westsail sub forum

Yes I would love to see a sub forum about westsail's. I think this is a great Idea. I have had three smaller sail boats and my next boat will be a westsail 32. I know alot of people love all the newer sail boats with all the technology, composite material, and space age science. However for me, if this was my thing, I would skip the whole works and buy a go-fast boat with triples and be done with it.

My type of sailing is entrenched some where between the "Spray" and "Kon Tiki". It is the old fashioned "Lure of the Sea" that attracts me to the Westsail. Doesnt matter if there are 100 faster sloops, cats, composites,
etc. The Westsail has carved out a niche in modern sailing that will stand the test of time as it calls us back to remember an earler time of a well built boat, navagating by the stars with a dream to cross the oceans.

Thanks
