Cam, in europe we have a boat that I believe may have served as inspration to that, it's called the BIC. And it is a little more "racy"
see it here..
Fred sailed one for 2 days last summer, said it didn't sail that great.
I think that BUG may be better suited for learning kids..the Bic is harder for them
I thought Catalina was the Bic lighter of boats? Inexpensive, easy to find, but no good in the wind. And disposable.
