    Dave's perfect sailboat

    You can speculate all you want but the truth is Dave and Bokee have become very involved with their grandkids and Dave does not want to be away from them. They just built a house so they could be closer to them. We talking regularly. Dave is just fine. He fulfilled his life's dream and now he is moving on.

    What design is this?

    Ok, the last and first time I saw a Kaiser Gale Force was probably 1976, 44 years ago. But here is what I recall seeing. In short, there was no hull to deck joint as we think of them. The hull was laid up in a female mold and included bulwark and side deck integral with the hull laminate. You removed the "hull" from the mold and you had a boat with a deck and a big hole where the cabin trunk would be joined. A typical lap joint was applied at the junction of the side deck and the cabin side. lapping down onto the side deck. I could be wrong but it did leave an impression on me at the time. The four carbon cutters have no hull to deck joint at all. It's all one piece bonded with carbon inside and out.

    Very unusual hull to deck joint as I recall. I met Mr. Kaiser many years ago. Nice guy. I liked his boat.

    Steve: Yes, I have plenty of headroom in the engine room. I have not adjusted the joiner sections to the new length or profile but I will still get at least 6'9" headroom in the engine room.

    My 85' ketch is now 95' LOD. The extra 10 feet really helped.

    Skipper: I would not know where to start. There is nothing about that design I like. I do not like the hull shape for starters. That boat will not sail upwind at all. That boat will forever drag its transom. It would take some time for me to explain all the elements that I don't like in this design. I think you would be better off with a powerboat.
  13. I'm not sure I'd get along well with a boat owner who did not think of calling me first with a question like this. Zonks can advise him. He knows what he's talking about.

    The HPS is an awful design. There is nothing right about it.
