Re: Something to hold tiller in place

One more vote for the wavefront tiller clutch. When using the tiller extension you can clutch and clutch with your toes as well.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

it seems that SQ 25 will be a luxury trailer sailor. I wonder where that bulbed keel will carried and how complicated will be to install it when launching of the trailer. It reminds me of the bigger...

Re: Chines and rude self centered opinions

Paulo, I don't think Mr.Perry is patronizing us, neither that his language is rude and insulting (the exception being the qualification "stupid" regarding Eric's opinion at the end of post 6029 just...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

And once you learn to balance you take them off (with the rough grinder) because they hinder your counter steering.

Re: Chines

Ok Paulo. We disagree. But this is a more philosophical disagreement. And I think also that no chines hull will deliver better information to the sailor who sails his boat badly.

But I am...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Downwind about the lift I agree 100%. Upwind, when heeled, the leeward chine will be underwater most of the time, so it will not work, but I guess this will not be detrimental to the performance on...

Re: Chines

Then it means that the chines' purpose is to put limitations on your manner of sailing., acting as rails on a tram - you get punished if you derail, tram gets insulted :D. Like a modern car that ...

Re: Chines

Then I guess that the chines' effectiveness (without being punished by increased drag) depends on their location, extent of pronouncement and most of all by the angle of heel, the latter being...

Re: Chines, cruising and racing

Though I don't think I am qualified to express a competent opinion, I disagree that a hard chined hull will contribute to better control on a crusing boat. May be downwind in fresh wind when planing...

Re: Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 349

Re: Dufour

Thanks Paulo, as usual you are well informed. I think I read somewhere recently that Grand Soleil may be in trouble because Bavaria "didn't want them any more". It seems that well known boatyards and...

Re: Luxury versus good design and modern building techniques.

Actually I am no fan of Halberg Rassy. Currently, in our waters (west Black Sea coast) there are a few Halberg Rassys (from 31 to 43) and I am not impressed by their sailing ability. their owners...

Re: 250 000 at Dusseldorf boat show.

I can't believe why one is going to downgrade from Halberg Rassy to Dufour. There are fast boats in the same quality league of Halberg Rassy.

Re: Sizzler Speedster

And there are no inserts in the hull to distract you from the nice view inside!

P.S. JimMcGee, I liked very much that quotation from "The sea and the wind that blows".
