Re: Weather helm and Weight

crew wt and placement can be a BIG factor in weather helm. On my 28' boat, I am moving people about frequently. Down wind especially, not so much for weather helm, but to get the ass out of the water so we are faster downwind! We can gain upwards of 1/4 knot sometimes a half this way.


She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
