I don't recall why the boat weighed 32,000 lbs. except that is what I have on the drawings so that is what I had in mind. Often times when I am beginning a new hull shape I don't include the dipslacement of the keel because I may not know what I am going to do with the keel yet. That may be the case here.

If you are simply remarking on why I designed it to be so heavy the reason is stability. As you know, San Francisco is a windy place. Typically on a summer afternoon you will have 20 to 25 knots steady in the Bay. I wanted the schooner to stand up and be a powerful, stiff boat. With that low draft I needed displacement to get the stability the client wanted.

Again, many thanks for the well thought out spread.
Bob you are the first designer that had thank me to put a boat here. Some few had participate on the thread but you are "from the house" and it is with great pleasure that I have posted about the 41ft Schooner. But you are mistaken, the post looks good because the boat looks good and that's your merit not mine

I hope to post again about your new boat when the boat hits the water. Please when testing make a movie and take photos. I am sure that we are all interested in see how beautiful that boat is and how well it will sail.

Regards

Paulo
