Boat is sluggish

Is my strut out of alignment? Or perhaps my rudder is a bit off kilter?

Re: Boat is sluggish

Seriously? Have you ever thought about cleaning the bottom?

Re: Boat is sluggish

Upon further reflection, I suspect the OP is having a go at us.

Re: Boat is sluggish

It's my neighbor's boat. Maybe I could shame him into getting this taken care of? I've seen him once in the two years I've been next to him. He actually put new sails on and took it out. Haven't seen him since. That is a 30' Ranger, BTW.
Go ahead- post pics of the barnacle-ridden hulls near you.

Probably a Buddhist, he can't molest the mussels but must wait for them to want to move elsewhere.

Re: Boat is sluggish

I was mad because I had to clean little ones off my prop. I can't imagine how much that drag slows the boat
