Re: Why a racer for cruising discussion...

Boy Brent, you sure do make some broad generalizations. They are not all accurate. My ICON with a big wide stern and a very fine entry tracks like it is on rails and is a very benign boat to drive. By the way ICON was designed as a racer/cruiser and had succesfully cruised all over the Pacific from New Zealand to Seattle. It has a very deep, 13'8" draft lifting keel. It is not your Grandpa's cruising boat but it is a boat that has done a lot of cruising.

Any race boat with "knee high lifelines" would nort qualify for any of the races around here or pretty much abywhere in the world for that matter. There are very strict International regulations for lifelines and pulpits.
