Re: Sailboat without a mast
Another thought I had thinking about this rotational inertia stuff.
If putting mass further way from the center of rotation dampens the effect of spin, i.e. putting a mast on a boat, then by the same logic, wouldn't putting heavier weight at the ends of the boat, as opposed the middle of the boat, dampen the effect of pitching?
Maybe some of your physicists here can answer that question.
