      Being a person with little faith when it comes to fluid dynamics, I sure
      would like to have you sail it before and after the fix.

      When the boat heels, it becomes quite asymmetrical. Some boats can be
      steered by heel and fore-and-aft trim. You might not notice the difference,
      particularly if your paint scheme made it unobtrusive on the trailer.
