Re: Any Ovni Owners / Sailors Out There ?

Hi,
One year later this post, I come to give my "little" advice.
I am a french sailor and just bought an Ovni 365.
last year, I hired this boat for a 3 weeks test trip and this made me sure that it was THE boat I need as I will go both in Artic and Antartic areas.
Just to remind one very important thing about AVS.
The first point is the ship owner, not the ship herself. How will be manage a really bad weather condition?
The second point is that capsizing is never due to the wind force but to the waves force. And with a centerboard up, you have really less chance to capsize in such condition.
Now, what happens if you are capsizing? Your ship will be in an unstable position, exactly in the same way as a non centerboard ship due to the balasts in the hull. And she will recover in the same way as the kill is just 150 kg so quite null regarding the 3.5 tons of the balast.

It was just an advice. Sorry for my english, I work for an US company since a while but this is not enough to be so fluent...

My best
Christian

Re: Any Ovni Owners / Sailors Out There ?

CCO - i think you might be posting this in the wrong thread. There is another one here on AVS and Ovni which discussed this. I also thought the centerboard up tactic works based on other Ovni owners I have spoken too online, but some people feel other wise. Please post your response under:

Ovni AVS?

Re: Any Ovni Owners / Sailors Out There ?

Hi
I am interested in an OVNI 33 that is for sale and would like to hear from anyone who has personal experience of this particular model. I intend to use it on the east coast of Australia and into the pacific islands. It is a lot cheaper than other ovni yachts I have seen which actually brings it into an affordable range. It would be my first yacht and having "no". draft would offer lots of advantages.
