I write a newsletter for a sailing club I'm in and occasionally feature boat reviews or design notes for new boats to our fleet. Since I'm not a Navel Architect and I have no particular qualifications other than an interest in how designs interact with wind and water, I sometimes have trouble getting info on boats I want to review. I hope this forum will be a help. This winter I would like to develop articles on the Knickerbocker 23(?), Hobie 33 (Fixed Keel), E-33 (Its new), and maybe another. I can use the articles during the summer so I'm out on the boat and not at home writing. So, does anyone have something interesting to contribute about either of these boats? Keep in mind, other club members own these boats so I'm not trying to slam them. I focus on the hull shape, weight, rig performance. I also comment on the suitability of the design for its intended use. I quote more expert authors for technical info I'm not qualified to comment on.
