Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
I would agree with you on that, ie where one has to have the same hull etc. BUT< one still sees folks trying to do numbers with out certain elements in the total equation, and things do not add up as they should in the end, to get to a point one wants to see vs how it will REALLY be!
Although we never actually ran the numbers the redesign of Wolf's boat began as an effort to show how wetted surface could be reduced and the vertical center of gravity lowered without changing the basic hull shape of the boat. Then things got out of hand......oh well. ..No matter what else anyone sez, I know I had a good time!
From the hook on Synergy listening to a shore side band play Mustang Sally right after In The Midnight Hour. Must be thier Wilson Pickett set.
