Re: Interesting Sailboats
I'm liking the look/concept of the RMs more and more.. looks like a fun boat to own and sail.
I'm wondering if they are prone to pounding in a chop with those flat forward sections? Even more extreme than the flat sections on some IOR designs, which are known to pound quite badly...
I talked with one owner he said that "pounding in a chop is only a noticeable while motoring"
I understood that as soon as the boat heels over there is no problem with the flatness in the middle.
