Jeff why do I have a feeling that if I said I liked hamburgers you would say that you studied cooking at the Culinary Institute?

sailing or spouting?

This thread just goes to highlight the fact that (most) men are more fond of hearing themselves talk than they are of actually sailing!

Seriously, why don't we just do a "Sail-Off" and make bets to pit Surfesq against Jeff H in a man-to-man contest on the ocean? I think this is the best solution and it would also be very entertaining to watch for me and the darling young Canadian!

I start the betting with $5 (US) on Surfesq - even if he does not win in the end, we can be sure he will ram into Jeff and cause some kind of mayhem out on the waves.

Any takers?

Before I take your bet, I'd like to know what boats the two will be sailing in...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Definitely Sunfish. Perhaps Jeff H. can give the design history and heeling characteristics in a stimulating lecture before the race! Afterwards he can serenade us with some ancient Gregorian Chants while he explains the optimum temperature for cooking hot dogs. lol. (Just kidding Jeff).

My, my, my how they do carry on in Annapolis!

My old full keel S/S was quite comfortable in a seaway. My fin and skeg Ron Holland feels really good too (and it's REALLY stiff). A well designed and well found vessel when sailed with PROPER TRIM for the conditions will be comfortable.

Each vessel will have its charicteristics and will need to be handled and trimmed accordingly. Both that full keeled tub and that sleek fin'er will labor like pigs in a seaway if over canvassed or overtrimed. Wouldn't you guy's agree?

Remember some of the IOR designs that would go to winward like holy hell, but when run off would either squat and go nowhere, or death roll you into broach city. How does one make that craft comfortable? Ans: don't go down wind stupid! Who can forget seeing those old pancake with a point racers rounding the winward mark and everyone scooting aft befor the lady did a nose dive. LOL!

P.S. Sunfish would be cool One of the funnest sails I ever had was running from St.John to St. Thomas on a Sunfish and flying right onto the beach at the old Sheraton Grand Resort (long sold to some other conglomerate).

Sail off it is!

Dewey: I cant top sailing from St. John's to St. Thomas on a Sunfish! That's excellent. lol. Here is a good one: When my daughter was about 8 months old, I took my ex-wife to St. John's on vacation. We decided to go to Yost Van Dyke for the day. The ferry broke down and so we hired a fishing boat to take us the rest of the way. Quite a wet mess...but quite fun. Proving the point that it is not the size of the ship..but the motion of the ocean!
