Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo:
The client will have his spin hal and genoa hal on the mast winches. I suppose we could go with one winch but for now it's two.

The boat will have the Leisure Furl system as the client has that now and likes it. There will not be any reefing winches. Main hal and furling lines will run back to the cockpit to the winch on top of the cabin trunk to starboard.

This is the identical set up the client has now and he likes it.
Part of this design brief was to give the cliengt a boat thatg he will feel immediately familiar with when he first goes sailing. He is sticking with the sailing systems that he knows work well for him now.

"bathtub bow" I like that. I know why it works but I wish it did not work so well. It's very hard to look at. Great photi of that bow. Reminds me of some of the old, traditional Dutch yachts.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.
