Re: Full Keel

PCP, this is for you, But I dislike getting off topic and I apologize.
I agree that a Bavaria Match 42 is probably faster than a Malo 43 on a short race course. (please dig up the PHRF numbers...

Re: Full Keel

Classic30, Thanks for the response and the chance to, once again, state my position. You are very right. I should have been more clear. The ARC+ is not a race. The boats are simply doing the...

Re: Full Keel

I am once again referencing the ARC+ and the very fine performance of the Laurin 32, Corona Ag. The overweight, full keeled, short, ancient, double ender that is currently sailing faster than many of...

Re: Full Keel

The Laurin 32, Corona Ag, continues to do quite well in the ARC +. The Passport 40 continues to be last, as they close in on their destination. Why is it that the only full keeled boat, a double...

Re: westsail 32, that bad?

One more thought: The Westsail-32 is, of course, not the only boat abused by “hearsay” The DownEast 38 was recently mentioned around here in a derogatory way. It being just one other example.

Re: Full Keel

The Laurin 32, Corona Ag, the only full keel boat, and the shortest boat, continues to do well in the ARC+. The Passport 40 continues to be last, boat for boat.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

As I said, “I have sailed all the other boats mentioned” (not the Brent Swain). That is why I chose to list them. I am a delivery skipper and brokerage “on call” skipper. I sail a lot of boats. ...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Over the years I have encountered at least 2 Brent Swain boats. Probably more but I do not always know the designer of the boat I am looking at. I do not recall the names of the boats, the names of...

Re: Full or fin keel?

Paulo,
You claim to have sailed at 6.5k in apparent winds of 18k @ 28degrees. That equals an angle of about 43 degrees and 13k of True wind.
CONGRATULATIONS: That is the same as an 80 year...

Re: Why I like a full keel

The assertion that a full keel yacht, with an attached rudder and the propeller in an aperture, is as vulnerable as a fin keel yacht for catching lines, like crab pots, is one of the most outlandish...

Re: Sailing yacht design

My ideal boat would be very close to the design of the Westsail 32. This is, of course, an Archer, Atkin, Crealock, derivative. Having sailed over 150 boats over 160,000 miles I have found nothing...

Re: A blue water sailer that can go in light winds

This thread starts out asking about “Blue Water” boats in “Light airs“. That usually implies certain requirements. The thread ended showing a nice video of a race boat in heavy air. I see no...

Re: Full or fin keel?

mitiempo: “isn’t that a fair comparison” to compare boats by their displacement. Yes, I agree it is fair. The Westsail 32 vs. the Beneteau 42; and the Alajuela 38 vs. the Bavaria 50.
