I think you have that Sa/D wrong - check here. It says it's over 20.

Oh and yes and Yes, Surfs on a run, and Surfs on a reach! Spent our last race doing just that! Spent nearly our whole race above theoretical hull speed.

The Spinnaker is massive on them.

Re: Polars, PHRF, boat speed, boat shopping

I was careless in my search for specs, and did not notice I looked at a Catalina 25, rather than the Capri 25.

I just went back and looked at the spec you listed, and noticed a fin keel. Is there a version with a swing keel or dagger board? 4.2' draft is not going to be trailer launchable.

Re: Polars, PHRF, boat speed, boat shopping

I know this is an old thread but didn't realize this statement was hanging out there... so I thought I'd clarify.

I trailer launch and retrieve my Capri 25 twice yearly... It's doable... but you much strap launch it... There are literally dozens of videos on strap launching keel boats.

Much larger keel boats than 4'2" are launched in this method, including J/80s, with 5' keels. Honestly the tricky part isn't launching its retrieval, especially if your launch ramp is steep (mine is)... You must have a bow roller, to bring the bow up and forward as you winch the boat onto the trailer. This is required to take a flat boat, and mate it to a trailer that is at up to 20 degrees off level.

like this:

Re: Polars, PHRF, boat speed, boat shopping

That is an interesting way to do it. I'm curious how you encourage the trailer to go down into the water. Many launch ramps level out not too far after you are off the ramp. Not down hill enough for the trailer to roll on its own, especially if its muddy.

I put my boat in the water for the first time this pasts Sunday. When I returned to the ramp, the center board was dragging. The boat would not make it all the way to the dock without pulling up the center board. My draft is 4 feet. I have to be real careful not to get hung up on this shallow lake. I got caught twice under sail. It was good to get it out on the water. I need to learn a few technical things on how to get the sail shape like it should be. The sails don't seem stretched out, but they do tend to pocket to the point were they are hooking on the end. Both sails seem to do that. I also could get the sail to lay open at the top. It either wanted to pocket all the way up, or scoop out in the middle. Both the jib and the main had this issue.
