Taipan 28 - How well offshore?


I''ve used the standard screening formula for AVS (available on the Web), but your point is taken about 180 deg. being maximum - apparently the formula isn''t perfect (or I overestimated draft minus keel by 6"). In any case, I''m sure you''re thinking of the wrong boat: the Taipan is decidedly not a fin keeler, but a modified full keel by any definition. Not sure what you mean by shallow draft either - it draws 4''6" - a full 12" more than the H-28 you speak highly of and 6" more than the comparable Pearson Triton (also 28''LOA and similar displacement).
