Boxed Up - they told me it was 4-6 years old. Anyway, I decided to rent the older boat for reasons you noted, and will find out in a month!

Also, unrelated question, but not sure it's worth a new thread. How do you reef the main on the Sunsail monohulls? It's a slab reefing system, as you know. I actually know the basic steps in the drill except for the main issue of how you depressure the main - do you luff it through releasing the mainsheet (which would make more sense to me since the job could provide the power during the reefing) or head into the wind, engine possibly on, and both sails flapping? Even though I've sailed for a decade, and chartered twice from Sunsail, I've never had to reef anything with the exception of a friend's in-mast 37', where I think we headed into the wind for a bit. But memory is hazy.
