Re: At The Risk of Starting WWlll

"True natural sailing " the sport of going places while heeled at an unnatural angle, leading to unnatural chiropractic bills, and then bobbing around unnaturally at anchor or dock leading to unnatural sleep.
Hehe

Re: At The Risk of Starting WWlll

I do not understand what is wrong with sailing at unnatural angles. That is what I enjoy. The same with riding a motorcycle. Why not go round corners flat in a car instead? The same corner on a bike is fantastic and an experience out of the norm.

So, do we assume that those who want to sail "flat" just don't understand the sensation, or choose the more normal and boring in life? I know which I enjoy and I am 65, but not yet prepared to take the "sensible" choice in life. Long live the excitement.

Coops.

I do special rates for people with angle issues...... Im not promising I can fix it but think I can get your angle of dangle up a degree or two...... You may never get to Catamaran level but may achieve Bilge keeler........

Re: At The Risk of Starting WWlll

Started on a bilge keeler Weave. I have sailed on cats from 14' to 45' and still love the sensation of heeling over in a mono more. But flying a hull on an 18' hobie is still bloody good fun.

PS The angle of the dangle is more dangle than angle at my age.

I never raced yachts or cats. Not really an interest. I love the sensation of being heeled over in a strong steady. However after 10 hours the novelty wears off. Guess Im just a Catamaran man through and through.... or a bilge keeler if Im to do the mono bit.

Re: At The Risk of Starting WWlll

Bilge keelers do not heel less than normal keelers Weave. They just sit flat when the water disappears for whatever reason.

Ah, well, yes then. Bilge keeler motor boats are like cats. Fun factor is low though.

If it's unusual, I am usually liking it.
