Re: Production Boats and the Limits
It's been my experience that hull shape has a helluva lot to do with comfort. Where Oh Joy would slice through the waves with no noise or pounding to windward, other newer designs would pound and rattle your teeth in the same chop. The best ride I had on a boat was the little Clipper shaped hull of the Mariner 31 we are restoring. It wouldn't back worth a damn but it was a very sweet ride on or off the wind. It only displaces 11,500 but 5,000 of that is lead.
