Re: Herreshoff Marlin 23 in plastic
Hi all.. I have been looking into the Marlin, one of the most beautiful of small boats in my humble opinion. From what I have read here, the problem with the weather helm has a lot to do with how far forwards the rudder is compared to the size and shape of the main..
As noted, raking a reef in seems to help. Do you think cutting down the main to a gaff rig would help any? I think that, added to Starry Night's small Sprit, would make her a lot more "neutral"
