Re: Interesting Sailboats

I'm liking the look/concept of the RMs more and more.. looks like a fun boat to own and sail.

I'm wondering if they are prone to pounding in a chop with those flat forward sections? Even more extreme than the flat sections on some IOR designs, which are known to pound quite badly...
