Hull Design

Postby resonus » Mon September 18th, 2006, 10:39 am

Hi,

I'm in the process of seriously looking to buy a Golden Hind 31. However, I have very limited experience of shoal draft hull desgins and have a couple of questions.

How does a Golden Hind 31 perform to windward?
What would one expect to achieve as a cruising speed?

I am looking to do some long distance cruising and this boat seems to tick all the boxes for me except for my lack of understanding in this area.

Any help will be gratefully received.

Lee.

GH to Windward?

I think I have already spoken to Lee, so how about some of the GH owners giving their opinions?

I know our boats will never be great performers, when put up against a fin keel boat, but I think the GH or a modern Eventide, (with the deeper, heavier keel) hold their own against most cruising boats.
