Nautica sostenibile - Paper8: la barca pieghevole a propulsione ibrida

We like to underline how Paper8 is an excellent row boat, her light weight and flat bottom allow her to gently glide on the water. This trait, extremely rare amoung the smaller sport boats , permits an extremely simple usage even if only occasionally without having to engage oneself in regular and expensive maintenance of the motore.
Using Paper 8 as a row boat the two side benches that close the well which is indispensibile when sailing with a sail or a motor become surplus (for an ulterior weight saving), as the rower can find himself seated comfortably on the stern bench (rowing forward) or on the central bench (rowing backward).

Naturally the low friction on water allows Paper 8 to be efficient even with a motor, that can be of inferior power with respect to all the other boats with equal capacity (400 kg or 880 pounds). This translates into several advantages: considerable savings on purchasing, on wear and tear, mantenance and usage of the motor and the undoubted utility of a riduced weight/encumbrance in trasport.

Certainly the best way to fully enjoy Paper8 remains that which favor her nobile nature and arm her with a sail: discovering how easy and how simple it is to sail appreciating only the sound of the wind and the sea that accompany you.
In fact Paper8 is a school boat, studied in every detail to put a person at ease so that each one can follow a modulated didactic course based on their own personal needs, deciding freely if they want to program a tranquil and relaxing outing at sunset or an adrenaline based raid in the company of friends competing for the apertive before lunch taking advantage of the strong breeze of the late morning.
In addition, thanks to two exclusive solutions: double disposition of the internal/external floating reservoirs anf riduction system of the sail, a solution never adopted by any other boat with these dimensions
Paper8 has become the ideal boat to ricuperate the right trim avoiding capsizing (an event that is free of physical dangers on a sail drift, but sometimes lived with a certain amount of stress by those who are novices) againt conduction errors and at the same time the most adequate means for older people or handicapped people, that can manage their own movements on board without having to necessarily execute the maneuvers with extreme swiftness.
Never forget though that Paper8 is a high performance boat, it adapts even to expert personnal: it is sufficient to place the reserves on the inside to find the original lines of the bottom of the Mirror, with all her superb capacity to hold the sea and to hold the wind. With this trim your Paper8 is free to express performances without limits, especially with a strong pace (with the stern, losco, and cross winds) in the place of the jib you will use the rollable gennaker armed on the bowsprit.
