Re: Eighty-year old wooden full keel boat beats new "Interesting Boats" in Transpac
So what we learned is a well-sailed wooden boat with a favorable rating can beat a condo with a mast.
An old race car could probably beat a 2000 Hyundai Elantra.
beat the Beneateau 47.7 and the Jeanneau 44 on ACTUAL
time, and corrected time, so an old wooden yawl with a full keel can beat a condo boat, boat to boat, without any correction.
That was also one of my points in the Hobie 33 thread that was lost - it beat the much larger, modern (supposedly better and faster) boat show boats, and almost the entire fleet, in actual time.
