Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat
Bob, perhaps he wasn't experienced enough to notice and too embarrased to admit it?
I imagine a big, heavy, motorsailer like a Cheoy Lee would need a decent amount of wind to push it along and suppose that resulting wave action could, maybe, mask any obvious effect of weight reduction aloft to someone not thinking about it..
