Re: Shameless plug

She looks like a great boat.

Not ugly at all IMHO but I am biased when it comes to centre cockpits!

Looks like it has a very similar layout to us and we find our boat incredibly useable.

Best of luck with the projects.

Freeboard/Free Bird. Nice touch dude.

Nice boat. You'll love that aft berth. Sail on brotha!

Re: Shameless plug

Dang Jonesy, that really does top the Georgian 23.

Sweet.

Can we take a pool for distance in feet from DWL to top of proposed cockpit enclosure?

My money is on ... 10'

Re: Shameless plug

I'm curious to hear your opinion on how it sails. It looks like a wedding cake, but it might perform better than one would think.

Re: Shameless plug

Lotsa S2s in central Ontario. We had one in the club, don't remember if it was an 8 or an 8.5.

It was on the faster end of the spectrum.

But then he's coming off a Georgian 23, so he's not picky!

Re: Shameless plug

Now that I own a boat with lots of freeboard, I'm curious what effect it has on performance. I know it can be a liability when reducing windage under severe conditions, but I've always wondered if it mattered that much with regular sailling. It seems to me that hydrodynamic drag would be 100X more of a factor than aerodynamic drag, so shouldn't the extra windage be negligible?

Not when you're maneuvering at the dock, or swinging on an anchor.
