Ok got my new IOM, a wooden Goth XP built by a friend - it is very rigid and light - I have built the top and medium rigs and installed the electrics so all the weights are now in position. I now need to find the right bulb position on the keel fin.
I have been struggling to find time to bring my boat to the sea to do a flotation test. So I am looking for an alternative solution to find out the right position of the bulb so the boat floats on its line.
using an arrow shaft I have found the CG of the bulb. Now what are my options?
Should I remove the keel and roll the boat fully rigged up on the same arrow to find it’s CG and attach the bulb so the 2 CG align?
any other solution?
thank you for your help.
