Re: Too Much, Too Soon?
I guess you're doing it wrong. Heh-heh.
I don't know how fast we were going - and we're in our Catalina 27 (which ain't no Bristol). I do know that we stopped fast enough on one try that we could use the boat hook to snag our MOB dummy in less than 30 seconds. It seemed like about 5' - but it was probably more. Who knows.
In any case, it's a pretty amazing tactic. Your dummies may vary.
