Best Hull type?
From reading Jeff''s last post and from his previous remarks on the virtues of the Laser 28, he has me nearly convinced that the Laser 28 with a retractable bulb-fin keel to allow the use of shallow mooring areas, would approach the ideal for a small racer/weekend-cruiser. The smaller sail areas possible on such a light weight boat are most attractive at my age. If reasonably low accelerations in roll and pitch were also included, such a vessel could extend our sailing days considerably. Does such a boat exist?
