Second vote for the J 92

I have not sailed on an Alerion but much admired the lines. When I used to have a boat in a slip I had to walk past one each day and got to each day as the boat never left the slip. I did have to help the owner one day as it was taking on water and everyone on the dock was too fat (this was New Orleans BTW) to fit into the space to do anything about it. I managed to fit into the space and make the repairs. Not that I had time to look around but my overall impression was sparse down below.

At about the same time I did some racing on a J92, which was owned by a very cool owner, and provided some great times. My impression, the boat was fast, fun to sail, easy to sail and had close to standing room below and nice accomodations for a nice cruise for two or weekend with four close friends. It would be on my short list of boats if I were in that tax bracket.
