How To Build a Manu Sail Boat Plans

HAVE you ever sailed in a planing type sailboat? If you haven't you have a real thrill awaiting you. The difference between sailing a planing type sailboat and the conventional displacement type sail boat is about the same as chugging along in an outboard powered, displacement type row boat as compared to breezing along in an out-board planing type runabout. It's a remarkable experience to actually feel the hull of a planing sailboat rise and go skimming across the surface of the water at 18 to 30 mph! That's faster than the American Cup Defenders will do, which, of course, are long sleek displacement type sailboats.
