Re: Interesting Sailboats

That one is interesting... very round sections - and no chine - compared to many of the newer offerings. Almost makes Jeff's 'floating cone' analogy from the other thread more relevant

Interesting too that the keel fin is an integral part of the structure.. is that aluminum too? or is it stiffened internally? No keel bolts to worry about here!!
