Wauquiez Arch

Not a big fan of arches, but it aesthically seems to work on the Wauquiez. With respect to stoutness of the arch vs Hunter, these are boats are of a radically different build quality( vacuum infused cored construction, etc.). The Hunter is mass produced and although they claim to be bluewater capable, I'd have significant reservations about doing so with a Hunter (BTW I'm a former Hunter 376 owner ). The Wauquiez is a higher end builder that produces a handful of boats annually. They have a strong reputation on build and their boats regularly found in bluewater conditions.
