Thanks, Jeff. I''ve seen the Surrender on the hard and I did like her aft cabin and open aft deck, though she does seem cramped for her size.
I just assumed that her narrow beam would make her a little faster than other 42s and her high ballast/displ ratio and hard chine would help make up for her narrow beam.
And, although Gazelles have the reputation for being quite seawothy, I really didn''t want to investigate the fabled sailhandling superiority of the junk lug sail over the standard marconi sloop rig.
Thanks for your comments.
