I like the Nomad, but I just wish it had a trapeze. It seems similar to the Hunter 170, but more performance-based and also more expensive, but still lacking the trapeze.
The boat I'm trying to find is described in the section of the Vanguard Vector: "Modern double trapeze dinghies
have generally fallen into two camps: speedy and nimble but too challenging for all but the very elite sailors, or accommodating to a wide range of skills, yet too heavy and slow to be truly thrilling"
I'm basically trying to find these heavy and slow double trapeze boats that they speak of, since that seems to be what the Laser 2000 was!
