Good Day Forum.
I would appreciate if someone could answer a question regarding Tiki 46 ability to tack. Recently I sailed on one (being a prospective buyer) and I discovered that it would not tack without the help of a backsheeted genoa
was around 15-16 knots and the boat
itself had no problems sailing in this condition. From around 45 deg. onwards the speed was coming up to around 8.5 knots but that was not enough speed to get the boat
to tack without the backsheeted genoa
. According to the owners it does not tack by itself in any wind
Would please, experienced sailors comment on this?
Thanking you all in advance.
