Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Thanks guys,

The bow extension is not going to happen. I can just imagine what it would do to the balance, let alone trying to get a shape that would not disturb fluid flow. Although its an interesting thought as it would not affect the overall length of the boat, like a scoop on the stern would. That has also crossed my mind as a platform is always useful.

I've been looking at the polar diagram Jens sent over and it makes sense. I guess I get close to that as well. We had 2-3 meter waves and were also going against the current so I should not have expected better. But what a slog!

Jens looks like you got yourself a full batten package.. Looks nice!
