Thread: Bow bumpers?

  1. #1

    Default Bow bumpers?

    I know this may have been asked before, but has there ever been a consideration of having the use of a Bow bumper allowed in the class rules?

    Default Re: Bow bumpers?

    As you can see the Class Rules do not allow bow bumpers. There has been discussion of this option several times but there has never been a formal Motion to allow them proposed in the Biennial Class ballot.
    I am personally aware of only one instance where a SeaWind was holed in a collision and in that case it was clear that the holed boat had become severely embrittled by prolonged sun exposure and a bow bumper would likely not have saved it.

    Thanks for the reply. I thought it may have been discussed and has not read anywhere what may have been the opinions.
