Of course I'm nuts! You have not figured that out by now!

Yes these boats do have sails on them. They are a bit faster than the old shoe! actually for there age and time, reasonably fast for there size etc. Not as fast as the current planing hull boats............I've been into the mid 8 knot range.....not bad for a 25' waterline! I would think an Attalia would be equal in the same conditions. They are IIRC about 5-10 secs a mile faster vs my Arcadia.

out to put some xmas light up in the cold! Altho not as cold as wyoming is right now I am sure of that, about -1C here in the NW where I am!
