SC...and I reiterate...they were NOT bilge keels in the traditional sense of a 2 keel boat...the boat had a standard keel and the bilge plates were used to GROUND the boat rather than for sailing performance stability as traditional bilge keels are. The boat did not capsize. In ken's own words..
She was originally designed as what is known as a bilge keel boat with a full keel and 16 s.f. plates on each side of the keel to allow her to stay upright when the tide ebbs. I had these cut off after talking with designer, Robert Perry who agreed they were 400 lbs. each with a lot of wetted surface and useless for my plans.
Somehow I think I'll trust what Robert Perry says...after all he did ok with my boat and the Valiants and Sagas etc. ...and yes...it is fun getting into the thick of things again you ass full of crap! (G)
P.S...you're reading too much!! (G)

So Cam,

Does sailnet NOT allow you to express and opinion as a moderator, even if it is YOUR opinion, and NOT sailnets? This does not seem right. What you just said, should be and "IS" you opinion of the two sailers ways of doing things. Your job as moderator, should only be to remove bad words, posts, transfer to other forums that are more appropriate etc. At least that is my job at another forum I am at. I can say my opionion, altho I will not say whom is an ass and full of crap, as that is not me anyway of saying I do not agree!

Well Cam, i guess 2, 400 pound plates of steel measuring 4ft by 4ft wouldn't add any stability right.....i think you are being blind to the obvious here. I never stated it was a twin keel boat... I prefer to read so i can learn more about sailboat design and history. Any boat with 32 sq feet of "wetted" keel surface and 800 pounds removed from the bottom of the hull will become less stable!
By the way Ken Barnes grw up sailing in southern California...on the ocean, and his boat did roll from being hit by a wave.... and I would rather read than type. Cherio old buddy I'm off to the crappah

Driver,
Are sure of this? Either your geography is a bit off, or I'm mistaken about her dockage at NEB for repair. As I said, I wasn't at the marina during the layover, but the photo I posted sure looks more like my marina than Brewers . . . which is much smalller.

Here's an aerial of just the north end of the lagoon at NEB showing my dock, with the travelift to the northeast, and 400 dock beyond to the south . . . where I believed her boat to be docked in July of 2005, although, she could have been at the 300 dock - next one south.

Cam is no longer a moderator... and is just a plain user like most other people here.

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.

Dawg...he was commenting on my coomment that NOW I can mix it up a bit more since I am no longer moderating.

Blt2ski.... Actually...Sailnet never told me to temper any opinions I had or objected to anything I said..so kudos to them. Nevertheless, when I strapped the moderator title on...I felt that my conduct and words would reflect on them either favorably or unfavorably in many people's minds and so sometimes I just shut up rather than get into a fight or chose kinder gentler words than i might otherwise use and tried to be a "moderating" force in some arguments as opposed to actively taking sides. I don't think I ever left any doubt about where I stood on issues that were important to me. So yes... I think I am a bit freer now in my own mind to say exactly what I think. Perhaps the moderator role should be anonymous and we should keep our own screen names independently. Hope that's clear and I don't know you well enough to call you an ass full of crap so I will leave that for another time! (G)

SC31...well I guess we are gonna continue to disagree on the bilge keels. Actually Bob Perry is a regular on another board and I will pose the question over there in hopes of an answer & let you know what he says about it. All best on the crappah!!

Southern California waters are fairly protected by a chain of Islands from Point Conception to around San Diego, not that it dosen't get nasty at times, but you could sail the Santa Catalina Channel your whole life, the worst it had to offer and the best you'll get is a false sense of preparedness.

I don't know KB's sailing background at all but growing up and sailing Southern Califorina waters is not that impressive of a resume and would not be my sole experience prior to a curcumnavigation.

Definitely BSM North Yard in the pic.... I recognize all the boats across the aisle in F dock. We were just on the other side of the dark colored hull power boat in the foreground at the time. Brewer's gave her some 'free time' in the yard to prep for her trip. Saw her receive several pretty impressive awards today down at the Museum in Bristol.

Robert Perry responds

As promised, I contacted Robert Perry about his OK'ing Ken Barnes cutting off the bilge keels. He kindly responded and here's what he has to say:

Ken sent me a few pics of the boat and asked my opinion. He was not the most
informed sailor to deal with and I did my best with the scanty info I was
presented with. Given the overall displacement of that boat, it's draft and
general configuration I did not feel the weight of those plates would
significantly contribute to stability. I had no drawings to work with and I
thusly did no calculations. I offered an opinion. I feel the same way now. I
am convinced that even with the plates the boat would have rolled.

Hope that clarifies the issue.
