excel is on a distinguished road
26m

My biggest complaint is the flimsy daggerboard. Don't hit anything. It's easy to pull out and fix or replace but it really needs to be strengthened. The boat isn't real fast under sail but it's OK and points fine. As with any water ballasted boat it can get overpowered easy so be ready to reef.

Some good things: lot's of room inside and good headroom. Very easy to trailer; dumping the water ballast really lightens things up. Setup and teardown are pretty easy. We've usually get it in the water in about 70 minutes. Of course being a power sailor you can always get places fast if you want to and have a big enough motor.
