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.

He already told us, silly. He balanced a scale model on a pencil while eating ice cream and standing on a grocery store scale. Add each of those up, carry the 3, and boom...1.8M Pounds of Fukushima Debris Crushing Fury!

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

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.

Thanks Mark. I'm just doing what I can to have a good time. I'm going sailing on Wednesday on my buddies turbo F27. It's his birthday and we plan on racing around the Sound all day.

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

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.
