Davidpm - Awesome BFS! I see your point about the size of the boat and motion of the ocean. Kind of reminded me of Jody's story - heh, heh. Just kidding.

Anyway, I'm actually liking the idea of the Hobie. It does look like a hell of a lot of fun - in tandem with a bigger boat. And I think I'm going to recommend the "rocks in a backpack" pfd to some of the guys over in AFOC. What's the rating on that device anyway?

Finally, it appears that the C27 is just plain unsinkable. If all of us greenhorn sailors around the world can repeatedly take these things out in conditions we have no business being out in - then actually bring them home every time, there must be something to them - despite the knocks they get from salts. Must be that 9 feet of freeboard Charlie.

Catalinas ROCK you full keelers!!!!
