A new trailer sailer



Found these, from when my boat, for a 3 hour period, and a distance of 50 yards, was actually a trailer sailer...

Probably one of the biggest trailer sailers I've seen..

I wonder what keel it has....

That was the lowest it has ever been to the ground...

The cable is for lowering your cast iron centerboard alex, I bet by now it's rusty

Seriously though, how is the keel attached in your boat? It's a bulb keel right?
