The wind is what causes a sailboat to sail.
Sailboat is to sail as kite is to fly, just as airplane is to wing and oil tanker is to engine.
he flooded his basement with water and sail the boat out to sea. what do you think?
A sailboat without a sail is but a hull of itself.
It is called the lateen sail.
Yes, sailboat is a compound word. (sail + boat = sailboat)
Collects wind, it is a triangular sail placed at the front of the sailboat.
Um.........you just said the answer. its called a sail
It is a part of the sail.
A sailboat can certainly be operating under sail at night. Sailboats use their sails when there is enough wind to carry them.
The weight of the sail boat is less than the weight of the water it displaces. That is its density is less than that of water.
A sailboat under sail is about to cross paths with a PWC. What action should be taken?
If a powerboat is about to cross paths with a sailboat under sail give way, the sail boat is the stand-on vessel, therefore you are the give-way vessel and need to move accordingly.
Speed up to pass in front of the sailboat
Do whatever is necessary to stay clear of the sailboat.
The vertical pole on a sailboat is called the mast, but at the bottom of the sail is horizontal pole called a boom. On the Tall Ships, the horizontal pole AT THE TOP of the sail is called the yardarm.
Making the sail area smaller is called reefing.
It is a mast
i know a triangular sail will go the fastest proven from histor and trial
== There are too many variables to give a short answer, but generally speaking... a sailboat has the right of way over a powered recreational vessel when the sailboat is operating under the sail's power only. In other words, even if the sail is up, if the sailboat's engine is running and the propeller is engaged, it is considered a powered vessel.
