Bit heavy at 22,800 but not terribly so. On the other hand 54% ballast.

Would be a great boat for the Caribbean or trucking.

Cool, it's about time they painted white center lines in the channel to keep the other guys out of my lane! And there seems to be great parking in this area!

Yep, but a ballast does not sail a boat. More ballast, more displacement, more SA, more work for the crew!

Very interesting boat. Doesn't look like she could sail well but then again who knows.

Some of those IOR boats were head scratchers allright.

PEARSON 40
It needs that much ballast since it has a small leaver arm to work with. If it was at the end of keel it would likely have the same righting moment with half the weight. Ballast to displacement ratios do not mean much unless this is taken into consideration. Interesting design though. I think boats with a centerboard should be made beachable to take full advantage of it.

Re: Nautical Oddities

What might these be? Spotted on Google Earth on the ICW south of Norfolk VA. I'm thinking pipleline pipe? Each one seems to be over 500 feet long.

Re: Nautical Oddities

We'll probably find it on craigs list pretty soon with a fresh paint/gel job.

I agree whole heartedly with the announcer, everyone should practice sailing off the rocks since it may one day happen to you and your motor won't work.
