LIS...thanks for playing! (G) The serious answer to your question is that the boat "tilts" or heels heavily when racing so it is easier for the helmsman to have a choice of which side of the boat to put his body on while steering especially in a wide beamed "big fat boat" like Giuletta!!

FAT?????????????????

WHO's FAT??????????????????????

HEY YOU...YES YOU...SHORTISLANDNOISE......

WHO YOU'RE CALLING FAT????


WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?????

First you don't know your ass from your elbow, then you insult my boat????

Here's fat for you...Sort of like Cam's boat...




and here's elegant.....





Now seriously...Cam's boat (the blue one) is a pure thoroughbread race boat, very unstable, very narrow (we call it beam, not fat), and fast, with a very short keel to give it more stability, it is too fast...that is why it needs two masts..because its like having two engines...that is a race boat...one of the fastest around. Please print a photo and take it to work, tell everyone its an America's Cup boat. It was used in the Suiss America's cup in the lake they have there, the "SHEISSEKOPF LAKE".

Then my boat, a liveaboard, its a cruiser, it has a very long keel because it does not need stability, and I also have only one mast and much shorter, and because it is slow he is beamier, not fatter, ok???

I have two wheels because me and my wife fight a lot..not really, I have two whells because being smaller they were cheaper. Thay are made of recycled plastic.




You don't have a photo of yours to post by any chance do you???

If you have more quaetions pm me..I can explain better what the differences are, ok??

Yo Alex, is that a recent pic of Jane Fonda?

And about the second image, did you have to row the dinghy out in front to take it?

Leave the poor guy alone, Giu. You're scaring him off! Especially with that picture of you. You look horrible in yellow.

Welcome, LIS. I am from Oyster Bay. Stick around, you will find some great info on this site. You may need to wade through a lot of our jesting though.

Nahhh...that's a pictorial analogy to Cam's boat..."built for speed, not for confort"...unlike my slow fat boat, with its small sailplan and wide waist...

Built for blue water passages and the caribbean, hence the large keel.

What do you mean leave him alone???

I am actually explaining to him the differences a racer (Cam's boat) and a cruiser bluewater boat (miine).

That is not me, that's my 3rd cousin...Alberta...she lives in Oyster Bay, Portugal, near New Jersey, Spain.

Lis, I was joking, she is not my cousin...sorry, but the boats are right, OK??

Rick-

Actually the photo was taken from one of these boats, which Giu was having trouble catching...

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.

Alex take no notice of the indigent folks for they know nothing. Your beautiful boat is like your beautiful cousin they both just need the sign on the rear:
