You are just jealous. You never shared your first bucket story. Was it a nice fresh flexible plastic one or a ridid stuck in its ways rusty ol metal bucket that rubbed your skin raw when you played with it?

Any pailientologist will tell you that man would never have reached this point in his development without his codependency on buckets!
The growth of the human race has been tremendously advanced by the bucketeering culture!

Just try to find some kind of advanced civilization that does not have some form of bucket!

And of course, bucketeers need a song!

I'm sorry. Are you having a bad day Mr. Grumpy Pants? I thought this thread could use a little levity given it's ridiculousness.

When a sailboat rocks from side to side it is called trawler training.

Yeah, of course there is. My comment was really aimed more at the OP evaluating boats on his own as I dont think most of those numbers are layman friendly or published in boat specs.. The pictures of boat crossections would hopefully help him to evaluate.

Re: What is it called when a boat leans side to side

As much as anything else, it's the frequency of the waves that's important.

If you see a flotilla of anchored or moored yachts where the breeze is from one direction and the waves coming from side-on, some will be rolling like crazy and others relatively steady.
On another occasion, in apparently similar circumstances, the roles may be reversed.

The difference will be that the distance between wavecrests (which governs the frequency of their encounter with a fixed object) has changed.

Each vessel will have a natural frequency of rolling, which can be discovered by heaving once on a rope attached to the mast, led out sideways, in flatwater conditions. The yacht will then do several rolls at its natural frequency.

If the waves are arriving from the side at that frequency (or a frequency which is a small even multiple, or divides evenly into the natural frequency) the rolling tendency will be greatly accentuated, increasing with each roll until a maximum is reached.

One way to alleviate this is to align the boat with the waves, possibly with a bridle. Another is to change the natural frequency, possibly by hauling something reasonably heavy up the rig. Like a child who persists in asking questions for reasons other than genuine curiosity.

Re: What is it called when a boat leans side to side

[QUOTE=chucklet321;1052851]What is the term used for a boat leaning side to side.

If you have a boat that leans from side to side it is faulty and you should buy another one called a house.

So has it been determined that this is a troll? Or someone who is seeking information?

The official word is that it is really a 13 yr old. But so what? Teenagers don't screw with folks? Since when? I'm guessing his dad is poster Scoobert.
