Re: Why a racer for cruising discussion...

Paulo:
You are being silly. You are introducing radical hull shapes into the discussion. If I can do that I can prove anything. We are not talking about Volvo 60's or Open 40's here.

Sure they are wide. But they are thin. There is little usable volume there. You sure as hell cannot load up the stern with tankage or anything of any weight. You must know that. On a heavy boat you can fit a 100 gallon fuel tank down in the bilge over the keel, keep the wreight amidships and lower the VCG while you are at it.

Try that in the stern of you light and wide race type boat. Ridiculous!

Or maybe, you just want to argue. If you do then I'm going to watch hockey.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.
