The Wet Part Of My Boat

Now that the rudder and keel on my boat have been modified, and are in what is for now, their final version, here is (for those that may be interested) the underside of Giulietta, as it was initially built, these photos were taken on the day of her launch, and show the hull, keel and rudder with some detail.

Note the concave aft section of the hull, between rudder and keel, that is "bent" upwards. That section of the hull, was modulated in lab by computers to be able to provide the best downwind performance without affecting pointing abilities.

I've had these photos for a while but didn't want to share them until we found the right keel and rudder....the new ones are slightly different but same type.

Between these photos and what I have now, there has been a lot of experimenting and “trial and error” efforts….

The modifications, from what we had then, and what we have now, allow pointing angles of 20º, and almost 1 knot more speed downwind.

As you can see, underneath, she is quite different from what a cruising boat normally looks like. She is as flat as possible, and the objective was to reduce as much as possible the vertical sections.
Remember she was not built for crusing, but we can cruise on her, when we need to.

Just a different boat...that's all..

Enjoy.

My question is: Who would do an blue water crossing with me???

That's a fast looking boat -beautiful. How much weight is in that fin?
Actually, all I can think of when I see these pictures of these people riding in the lift is that I hope those straps are solid. It's not like there are any backups - if one of those straps goes, you are all gone.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.

Initially the keel had 2600 Kg. Now it has been substantially reduced to %$& Kg. !!


As far as riding on the boat, well, you're absolutely right...they were there (I wasn't ), by their choice, (remember, this is Europe, they wouln't sue if something happened ), the two in the front are the sons of the builder, both race in TP52, the one in the rear is the Yanmar manager...guess they trust their work...still, if the strap let go....I would worry about the boat, too...

Hi TB.

(I'm affraid of saying anything now.....we never know who might get pissed off !!)

But, since we're friends, here it goes....

It's not a tank...it's a surfboard!!!

Have you tried sailing without those blue stands, and the jeep attached to the hull??????

That hull looks remarkable similar to my old Hunter 26. And what kind of warhead does that torpedo on the bottom of the keel carry?

That looks very fast. I sailed on a truly fast boat for the first time last weekend and I think I might be in the process of being converted! Screaming around at ten plus knots everywhere is pretty cool! Have you sailed it since the mods? Or are those figures projections? I'll do a blue water passage with you anytime!
