Re: Another Bolger lapstrake, Nord Coaster, 16 foot Cat Yawl
Having done essentially that very experiment, I'll take that bet. I'm willing to publicly put my money where my mouth is right here. I'll put up $100 right now on the DB boat beating the leeboard boat. Let's make it a best 4 out of 7 races to dampen out noise and get a more accurate sample size.
(And I'll bet another $50 that it doesn't take the whole series for the DB to come out on top!)
Who's up for it? We just need someone to step up and build a couple of otherwise similar boats. PD Racers? Goat Island Skiffs? Any takers?
Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
