Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Technical Mast head buoyancy Reply To: Mast head buoyancy


Going back through my summer photos I came across this one I took when I did the test above. Although she was unladen it is interesting to note how high the keel sits above the water. It does make the turning moment of buoyancy and mast obvious. It also explains why getting onto the centreboard, in order to right her, was so tricky and tiring.
