My reference to "jack" was pertaining to your sock puppet identity on the BD forum. I haved no idea whio "jethro" is.
Ok I get it. You were talking inverted? Right. You talk nonsense.
"Two radically different centres of buoyancy "?
There is one VCB. There can only be one on a monohull. It changes as the boat heels and that's what creates the righting arm. It is always moving if the boat is moving.
" Such a huge crew tio sail it"?
You mean a husband, a wife, a 12 year old and a 14 year old? You talk nonsense.
Notice Bob states that " it changes as the boat heels and that 's what creates the righting arm. It is always moving when the boat is moving."
When I said the same thing on BD.net, I was called a liar. No one else claimed it to be accurate .
Yes Bob I meant inverted. Calculate the VCB when the boat is inverted, and see how far it is from all that weight under the bunks .
I rowed over to one of the 3-36 ft brentboats surrounding me. I measured the freeboard, then stepped aboard and measured it again. With my 220 lbs on the rail, it heeled 1 inch. Now try that on any of the 36 footers around you ,and see how far 220 lbs makes it heel, for a comparison . You can even try it on one of my 36 footers . Shinola is in the new marina in Campbell River , behind the super store. Autumn Wine is in Refuge Cove , desolation Sound. Silas Crosby is at the govt dock in Comox, Three more are anchored west of all the marinas in Comox, and one is anchored off the breakwater. One more is in Courtenay slough. One more in Deep Bay. One is moored behind Muddy waters pub in Nanaimo. Two more are at Newcastle Marina in Nanaimo and one more is at the Yacht club there. Three more are in Genoa Bay, and one is in Esquimault. One is in Fulford harbour, several more are in Oak Bay.
Three more are in the Caribean , two finishing circumnavigations. One is in Brazil, two or three are in Hawaii on Oahu. One is in NE Olympia. One is in Seattle . One is on the northeast coast of New Zealand.
Oh yes. I asked the owner of that immaculate Passport 47 how much he paid for her. He said $137K. How does that compare to her initial price tag? How much did he lose by owning her? Some of my 36 footers have sold for nearly that much. Shinola sold for $95 K, to an owner who is very happy with the deal he got.
