bullseye is on a distinguished road
can i run some figures past you

hi,
im thinking of buying a 25ft yacht(circa 1975-1985), which is called a Top Hat(in australia), designed by illingworth & primrose(UK),fibreglass,long keel, intended use is short-hop coastal cruising(1,2 or 4 day passages)single-handed or short crewed.
im guessing not many have heard of this particular design,so heres a few figures,any thoughts about this boat for my intended use would be very helpful,

LOA 7.6M(25ft)


LWL 6.2M(20ft 4in)


beam 2.4M(7ft 10in)


draft 1.3M(4ft 3in)


displacement 2.58T(5700lbs)


lead ballast 1234kg(2720lbs)


sail area 49sqM(530 sqFeet)


ballast ratio? 48 per cent

theres a layout plan in the pictures at http://groups.msn.com/tophatyachts

cheers
