Re: [bolger] Re: Small Craft Advisor Issue #42
- Jamie some of the changes to the boat was a fwd stand
up wheelhouse and a lower aft cabin. They also say 5
to 10 HP outboard for power.
You also have to remember they are useing the hull as
a powerboat, not sail. So it will have more windage
and you could well be right 10 Hp may be to much. But
who knows! First they would have to get the drawing
done and then have someone build one and see how well
she runs and what trim changes need to made.
Oh Jamie you are also in print as well as an Owner's
Review. Hey you have hit the big time....Just don't
give up your day job. (I'm just being funny)

- Thanks for the pic Greg.
Sorry to hear your sailing time was cut short (*~*), but it is good to
hear just how easy you now find that trailer retreival/launch
method :-). Better luck at Easter then.

- Yes Graeme,
Actually I can't now see why I thought the whole thing was such a
t0-do?? Anyway, it really is much easier than I had decided that it
was...beats me where that came from, but maybe just the imagining
rather than the actual doing.
What it basically means though, is, that now we should be more
prepared to put the boat in the water on the odd weekend rather than
waiting till we are there for longer
