Thank you Melissa for your observations. I couldn't make the Miami show this year, but did see at least a couple of those boats at Newport. I wish others who saw the boats would join in and offer their perspectives. I couldn't agree more that a spirited, (hopefully) courteous exchange here on the relative merits of construction and design of the new boats out there would make for a terrific thread here. I would also really appreciate it if Ed and other brokers, dealers and designers would chime in. Ed, please don't let the push back here dissuade you from participating. It should go without saying that you are right when you say that those in the boating business are an integral part of the sailing world. This site can be a great opportunity for you and others to educate the rest of us on your perspective.
