Two legged.Grith, seem to be not hearing what is being said to you.
if you had just been highlighting the advantages of trailer sailers in general or of your boat in particular, then I for one would not have been tough on you.
The problem is that instead of honestly describing the compromises, you have been busy making implausible claims about your boat's capabilties, phrased in weaselly terms reminiscent of a dodgy marketer.
Many CA regulars are highly experienced sailors. Several regulars are professional designers. Many others know how to assess the basic parameters of boat design, and see how factors such as SA/D, D/L, rig profile, stability, and wetted surface will impact performance.
There are places where you can get away with boosterism. This is not one of them.
I completely understand ultimate sailing efficiency dynamics for racing or long offshore passages where speed can be very important and weather conditions (on the nose for days) unavoidable.
Please explain why this should matter that much for inshore sailing/cruising between sheltered overnight or multi day hangouts where time sailing is usually limited to about 8 hours maximum and the next anchorage can usually be selected with wind direction and sea state conditions in mind.
I will personally will accept some slight loss of sailing performance/speed in some conditions for comfort and to be able to go over the fringing reef and access that sheltered, secluded white sandy beach or over the river mouth sandbar into the shallow lagoon.
I have often watched the keel boats anchored out bucking in the wind and waves whilst nosed up overnight right onto the beach.
It’s similar I feel to those selecting yachts with pilot houses and/or internal steering positions who sail in very cold and inclement northern locations.
Lots of friends have inshore/inland cruised for many years with a wide range of swing or retracting keel trailer sailers like Court 750’s and RL28’s and the like.
My yacht is just a similar but slightly different take on precisely these type of maxi sized trailable Yachts.
Why all the negativity?
Not so secluded bunch of said trailer sailers hanging out together.🙂
