I can see my tombstone:
Here lies Bob Perry.
He never sailed a Folkboat.

What? You're kidding, right??

Better quit stallin' and get out there, Bob. They really are great boats to sail.

Preferring carvel myself, I was seriously looking at a couple of IF's over here but then the opportunity cropped up to buy my boat for not much more dough (bigger, roomier, a bit less tender - ie. nicer for Mrs H), otherwise I'd own one myself right now.
