Re: Why the Bristol 32 backs so poorly

I walk mine out the finger, start the turn by hand and push the bow out from the stays and pull my self on board with the engine in revers.

I was at Ft Adams when the Americas Cup Cats were out playing on that small course. And we had a south wind, all the spectator boats were stern to the wind and holdings steady. A good 15k wind and 2 foot waves. I had no trouble holding an exact spot with the rest of the boats, go figure.
