I was re-reading my post (yeah, I know, narcissistic of me) and realized the mumbo jumbo about the need for the Dehler 38's T-bulb is unclear. The point being:

  • A T-bulb keeps the ballast weight aligned with the position of the keel.
You mean my trapezoidal fin goes out of alignment with the ballast? :rolleyes:

It's a Hunter, of course it does. I'm surprised it's still attached. :)

Sloop, you may be yanking my chain, but I'll respond as if you are being serious:

The trapezoidal fin's ballast's longitudinal center of gravity is fairly close to the center of it's plan form.

A T-bulb's longitudinal c.g. is going to be fairly close to the center of the plan form of the fin to which it is attached.

The L-bulb's longitudinal. c.g. is going to be considerably aft of the fin's plan form center.

There. It only took me three times to say it clearly. :unsure:
