I'm told by folk who have capsised RL28s that the water level won't let water enter the cabin.
Whilst one of my ambitions is to never be fully horizontal in my RL28 - boom hitting the water is the limit so far - I have two nagging thoughts. These are:
1) what efect will the movement of batteries and other kit (tools, torches, canned food, kitchenware etc) have on righting moments if they are on the roof of the cabin?
and 2) Hydraulic pressure lifts the centreboard, but what would the centreboard do if the boat inverts?
Any thoughts? And are there other scary thoughts I should consider?
p.s. My water tank for the galley seems to run out very quickly (say, 2 days of average use). Is this a commonly experienced situation?
