Bob, just out of curiosity, do you know what the AVS of a typical 12 Meter is? I would think they have about the highest of any boat ever.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Steel vs Fiberglass

I chatted with Neil Armstrong, Jim Lovell, and Gene Cernan after a 100th Anniversary of Naval Aviation airshow.

I saw 'em talking by themselves, started to go on my way, then thought, what the hell?, figured I'd regret passing up on a chance to at least say 'hello.' Plus, I had some "common ground": USNA grad, Aero major, flew fighters, Those guys were my childhood heroes. Glad I did. We talked about naval aviation and space. They were as gracious as they could be, and tolerant of my intrusion. It was a memorable few minutes.

And for BS, I've done it on a steel hulled submarine so my post counts as an on topic post

What a trio - those guys were my adulthood heroes.

Re: Steel vs Fiberglass

One of the first astronauts owned a Freeport 36, Maybe Neil Armstrong. I think he still owns it.

Jon:
I'm not sure but it would be more than 140 degs and probably n more then 160 degs. I'll dig around a bit this weekend and see if I can find anything. If I had to guess I';d say 178. degs.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

I feel that is missing a couple of digits and giving a false sense of accuracy. If you are going to provide info try to at least make it reasonable

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
