, but it doesn't take much to 6.5kt, a1/4 of a knot less than the theoretical hull speed (6.75kt). I use my boat more as an example to try and beat down over generalizations "all full keel boats...." "all heavy disp boats....".
On a different note a Cape George 31 pulled into the marina here, it is 1' longer not quite a foot wider but is extremely similar (a lot more emphasis was put into accommodations, cabin trunk was carried further forward and aft).
