Just ignore him. His mum re-connected internet to the basement and he's trying to stalk me again. He is the archetypal troll.

Re: Myth: Hull Speed

Planning does not take a lot of power. Getting on the plane does.

And displacement hulls (a.k.a. tubs) do not plane. They capsize.

This is the problem when people start sailing on retirement. Anyone who played with toy boats as a kid builds a set of observations.

C'mon.

But what if you're planning to get on a plane?

Planes that are planning to plane usually have lots of power.

Re: Myth: Hull Speed

Planes always do but they are working to a different principle. You stop you drop.

A planing boat is more like a convertible airship - it can go slow or stop. Except a surfing board, unless a longboard.

Upwind, it is an Air France plane, best.
