I just bought one of those plastic Walker Bay boats you probably saw at a
boat show. In general, I like it: Light, rows well, roomy, and can't beat the
But I'm concerned about how well it will sail. It looks to me like the
daggerboard is aft of the center of effort of the sail, which would result in
lee-helm, which would result in not going to windward worth a damn.
So, before I pony up the $750CDN for the sail-kit, has anybody sailed one of
"Near Cove II" - Walker Bay 8 - anybody wanna buy a Sylray 9?
