Re: can i make more living room on my boat?

While SloopJonBs comments about ruining the value of a boat are relevant in many cases, I don't think it applies in the OPs situation. For a boat with minimal value, you might as well do what you...

I'm a girl. I don't usually wear heels, nor do I like heeling!

10-15 degrees is just fine with me and the boat definitely picks up a ton of speed, 20 is okay, 30 is a lot of work and no fun at...

Even though I have a bit more sailing experience than my SO, I am by far the whimpier sailor in our couple. I think this is pretty typical for female sailors. On my old racing crew we used to talk...
