Re: Why a racer for cruising discussion...
Always liked Vindos. Beautiful inside and at 50' you can play catch inside. Seems everyone ( maybe even Paulo) has come to the same place. There are advantages and disadvantages to all designs. Extreme designs do extreme things extremely better. Moderate designs may serve "real life" better for many of us. As design and technology advances real meaningful advance occurs. My boat addresses the issues Bob speaks to intelligently, elegantly and makes use of our understanding of the physics of sailing. It's right for the bride and me. I won't be bullied into thinking otherwise.
