    Foils in water don't create lift?

    I studied aero in school but still have a hard time reconciling variable pressure with constant density. It just doesn't make sense intuitively. An understandable misunderstanding in my book.

    Cool As Shit Little Known One Designs

    What are those sportboat-lookin box rule boats they sail on lakes and rivers in Germany? I think they're usually wooden construction but the designs are modern. Anybody got any clue what I'm talking about?

    Help me rename my boat (or just tune in to mock my poor taste)

    My granddad had a red boat called Wild Cherry. If I had a fast red boat, I'd call it Hot Rod. What about Big Red?

    Institute for Nautical Folly

    Some argue that their commercial success or classification as a work boat disqualifies them from consideration. Personally I disagree with this preoccupation with definitions and rules. Folly is folly, you know it when you see it, and these operators are clearly masters of the form.

    Southeast US dinghy camping

    A recent turn of events has rendered me a gentleman of leisure for the time being. I'm thinking about taking a camping trip on my laser. Certainly not the ideal boat for a camping trip, but its the one I've got. I'm envisioning a 3-5 day trip where I can explore a little bit and sail to a...

    Murphy's 5 Laws of Topcoat

    My dad and I once spent two days wet sanding and polishing my opti, regatta that weekend. Pulling my boat up a hill after the first day of racing, it slides off the dolly and onto the gravel path. I was inconsolable for a time afterwards.

    Ok shoot, what is wrong with this boat?

    Why don't we talk about that JPK instead of the silly lake boat? Can anyone find a good picture of the cockpit layout?
