She looks gorgeous Bigr, and I can well imagine she'd be comfortable in a big sea
yeah she was heavy, built for IMS , my dad had to build a fast boat , yet comfy enough for weekend trips to local islands . it had every ammenity available at the time . i think the fastest we ever went was on this race and it was 22-24 knots with full main and #3 broad reaching in the overnight offshore from baja. doesnt sound fast by todays standards, but that pig at that speed felt damn near out of control !She looks gorgeous Bigr, and I can well imagine she'd be comfortable in a big sea
I'm jealous you bastard. Love the three sail setup all off the masthead, that's different!
just jaded with the VOR and canting boats i guess. we were all clipped on , only time in my life i was. oh and the mast and hull make weird noises at those speeds. some creepy humming for sure.That's fast, even by today's standards.
I doubt many people here - or anywhere for that matter - have ever gone more than 20 knots under sail.
Or anywhere near it.
