  1. Would be shocked if they would have knowlegeable answers to those questions. I'd talk to the boat designer, and top sailmakers, and owners who've used both. But not the boatbuilder. I believe that even the best set up self tacker will sacrifice some absolute performance for the convenience. But if it makes the boat easier to sail shorthanded or singlehanded, or simply more crew-error proof, it might well be faster around a race course.
  2. Got a wild hair and built one a couple years ago. With experimental wingsail fitted (actually built for a landsailer) and while mocking up sail rig. (Rudder is too long, it was since shortened...)
  3. It rusts, expands, and cracks the epoxy. For that matter, that much resin is generally brittle and shatters on impacts. Scary. A floating swimming pool... The bottom growth is probably protecting it from much worse.

    There was a loser who couldn't get a date. He went to a bar and asked this one guy how to get a date. The guy said, "It's simple. I just say, I'm a lawyer." So the guy went up to a pretty woman and asked her out. After she said no, he told her that it was probably a good thing because he had a case early in the morning. She said, "Oh!!!!

    After the Great Britain Beer Festival in London, all the brewery presidents decided to go out for a beer. The guy from Corona sits down and says, "Hey Senor, I would like the world's best beer, a Corona." The bartender dusts off a bottle from the shelf and gives it to him. The guy from Budweiser says, "I'd like the best beer in the world, give me 'The King Of Beers', a Budweiser." The bartender gives him one. The guy from Coors says, "I'd like the only beer made with Rocky Mountain spring water, give me a Coors." He gets it. The guy from Guinness sits down and says, "Give me a Coke." T

    Superman was standing on the roof of the tallest building in Gotham, surveying the city with his super vision. Down on the roof of another building he sees Wonder Woman sunbathing nude! He tries not to look, upholder of the morals and all, but he just can't help staring. She's just laying there on her back with her legs spread! Pretty soon he can't stand it and he gets this idea: I can swoop down there with my super speed, get a little, and swoop away so fast no one will know it was me. So he zooms down, hump hump hump hump, and zooms away in flash. "What the hell was THAT?" yells Wonder W
