BTW: We get hurricanes here in Virginia which kick up some good sized seas.
Guess you ain´t been to the Baltic as you´d run aground there easily, or you didn´t wont to start a conflict
Me prefer powerboats with a family but when I like to go heavy stuff I prefer our baltic fallstorm with either a powerboat or a sailboat..doesn´t matter as long as the sky is grey and the sea is white...

bytheway the pic of North Sea looks perfect for some wavecrushing....now who would like to build me a Deep Vee ?

Here´s my home waters at the conditions I prefer...but not my family.
As you can see the waves are "choppy" and boatcrushing.



and if you want to visit..check this.
Good holiday spots

The Baltic SEA? I would suggest you are very young or just very naive. Where we boat, NC and Va. the area has some of the most trecherous waters in the world. Va. alone has over 500 shipwrecks in the bay and of the coast and North Carolina?

"The waters off the North Carolina's Outer Banks are so hazardous that they have earned the name "Graveyard of the Atlantic," in reference to all the ships that have found a permanent home on the sandy bottom."

It's well known information here so the insurance boys already know. But thanks for the heads up.

Yeah, I know the feeling (you seen the latest US rant about that fkkn video)

But this is a good thread, and it's a shame to mess it up with nonsense.

The first Fountain and Garbrecht (circa 1979) boat was originally an Excalibur 31 which was modified with a pad keel and notched transom (ala Steve Stepp's Velocity from one year earlier). Stepp incorporated the notched transom and pad keel from the Allison boats that he had raced earlier in his career.

My Chris Craft 311 Scorpion is also an Excalibur 31 hull. Strangely, Chris Craft credits Jean Claude Simon who is responsible for the Cobra and Coyote hulls as the designer.

As you have said, there are really very few original ideas or designs.

Quite right, little is new, or original. and interestingly, the Cougar US1-46, of early 80's fame ('Maggies Mercruiser Special') had both those features (pad keel, notch transom) obviously very 'in vogue'.

Comparing a sea to the Atlantic Ocean...
So you regard Atlantic as only yours...you might find even the Finnish coast to having more wrecks than the whole US coastline including every Canoe, LOL.

Well Baltic has most found shipwrecks of any water...over 100000.


And the first find is from 6th millenium BC, found in Finland.
Wreck info
Some More
*You don´t have to inform me of the Graveyard of the Atlantic which carries only 2000 wrecks.


Think end of off-topic discussion now, agreed?

Well look at the Resemblance of a 415 CC Stinger vs. A Baja 420 ES.

hmmmm what others?

Smuggler boats had a 24 raceboat with a pad from the early 70´s
Also some Finnish hulls have had them at the same time.

Stepped houlls have been around since the 1920´s as my firend has a wooden raceboat with surface drive and stepped bottom.
Shoulkd get a pic of it and post it somewhere...the boat looks more than weird...

I have asked on the american forums about splashes and have had little info but some good hints.

The Baltic has more wrecks due to populace over time not because it's more trecherous. The wrecks off the coast are almost all in the last two centuries, not from the 6th millenium bc. which at the time were basically "canoes".

Ocean- (a) : the whole body of salt water that covers nearly three fourths of the surface of the globe (b) : any of the large bodies of water (as the Atlantic Ocean) into which the great ocean is divided.

Sea- a body of salt water of second rank more or less landlocked.


Comparing the Baltic Sea to the Atlantic Ocean is a joke.

I agree. But for some reason Mikey believes the sea is more hostile than an ocean. A basic oceanography course would help the lad.
