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?
I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
