Be it 100% SA or using all you can get. I was doing 4 something knots the other day in 7 knots of wind. Will see how it goes here in about 45 min or so too.
So we are on a boat that has the performance range mentioned, from a heavy full keel to something more surfy, like Marty mentions.
You are going to pick up a mooring buoy in this location in your nice stable boat. Your sails are down.
Somehow, you foul your prop good and you can't fix it.
You miss the mooring buoy.
You are as close to shore as we saw in the video and the conditions are as we saw in the video.
What do you do?
