Seller's Description

Bay Hen 21 sailboat for sale Draft: 8 or 9” Selling our family Bay Hen 21. This is the single centerboard model. She has taken us on many grand adventures from Lake Vermilion, MN to Pavilion Key in the Florida Everglades. Sad to see her go, but we are upgrading to a bigger cat boat.

I have a 6HP yamaha outboard motor (not pictured) that will be included at the right price.

Included: Full set of cabin and cockpit cushions in great condition Anchor Manual bilge pump

Maintenance since purchasing: Ronstan double shackle bearing block - 2021 Viadana double ball bearing block - 2021 D-Shackles - 2021 Removed and re-bedded handrails - 2022 Sanded and refinished all wood - 2022 Latches added on companionway and cockpit seats - 2022 Tiller Clutch - 2021 Home-made companionway bug screen insert - 2022 New Trailer wheels - 2022 New Hubs - 2022 LED Trailer lights - 2021 Fishing rod holders - 2022 Extra Cleats - 2023 Wax/Polish twice a year With a draft of only 9”, the Bay Hen is a gunkholer’s delight. Her long chine lets her sail in as little as 12” of water; She’ll go windward in 18”. Her small cuddy is completely open on the inside with a lot of storage space for personal gear, ground tackle, bedding, galley stuff, and provisions. The bay hen is easily singlehanded. Her single sail is controlled by a sheet led to a cleat on the tiller. The motor well is handy and efficient. The well is designed to allow mounting of a standard shaft outboard motor. With an all up weight of under 1000lbs, the Bay Hen is easily trailered and launched. One person can step the unstayed mast in it’s tabernacle. The total time normally spent at the ramp launching, rigging, and setting sail is usually under 10 minutes (this time does not, of course, include time spent chatting with admirers of your Bay Hen). or phone 802-483-4560

Calculations

Hull Speed
9.0 kn
Classic: 5.4 kn

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Formula

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

8.97 knots
Classic formula: 5.4 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
33.0
>20: high performance

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

Formula

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
33.04
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
?

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Formula

Ballast / Displacement * 100

?
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
67.8
<100: Ultralight

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

Formula

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
67.79
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
5.2
<20: lightweight racing boat

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Formula

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
5.23
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
2.9
>2.0: better suited for coastal cruising

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

Formula

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
2.89
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
