Re: [bolger] Re: Tortoise Question
- To Vince and all;
I had noted before that in a strong wind, the boat must be balanced not
only by moving your weight to the windward side, but also fore-and-aft as
well. It is possible to take some solid water over te bow if crew weight is
not moved back. However this only seems to be an issue in strong winds with
an unreefed sail.

Tortoise forward of midship. It is quite easy to depress a corner of the
bow below the surface and ship a few gallons of water before you have
time to scramble aft.
