So you have doubts that a 40 class racer is more stiff than a 40ft Oceanis?

The 40 class racer has much more hull form stability, being much beamier with a much flatter hull and the 40class boat has also a much bigger B/D not to mention that it has all ballast in a torpedo at the end of a 3 m draft while the Oceanis has only a 2 m draft and a keel with the weight more distributed.

How the hell do you think stiffness it is obtained in a sailboat?

I am out!

Hey guys, you can keep scratching your heads


On the contrary Paulo, Bryce makes a lot of sense whilst you resort to personal attack.
