- Jul 29, 2007What a great Tortoise! Pound for pound that has to be the best Bolger
design. I notice your elegant solution to the dagger board question.
This reminds me of memories of personal bliss last month, sailing my
Tortoise in Clear Lake State Park, near Soda Bay, CA. I was sailing
her in the brisk afternoon North wind, maybe 15-20kts, on a portion of
the lake with 5 miles of fetch. In conditions to get the adrenaline
pumping, pushing at hull speed through 1+ foot of swell. The bevel
of the Tortoise bow actually does a good job of floating the boat up
and over the swells.
