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..
From RFC 1925: "(3) With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead."
