Ah but were it that simple! The Quanta 28 was, I think, only made for two years ('85 and '86 -- one broker asserts only 16 were built), near Vancouver BC, and while the regional boating press responded favorably, Practical Sailor never got to it. As for Miller, my understanding is they were a mostly custom yard and only made one production model (the later vintage 28?). So my quest is really for needles in haystacks but you never know unless you try, right? I'm going to start hitting the old boatbuilders and brokers this week.

Best

Dan
