You're going to come down to your boat one morning and find it rocking like crazy because some Great White is humping your keel.

Your going to scare the fish.

Whoso would be a man must be a nonconformist.
He who would gather immortal palms must not be
hindered by the name of goodness, but must explore
if it be goodness.

I love it Giu

What do you draw seven to nine feet?

Hope he knows to always swim above the bottom and not go rutting around in the mud

Okay Alex, now you've started something. Marty is drooling over your keel art! It's very cool! Luckily we have a black keel but now he wants to do an orca!

I like the idea of an Orca as a bulb keel. Now all you need is some white anti-fouling paint.

Now if your Orca were to chase Giu's Shark...who would win???

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.

The Orca! There are many pic showing them attacking and killing great whites. Not sure if any of the local Orcas from teh J or K pods have, but NG has them killing great whites. Puget sound is a little cold for GW's. Altho a few 6 gills are around, dogfish a plenty, basking and whale sharks...

Unfortunetly we do not have a bulb, just a typical fin keel. I have pics as of ~noon PDT 6/5 with in 2 hrs of being out of the water. Would just need to figure out how to post.......ie I need more time. Another local option, an octopus, star fish, B&W Porpose that look like miniture orcas- saw a school of about 15 or so 2 wks ago out with my 18 yr old daughter. Spouse drew up half a crab coming and going on template I was working on last night.........hmmmmmmmmm.......

Nice touch Gui

Makes me wonder what would fit on the exposed portion of my swing keel.

Noticed you're logged in Alex (also noticed you voted honestly with a 25% vote in the sailing poll ).

How was the trip south and were there any survivors besides you?

TB...we arrived safely and unfortunately the weather was not helping. We had 2 days with no wind at all....we did get some sailing done, but motored a lot.

Motoring is needed sometimes, like we needed this week.

My boat has 1892 miles logged and the engine has 180 hours total working time. I guess I motor less than 25%....but I do motor when there is no wind and I need to get somewhere..for my daysails around here motor is zero.
