Re: Interesting Sailboats

Interesting how the Ker 40 and 37 Bolt depart so radically from the current drop of wide transoms/chines on offer everywhere else.. the boat must have an extremely effective keel/RM.

At :45 and 2:37 in the first video you an see also the incredibly tight sheeting angle on the non overlapping headsail.. I'm amazed they can carry that narrow an entry angle.. can the boat truly point that high?? Perhaps only in the flat water shown..?
