AMF 2100 Imformation

I believe that the AMF 2100 was actually a hood design but I could be mistake. The 2100''s were AMF''s attempt to come out with a design that was bigger than their board boat line (such as the sunfish) and thier bigger Paceship (PY23 and PY26)line. The 2100''s were not terribly successful. AMF had opted to really try maximize space down below and so they had a lot of freeboard. I''ve only been aboard one at a raft up but she seemed a little tender. With a PHRF rating of 231 they are comparatively fast compared to earlier trailerables like the Catalina 22 but quite slow compared to later trailerables like the Ranger FUN or the Beneteau 210. These would not be boats that I would want to spend much time in 35-40 knot winds in and would expect it a 2100 to be a lot more than "a little over powered with the one reef" in anything much over 20 knots.
