Re: Full or fin keel?
And contrary to what you say, they have radically different RM diagrams. The racers RM would be considerably higher by a wide margin. ..
......This boat has an RM double what the Oceanis has. Again.. where did you come up with the idea these boats had similar RMs?
Glad to see that you finally agree that the 40class boat is a lot stiffer.
Since it seems that we are agreeing, I have to answer to a honest question
Regarding RM the ones from the two boats would not be that different.
What would be massively different is the GZ curve
, the arm length curve. For the RM curve you have to multiply those values by the displacement of the boat and as the Oceanis weights about the double
that will make things more even. In the end it would not be a considerable difference.
