- Jan 8, 2009You are obviously well informed and educated re.righting moment, hull speed,
and other mystical aspects of boat design. I only want to say that I spent a
delightful afternoon last summer with Harold Payson on his back porch last
summer discussing Bolger designs. One comment from Payson stays with me.
"Bolger has an uncanny understanding of what the underwater shape of a boat
should be." That remark alone is enough to prevent me mucking about with
anything below the waterline on any Bolger design. I have taken some
liberties with the top sides of several of his designs. None have proved
disastrous. But have I really improved anything? Who knows? Just thought I
should mention this. Good luck.
jeb, suspecting global warming is a very silly conspiracy theory, on the
frozen shores of the Bay of Fundy.
