Re: Lee Boards Advantages
They open up the interior of the boat for cargo or people.
CB cases always wring and, eventually, leak.
CB cases silt up, and jam, with mud and stones.
The inside of a CB case is difficult to defoul and paint.
Leeboards can be shaped to provide positive 'lift'.
Lovely, 'salty', appearance.
That's an interesting observation. Does anyone care to proffer the merits of a foil-shaped leeboard versus a slab-shaped end-stopped foil like a DB or CB?
This new ship here is fitted according to the reported increase of knowledge among mankind. Namely, she is cumbered end to end with bells and trumpets and clocks and wires. It has been told to me she can call voices out of the air or the waters to con the ship while her crew sleep. But sleep though lightly. It has not yet been told to me that the sea has ceased to be the sea.--Rudyard Kipling
