- I created a Folder in the Files section with the above title to save
any thoughts, ideas or modifications the group may be contemplating.
I also included a file with a compilation of Jim's newsletter articles
sharing the development of the design. It contains a lot of
information about the design but in addition the steps he goes through
when developing any sailboat design. Extremely useful in my opinion.
For example, depending on the amount of ballast and where you locate
it PB can theoretically self-right from a 180 degree knockdown and
even when lightly loaded from 110 degrees. Also the sail area can be
calculated in relationship to the ballast, to insure you don't go over
past 30 degrees.
