Re: Converting swing board trailer to wing keel trailer?

Take an empty water bottle, cap on. Fill your sink with water. Put a fan beside the sink, on. Push the water bottle towards the fan.

Then, get some duct tape and tape a loonie or something to the bottom of the bottle, aft of the centre of floatation and repeat the experiment.

Note any changes in the way your water bottles reacts to the wind from the fan.

Then tell me I don't understand the principles of boat trim.
