Battle of the Blue Hulls




One of the things that I love about racing is we will do anything to gain any speed advantage. After all, we are using physics to fight the laws of physics.  However, this begs the question, 'does a blue hull make a boat faster?'

I have heard the drunken rant of a sailor spout how the heat absorption of a darker hull will allow it to react with the water molecules differently and therefore less friction through the water blah blah blah.  I am not sure I buy into that, but I do know they look mighty pretty and Maria Swearingen sure knows how to shoot them!  Thanks for the beautiful shots of Riva and Anam Cara!
