Re: Rallies Gone Wrong
again depends where you cruise...
one thing is for sure, high davits and a dinghy for a longa passage is disaster waiting to happen on medium size boats...especially if they are made of thin stainless and not through bolted below the deck
the number of davits that crack from a simple wave hitting the dinghy a certain way has been extensively reported many times...especially on smaller boats where its more possible
not to mention again windage
youd be surprised how much that affects downwind sailing or trying to to sail tight...the stern constantly wants to constanty slip under you effectively making you have too much weather helm
