Re: Raising Boot Stripe

Ian Townsend

We try to keep it light aft. We raised the stripe only an inch by putting the bottom paint up to the bottom edge of the boot stripe. And even though we have an arch and one solar panel, the boat sits well for us. And it’s still pretty 😀

Well each to his own, but I believe it is not a good idea to put lots of weight in the bow of a boat, or the stern, or both. The mass needs to be concentrated in the middle of the boat. Loading the bow just to make the boat float on it's waterline is not a very seaman like thing to do, in my opinion.
