Steading Sails / Get home propulsion

A*picture of the Dorothy June, 58 ft Roughwater.** With the sails only they could make 3 to 5 knots.* When out in open water they motored and sail at the same time.* They installed fish stabilizers which had to be used when the sails where up. *The last I heard she was in thePanamaarea.* That was 2+ years ago.*****

Unless you are planning on doing long range coastal and/or crossing oceans it would be hard to justify the cost vs. the benefit.***
