      FWIW:  IMHO the daggerboard provides zero hydro-dynamic lift. The DB provides only lateral resistance.  The fact that Davo is one of the fastest Wetas sailors on the water is the reason his main hull lifts and skims. It is a combo of perfect trim: sails, hulls fore and aft, heal.

      But, if Davo believes his DB is providing hydro-dynamic lift...more power to him, it seems to be working.
