Flying Dutchman

Gary,
Don''t know much about FD but in the 80''s I purchased a Harken made,(Vanguard) Volant. It is 18 feet long and I was told that Harken used the FD mold and the difference was slightly less sail area and an ice box, suitable for sereral refreshemnts, in the foredeck.

I have sailed this boat, with my young family, for several years and have had a great deal of fun racing and crusing this boat. Harken no longer makes this unit, or any boat that I know about.
