island packet 35

Obviously, ''No Grudge'' you know nothing about me or about my objectivity.

Actually, I truly love well designed and engineered cruising boats. I spend most of my time that I am on the water cruising.I love to cruise but I also love to cruise under sail. I have actually sailed on these boats with owners who have had a problem trying to figure out how to make their boat sail well. My comments are based on my own observations of the Island Packet 35 relative to other 35 foot cruising boats that I have sailed. I don''t have a bias against non-race boats. My bias is against boats that do not sail well, are difficult to sail, do not adapt well to changable conditions, and have uncomfortable motions.
