Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
Your discussion about the impact force might be more persuasive if you point out what particular page of the book supported your assertions. To suggest the readers have to read the whole book does not make sense.
If you actually click on the link it takes you right to the page. The formula is right there. I am sorry that the other formula did not come out right when I posted it. It should have looked a lot more like F= m/vt but since I used a math code that this forum does not accept it looked right in my typing it up, but did not translate. Which is also why I have not posted the other formula here either, just the link.
I was going to write some other stuff here, but in all honesty I just decided to let it go. If you would like to build BS boats in your backyard knock yourself out. Personally I will take one of Bob's over BS any day and twice on Sunday.
It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
