Re: Old boat going fast
Hartley. What the heck are you talking about? The title of the post was descriptive not a comment. A 55 boat going fast in 35 knots of wind is not surprising, so what. Your statements about plastic boats being slower etc means what? According to the owner the boat doesn't surf being 60,000 lbs.So what. The multi-colored staysail and spinnaker are quite striking when seen in person.
My intent in posting was to show an old classic steaming along with full sails and a massive bow wake. Great pic from a cell phone, that's it.
