I need a faster, more comfortable boat
My International Folkboat is fine when the wiind is between ten and fifteen knots and steady. But if the wind drops below that, the boat slows to barely steerageway and wallows. Besides, my family hates the cabin. I''m on a lake which doesn''t get big waves and gets very variable winds. Mostly light air although it can go from 19 knots to 0 in a hurry. I was thinking along the lines of a Tartan 31, which fairly quick, but not radical in any way. I think this boat would handle a wide variety of wind conditions comfortably. Does anyone concur?
