Hi All
Just a question that probability has been done over and over.
in regrades to boats with full bow volume .
is this a benefit and just because i am thinking out cutting up my boat 1831 to try to achieve more bow volume like the fay style or would it be more beneficial to go to the extreme of the class rules.
and due to my boat being a Boyer molded boat would rocker have any thing to do with it .
sorry for asking these questions as i would like some help on this because i just don't know.

Hi Brett, is this what you were talking about doing.
This is a tornado but this bloke makes it look fairly easy to do, maybe I just read fast. Alan

Hi Brett, it's a combination of fullness and rocker, don't know of any Mossies that have been cut to make fuller shape more rocker. It's not something I would try, remember some sailors on Boyers still beat many sailors on newer hulls. Speed in a straight line is much the same it's only the faster steering that makes the difference around the course, faster tacks, gybes and buoy roundings. When it comes down to it, experience and practice makes the most difference, he who makes the least mistakes wins.


Regards Gary.

I personally owned a minimum weight Boyer and now own one of the oldest Fay boats.
For lightweight cat rig sailors I think the Boyer is about even but the majority still have older style centre boards and rudders which let them down.
By the time you factor in upgrades it makes more sense to get a winning boat like the "Young Mariner" which will still be worth the purchase price if you ever decide to sell.
I usually find rear beam slap slows you down and increasing bow volume in a Boyer could potentially make this worse and give you a slower boat..
Anyway just an opinion

The plan was simple.... Like my brother in law Phil, except this plan just might work!
