An X-yacht may come close too. its time for bed where I am, so will leave you folks in the early part of tomorrow to worry about this. Oh, and how is tomorrow shaping up? Fuzy is probably the most through tomorrow than most of us......LOLOL

You know that I like Salona boats (particularly in what regards quality/price/performance) and the 33 is no exception. Probably it ill be faster than the Comet on light winds and will point better upwind. It will be worse as a solo boat and considerably less fast downwind, specially with lots of wind. It is a much more classical boat, a more narrow one and with a more traditional transom (that favors upwind sailing).

They say on the Comet 31 boat test that the boat will get good results racing in IRS but I doubt that the Salona 33 would be worse, specially in ORC.

Two very different boats, but both fast in their own way and both with a good cruising interior and an good price.
