Salad water

Post by goros »

all of you sailing in fresh water?

I always sail in salat water. Is the Trjan design to fresh water? there a difference?

my trojan has trouble staying the course with small swell

I will expand the area of the rudders

I think they are very small. what you think?

thanks,

Salt water ?? A lot of us our boats in salt water . However Trojans are not what I would call offshore boats . The f32 is known not to like following seas . Bigger rudders could help .

To gain handling stability on a following sea, the trim tabs should be up and the boat needs to be moving much faster than the waves chasing it. If not, the waves tend to push and lift the boat from behind making it hard to handle.

Hope this helps

That is an awesome platform!
