Anyone else who knows the SAGA? I've actually been interested in them as well. I have a significant concern regarding their possible propensity for tenderness however. Everyone I talk to (bar one person) seems to have put on a deeper keel. I've also heard the comment that the increased windage of the double rolled headsails make for a lot of sailing at anchor. The lack of a navigation station also bothers me.

The thing about the Tartan that a bit of a negative in my view is the small tankage.
