Re: what kind of headwind should a sailboat be able to motor through?

So that would be normal ? This is my first sailboat, and I only question because I have had idle/black smoke with the engine when I first bought it.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off your bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.
