Re: Eighty-year old wooden full keel boat beats new "Interesting Boats" in Transpac
Bob has made the point several times that narrow boats are easier to keep going fast. Paulo has exposed on why current open class boats and their take offs are faster if sailed well. Be interesting to know PHRF of Dorade v. modern boats of same LOA and elapsed times for same LOA. Still, Dorade is drop dead gorgeous and a great boat.
