2019[bolger] Re: modern Light Scooner
- Jan 26, 2000Greg,
Keep in mind I said "suppose to be faster," and this was based on several
things. First, in some of my communications with Tim (Tim correct me if my
memory is wrong) of the Light Schooner website, indicated that he reasoned
that the FS was suppose to be faster than the LS. This is not to disparrage
the LS which is a more subtancial boat in some ways, ie. able to dip a rail
without shipping great quantities of water as a result of the deck area, etc.
Further, I reasoned that (no doubt the weakest link) that with the longer
waterline, and lighter weight, the FS would have a speed advantage. Of
course, the LS isn't quite as likely to jackknife on you either. My FS will
be in sailing trim by spring and I would love to test out this hypothesis.
Are you planning to bring your LS to the San Francisco Bay any time?
Excited about AmericaOne's victory today,
