Re: Why a racer for cruising discussion...

Um Brian........you do not need a 40' boat for all that stuff, try maybe 40METERS! so you are about 100M short on boat, get a longer bigger boat, and you can carry all that sheet and then a bit more, and still have reasonable performance.....

THEN, you can get one of the lifting keel thingymabobs, that will allow you into those shallow draft harbors, along with dropping it off shore some so you have some performance!

THere you have whatyou need to do to solve ALL you problems! just get one of them metric style boats, all is solved!

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
