trying to turn the boat. I'm curious as to why not. Good sense?
Does anyone have any idea what the concept or execution was behing the
"anti-trip" chines on Hickman sea-sleds? Bolger is on record that he thinks
Hickman squandered his talents with his concentration on this type. Hickman's
"sea-sleds" were anything but flat-bottomed, at least in their mature
configuration, but remarks in the literature suggest that they might have had
an unfortunate tendency to "trip" without the prophylatic chines.
