The wetness of the Farrier-designs was one reason I decided against getting one myself. That and the fact that a dwarf would have trouble with the cabin on the F28, which doesn't have standing headroom for anyone over 4' 10" or so, except under the pop top near the companionway.

The folding system was one of the other reasons. Having to futz with bolts while locking down the amas didn't strike me as the best way to do things. The folding system on my trimaran doesn't require any tools and can be done with the boat underway, in about two minutes.

I've rigged the boat from having the mast down, boom removed and sails off to ready to sail in about 30 minutes with just one crew helping me.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
