Re: Question about sail area

Chiko:
Your rig looks OK to mme.

But I think your keel is too far forward and may result in too much weather helm. I would move the keel as far aft as possible.

Why do you have so much hollow in the bow? On a small boat like this I would give it a lot more deck beam forward. With that rig and keel the boat will not be close winded so why have such a fine entry? I'd push more volume into the bow.
