Hello all, The Skerry is a very nice little boat that sails ok but it is unfortunately impossible to right and bail after a capsize. I have made some tests today using various techniques and different bailers and I will have to significantly change my plans concerning the trips I intended to take with the craft. The problem is that a rigged Skerry, although relatively easy to right, is nearly impossible to keep leveled long enough to bail enough water and regain some stability. The boat when first put back up is just an inch or two above the water level and small waves are all it takes to void your bailing efforts, that is when you manage to keep the boat leveled while doing so. I made the tests when the water was very still and without any wind. In a real situation where wind and waves are expected to be kind of rough, it is virtually impossible to recover after a capsize. If I had known this before, I would have chosen a different design.
