If you want a PHRF killer, find a Series 1 with tiller and small diesel. Take everything extraneous out of the boat, upgrade with better mainsheet, vang, folding prop etc and a good set of racing sails. You will bring home the gold more often than not and still have a great handling boat that you can safely coastal cruise.
