That is my old boat! I believe that four boats had that modification. It definitely smooths out quarter wake.
The P26 already has some weather helm issues. Shortening the keel will not help that and if you reduce righting moment it will exacerbate the...
It is not a lifting keel. Basic early 80's vintage keel. This one stands out when compared to other boats. It's measured rating cert is...
It is not my boat the design is an old MORC design.
I posted this to try and figure a reason for the anomaly I found in one keel. Out of five other boats measured this one was 1-2" deeper. Most...
It would be at most ~30lbs of lead. Would it prove an advantage say off the line or tight boat to boat going upwind?
With all else being equal...what kind of gain would you expect if on a 30 OD keel boat you had a keel that was 1-2" deeper?
Thanks Joakim! That is exactly what I was looking for.
The base spec for the J29 from JBoats is 6000 lbs at a 5.6' draft and a 25' LWL.
I know what PPI is what I am looking for is the number specifically for a J29. All of them will have the same number.
I am trying understand how some boats can have larger displacements but shallower drafts and vice versa.
What I am trying to figure is that different 29s have differing displacements and drafts but they don't seem to correspond to each other....
Does anyone know what the pounds per inch immersion? Comparing different boats and trying to understand some of the differences.
I am trying to see if Burt Borges has been credited with any sailboat designs. He did the lines for my boat...
