Re: Interesting Sailboats

Fair enough. But I still think it's great to see someone trying to update an old design and see how it does with modern materials and a modern implementation. It astounds me, though, that you're so against the modern square rigger, but you juxtapose it with the Meteor. If that is not anachronistic, I don't know else I'd call it - even if it is faster than the Maltese Falcon in the videos posted.

With that said, I'm seriously reconsidering buying a ("racing") trimaran instead of the boat I had settled on. The one you guys linked me to in that other thread was really nice, although not being able to buy it from new is a bummer. I simply think it would be even more fun, even though it will be a bitch to find a berth for.
I found it. It was in this thread, and it was you who posted about it - I'm rather smitten with it, the Krysalid 42:
