ByrSac is on a distinguished road
I owned one of the early Meridians, single-digit hull number, from the DeVries Lentsch yard in Amsterdam. Wonderful boat that steered herself on just about any heading --- no need to tie the tiller off, either, just let it horse around while the boat tracked straight. Small course adjustments were made by altering sail trim or shifting (human) ballast.
