In Topic: Reducing weather helm when plaining

29 August 2014 - 01:00 PM

As has been said, flat boat is only thing that matters!  helm is a function of heel.
 
  if you've seen high wind sport boats planing downwind, many times the crew will be hiking on the aft weather rail full on, just like they were beating...

and for god's sake don't overbake the kite, you're better to let it break a few times on a run, bare off, flatten out and re sheet then over bake it!

Not fakery...

 this one really hit home.  I've spent most of my life summer vaca's at this beach and water...  Never would have thought this beauty was just off shore.

Why wouldn't you? Given that there were seals around the cape 50 years ago, why wouldn't they be here too?

 

  Like i said, been to dux beach pretty much all my life, which is coming on 50 soon.  Well aware of the activity out on the cape, but have never seen or heard of seeing any seal/shark/ gwhite at dux beach or the bay in all that time.  When there we're on or in the water pretty much every day...
