In the same post are you actually saying "I wouldn't be trying for maximum depth in survival conditions" and also saying you'd be flying a hull in the same conditions???

Are you trying to argue for sport here or something?

My post is saying everything you said earlier was true and the loss of performance is quite negligible.

Further, there are no endplates on dagger boards, so you're probably confusing a couple different things here. If you are thinking the hull itself is an endplate and that it prevents flow from the high pressure sideof the foil to the low pressure side, you're way off in your picture of how end plates work. They are added to the TIP of a foil to prevent high pressure fluid from sneaking around to the low pressure side around the tip. Surely you can't be saying high pressure fluid is sneaking around the board by leaving the surface of the water when you are flying the hull in your survival conditions scenario.
Sorry to offend.

Your prior post was a little confusing and sounded like it was implying no loss of grip if the windward hull came out of the water but most of the board was still in the water with the board fully extended during survival conditions...there definitely is a distinct loss of lift once the hull breaks free of the surface.

Also on the Yahoo Gemini group, there are several members putting out "rumors" of the ocean crossings they have done. I know at least a couple have made it to Hawaii and a few Atlantic crossings.

There was also a couple that did Cape Horne...for a while their pictures were used in the advertising for the boats..
Thanks for that, I was not aware of the Slapdash trip, quite impressive, I would to read up more on this. I have been a member of the yahoo group for about 5 years but must have missed any discussion on this. I think the 14ft beam of all Gemini models is the main reason for their popularity above all else and as you and others have pointed out, they suffer far fewer limitations than most multihulls as to where they can go. Btw, do you know of any other Geminis that have circumnavigated?

I guess that's a little unkind, but it's nicer than calling Jaime a bloke. It was a couple on Slapdash (guy and a girl).
