KEEL VERSUS CENTREBOARD
a sassi sa? Vsshiesses Uoiieve in th?
llt.ri.lv < eiitrabomd.
By hi* oomparlaona of Itaal with centre?
board yacht.* Naval-Architect Brown has
stirred up some of the yachtamea of New
York. Frankly? Baasford, the marta? ar?
tist, baa undertaken t.> champion their
cm-?", and thi* l.-> What hi baa to say:
In a recently-published Interview Mr.
Alfred 11. Brown, an Knglish naval arcfat
?.>?.*: "Your centreboard i~ ail very
WeU for racing, but I can't BM the
ty of it in a pleasure craft It take* up
t.inch room for one thing, spoils the
cabin accommodation and I* altogether an
unwleldly ani ungraceful contrivance. I
am a believer In the ked bu' foi ? ro?
tori, safety, nnd all needful speed." Mr.
Drown is evidently ot.lv acquainted with
th?? centreboardert of tbe paal an ? ?
the present decade, No ceotreboard has
been built In recent yenrs of over I?"? feet
load line in whi<h th- cabin accommoda
tion.? were spoiled? the modern centre?
board doe* not rise aboye th?? cabin floor
and I* altogether Invisible without or
within, and consequently cannot impair
in the slightest degree t!:?? appearance of
the ves???!. Ai to Its use*, it has n.itiy
that Mr. Itrown must be quite unfamiliar
with, ami which fiTi by BO mean? con?
fined to racing craft Even though but a
' cruiser, it enables h'T ? hold on to wlnd
! ward, and when night Is approaching
! With the weather unpromising and the
harbor still eight or ten tulles off, few
American yachtsmen Car? to beat for It
with the keels -..hen a good centreboard
could lay her COOTS? the entire w.iy.
And the above i? no uncommon Incident
lu cruising tin; bound, as hundred* will
verify; again, the majority of really (food
land-locked harbors abound with devious
passages, and as ;i summer breeze has a
fashion of "drawing In," nine times out of
ten you're on the wind In getting out, nnd
it Is, Indeed, a material matter whether I
you must tack in a narrow channel off
can clear the point of land ahead I", j
the one case you may go aground and |
stay six or more hour* to th?? n-\t title,
which wouldn't be agreeable even to Mr.
Drown. In fact, examples of the centre
board'* advantage? even to a cruising
craft, are endless, as every keel man here
has seen to bis sorrow times without
number, even If he dOBBB't acknowledge
It. an especially valuable fact for Mr.
Drown to digest before condemning a ? >n
trlvance which for many year* has and :
will be the mainstay and distinctive fen? :
ture of our American yachts. I would I
also take Issue on his peroration -"? ??-- ?
Uever In the keel boat for comfort, safe- |
ty, and all needful spe-d." ivrsonally f |
have never had any comfort OB a k?.-l ?
yacht, which Is always narr?jwer than the i
centreboarder; consequently crameed for !
room below and on deck, take* anything
but comfortable heels when sailing any ;
way except "dea?l before It," and even
then rolls continually, while her great
fixed draught forces you to anchor beyond
hall of the shore six night* In the week.
We know that what we consider annoy?
ances many Englishmen positively ad?
mire; we know that they dont mind sail?
ing on edge, thoroughly enjoying a com?
plete ducking, are absolutely fond of
sailing after dark in strange waters even,
aa they are never so much at home as
when In an impenetrable fog, but then
we cannot all be Englishmen, and It Is
equally true that Americans are not able
to fully appreciate such amusements. We
also admit that tAe other extreme Ima
many disadvantages, and we no longer
build the unsafe "sklmmlng-dlsh," but
give all our present centreboards ample
draft for safety and carry sail on them
In perfect security w's.rt the best keels
ever produced, while for "all needful
apeed" every man who sails the seae,
be It In yacht or working boat, wants to
sail faster than his frfends all day and
every day, and la never aatlafled, in thla
country at least, unless he can do It,
ami the modern centreboard "does the
trick." Mr. Brown Is evidently hedging
when he aays he believes the Vigilant
will win and then falls back on the claim
that ehe ought to, and U'a quite a almple
matter (In his Belief) to build a boat so
much lighter than a "ompetltor who must
cross the ocean. Now, on the contrary, I
venture the opinion that there Is com
paritlveiy little difference In the weight In
construction between the Vigilant and
Valkyrie; the latter, having the greater
draft may or may not weigh more a.? to
hull. In any event I feel perfectly eafe
in saying that after the cup matter Is set?
tled the Vtgllant will cheerfuUy enter an?
other match. If desired, for as many mile?
at sea as ths Valkyrie will care to earry her
racing gig. The matter of croeekng the
oeean with aa enormously-reduced sail
plan does not by any means eataM the
necessity of tremendous weight In con?
struction, nor even that a particularly
ah*? deeign should be built. Navahoe.
which le considered an oveeaparred and
"tenrhw" yacht crossed In about one half
the tima It took Valkyrie, and bad many

tha Busartor snip in all weathar, aad ?the
weight of opinion here and abroad has
already strongly Indicate! a belief that the
American Cup will not be seen In Kng

There la no doubt that we have learned
