tommays will become famous soon enough
At least on Long Island Sound the PHRF is about its all around performance and is not really a good indictor of a boats ability to point

In the recent 190 mile Around Lond Island race at the 100 mile point (more or less) the crusie boats were hanging with the race boats due to very little dead upwind sailing (boats in the 100 to 150 range)

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
