Re: Towing and being towed

I once picked up a disabled 36' fishboat anchored south of James Island. Wind SE 25 and rising. We went back to Sidney. Only had the main up but for the tow it must have been disconcerting. Josh Slocum tells a tale of being towed(Liberdade) Big boats don't experience going over hull speed very often so don't see a problem.
