Re: Full keel or larger boat???

I guess we will just have to agree to disagree on the speed of a full keeled boat in significant waves and swell. My experience is opposite of what you describe.
I'm sorry but that comment you made...

Re: Full keel or larger boat???

Sorry, it seems that I have hit a nerve.

In my experience I have found that a full keeled boat can compare very favorably with a fin/bulb keel in as you say "significant waves and swell"

Re: Full keel or larger boat???

Well of course, both those boats are Bob Perry designs.

Your experience in "significant waves and swell keeping boat speeds to a dawdle" is more a reflection on your abilities as a sailor...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Sigh. Another thread ruined by out of control egos.

Bob, you don't belong on this thread. Its for modern boats. None of your designs are cutting edge. Stop pretending.

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?

Calling someone hopeless is not an insult?

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

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.
