On the Salona 41 - they need to take another look at the rigging there. Your foresail traveler is going to be severely limited by the inner stay. BIG issues if you're going for a 110% or want to use a light gennaker up front.

Likewise, they have the German main sheet system, but likewise, this overlaps the foresail track. Big issue if your going off wind and have the main and foresail rigging chafing against one another.

Certainly looks nice and well built, but those are two clear "issues" with the current set-up. This boat is set-up for a sym-spinnaker I guess? The blocks are too far forward to single hand a sym and even double handing may be tricky with one person in the steps as the blocks are far forward.

Again, looks like a nice boat, but a bit of a hybrid with some concessions you wouldn't want on a "sport" boat.
