VG 26 Brazil

Post by betogurgel » Wed Jun 12, 2013 5:23 pm

Dear Mr. Jacques and forum members;

Is it possible to remove the centerboard trunk on VG 26 or built it by the half of the high to have a lower draft?
Could I add more ballast around the table on the boat floor to compensate it?
The intention is to have a draft close to .50m (50 cm)!

Regards;

Gurgel

Hello my friend. The designer may be away. We would usually get an answer by now.

I was on vacation.
Draft with CB up is 76 cm.

You will not reduce that with a smaller centerboard. To reduce draft you would have to cu the keel: no a good idea.
No, sorry, 76 cm is what I recommend.
