If you would just use the language as the English had intended it to be used you wouldn't have to explain to "morons" what you're talking about.
Also, I am pretty sure, judging by your stories, that you are going to sink your boat and hopefully not get anyone except yourself killed.
I'm thinkn his story was pretty understandable. I wonder about your story. I feel your message is kinda negative. I guess that's your point?
Going fast on a Hobie 33 sounds cool. It sounds to me like the guy had a nice ride. I can see the excitement he felt - as someone new to performance (33ULDB) boats. I don't think the guy said that he was racing it to Hawaii?
Anyway, the comment hits me as mean & nasty.
AND - here's some stuff
that picture is of a drop keel H33. No, it's not a CB. The keel moves for trailoring. The bulb keel is not intended to be adjusted at sea.
The Hobie33 is (or was) a ULDB built in the day. Built to surf, plane, reach, and run.
This boat is lite. They do ok upwind - if not overpowered, with rail meat. They will surf.
I'll save talking about boat stats.
Anyone planning to race a H33 to HA must know snit. I won't even try to say more.
Is this going doublehanded? Modified? (WT compartments). Who's racing it? How many?
Safe sailing and enjoy the ride.
PS who's gotta bring her home?
