Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Thanks Mark. That was very informative.

"he has had a mathematical error somewhere in his calculations."
BS and calculations? Surely you jest.

The Fred Flintstone school of yacht design.

I know it's done but even as a 15 year old kid I figured that balancing shapes on a, I used my triangular scale, was BS. It was just not precise. I use a calculus method with Simpson's multipliers. It takes a bit of time but the results are reliable

You are quite welcome Bob. I also would like to say thanks to you for all the posts you give us here, the SLIVER is beautiful by the way. I am always grateful when those whose work is simply all around us take the time to talk and give us their insight.

Mark

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...

Hey Smack, maybe we should take BS on one of his boats and go get us some Fukushima Debris Souvenirs and bring them back and sell them...

With all of that stuff out there we should at least be able to make enough to pay someone to help tutor BS with the math.

Only one problem,He'd have to be willing to learn something,Doesnt seem likely so far.I am waiting for one of those big Fukushima piers to wash up in Kelly's cove.I am a block and half away.Ill run down and claim it, refloat it and build a steel origami houseboat on it.

Actually, just put a sail on the Fukushima Pier. It'll be at least as fast as an origami boat...and tougher too.

How do you figure? Have you forgotten that they outrun the racing boats in San Diego!

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
