open seacomfort

A wider/ more round bow = pleasant ride on open sea/ocean ?!
vs.
narrow/ more sharpish bow = Pleasant?!
Also... More easy to sail/manouver in different conditions (storm to calm)

Thinking Longdistance sailing and very longtime at sea.

Been sailing for many years, but NEVER on open oceans, (just in my dreams!)
Would like to hear your oppinion...

Round bows went out with the Spanish galleons. They don't sail well at all. I like moderate shapes like the cruiser racers of the late 50s early 60s for a balance between performance and confort. If I have a choice, it would be a catamaran though.

Hi Gonzo and thanks for answer. I wanted to know about seacomfort! personally I don't like those fast going, surfing kind of sailboats. Why be in a hurry in a sailboat, Not logical at all!!! Heavy displacemnet boats like C.Archer's is what I calll proper ships/boats...
(I Found a tread on this forum about sea comfort)

Gonzo...he...he (they probably trow me out of here...ha...ha...ha)
"the Spanish galleons. They don't sail well at all" Maybe so... But many times around the world and still do...

They went downwind and had a great percentage of losses at sea.
