Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

Alex:
No. The SLIVER will live on Bainbridge Island on the dock in front of the owner's house. But the boat will be at CSR on the Canal for some time while it is being outfitted, rigged and finished. You could stop by and take a look anytime.

I don't fault Wolf for the 183 degree limit of positive stability mistake. He's just a boat owner and I don't expect boat owners to be experts on stability numbers. But Brent entertained the idea and commented on it. I would expect someone calling himself a yacht designer to be familiar enough with stability figures to know immedietely that there can be no such thing as 183 degrees of positive stability. Of course he blows it off now but if you go back and read the exchange I think it speaks for itself.

My point is this: If someone is going to put forward ideas on the elements of yacht design they need some credibility to establish they are expert in the field.
