Re: Interesting Sailboats

Sigh. Another thread ruined by out of control egos.

Re: Full Keel

Well, shouldn't the Modern boats be faster than the Laurin even if sailed "worse"? After all, according to the go fast gurus there is absolutely no comparison in speed between the old boat and the...

Re: Full Keel

I'm going to guess that it is moving through the water faster.... :) You guess that all the more modern boats are heaving to for meals. ;)

Re: Full Keel

Exactly. What we do know is that the older design full keel is sailing faster than the more modern design. Do you agree?

What, are you going to send the modern boat police after me? Pathetic.

Re: Full Keel

Comfort is more important to me than image :) Not to mention reliability, simplicity and cost.
But, I get a lot of compliments on my boat as well..

Re: Full Keel

Or, the new porsche is very difficult to drive fast as it is very demanding and uncomfortable (and breaks down a lot) and the old vw that is comfortable and reliable is easy to drive faster.

Re: Full Keel

Paulo, is your only explanation that because the results don't fit with your theory the sailors are the difference? Its pretty funny that you left the caveat in your old post.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
