Re: Max wind

For those who don't read the brochure the Sense I sailed had a vertical "board" at the end of the cockpit that can be raised. It is the full width of the transom and about two feet high, just under...

Re: How many things can go wrong in 4 hours

That is actually the funny part.

who gets the ticket

Lets say you are the paid captain and the owner is with you while you are doing a boat move.

Tow or Not

I moved a boat about 100 miles from the Hudson river to Shelter Is, LI NY with the owner of a newer 43' sailboat.

Re: Max wind

I did play with the Vang and the out haul. Embarrassed to say I don't remember the traveler.

Re: Max wind

This boat did have dual rudders.

There was a lot to like but I was unable to determine where the sailing fit in the mix.
I get the feeling that they are very customizable so someone can fit them...

My role was paid captain. I was with the owner who just paid 400k for the boat and just had it repainted and had a couple of ASA classes under his belt.

Re: Max wind

That is actually part of my problem with this boat. With the hard chine I believe it is not designed to heal.

I'm concerned about the initial stability vs stability after it hits 20 degrees.

I visualize the bow surging up and down and sideways enough to catch one side of your neckless and cutting it.
