Denr is an unknown quantity at this point
One more thought to ponder before pulling the trigger on an IP. Some day you're going to have to sail the boat in to a crowed harbor or anchorage, all engines conk out from time to time, I've had to sail my boat under these conditions twice in as many years. The point is that I was able to bring the boat back to safe refuge under sail power alone in a wide variety of conditions, something I doubt an IP owner could claim. Island Packets are sailing pigs, unless you plan to use the boat only under power, I’d look at others.
