Re: Too Much, Too Soon?

You'd have to be quick... at 7 knots you're doing 12 feet per second. So you just heaved to and stopped in 0.4s?

My Bristol ain't stopping in less than 100ft at which point heaving to will have you moving in a direction that won't take you closer than maybe 50 ft from the victim.

Bristol 31.1, San Francisco Bay
