Well

The new J70 is proving to be a good bit faster for one with its 111 something rating

For the most part here older boats still get raced the J44 has a big group with deep pocket owners of course Rambler races here a lot also (the 90 is back in action)

Most of the expense in new boats is all the stuff now somehow needed that we did without on older boats like 50,000 dollar wind/navigation systems

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
