Yes, sorry to be obscure on a Monday, but the point is only made half in just. When we moved from the 41' boat we'd lived aboard for eight years to our current 46' boat we berthed the two boats side-by-side and and moved everything one box at a time. By the end, the 41 had risen 3" on her waterline, while the 46 had only sunk an inch.

How about the crew lose weight. Less fat makes you sail faster and have more fun once at anchor
