Smack operating a Canting Keel......

What happens when you let Smack out for a sail and leave him in charge of the Canting Keel.....

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.

It would seem that the keel weight up in the air would balance the weight lol..

There is no right way to do the wrong thing

That is nothing. I heard he is training this:



The ultimate challenge in what regards performance and righting moment: To add to the ballast his own weight directly over the keel

Smack's not on Generali. I can tell because if he was, he'd be out hiking next to the bulb. That's him on Hugo Boss. More in keeping with his sense of style and sophistication. He's probably getting ready to put on a trapeze harness, but doesn't want to scuff his Italian shoes before the second upwind leg.

Actually, certain people are lake sailors and wouldn't be caught dead on either of those boats, and aren't qualified to swab the decks on these boats.

Jealous much, dog?

PCP - that Hugo Boss pic is one of the coolest ever. I never heard how they got the boat that far over. I saw a series of pics where he was bailing off the keel as the boat came up. Was it pulled over by the mast you think?

Chall, back to the physics of railmeat. Somebody overestimated the heft of their crew! Great pics!

I believe that was done using ballast bags. I wouldn't want to be relying on the wind to keep the boat heeled over if I were the one standing on the keel.
