I fell in love with the model for several reasons. I like the open interior and engine access. She is very quick to weather and reaching. Downwind not so good. I like the little headsails and easily handled main. We got 13 knots out of her 120 off the wind. I put the new boat on the market, hope it sells and I will be very pleased to keep this boat. I received a PM about used sails but I cannot send PM'S so no I trashed them. The new Quantum tri-radial has a wine bottle on it.
My wife and i can sail the boat easily to weather in 20-22 knots with a single reef main and 100.
I over improved the boat because I never intended on selling it (looks like I was right)
The mainstream market wants: shallow draft (yuk) wheel steering (not in this cockpit) and a pretty interior. I want a vintage 911 turbo with fully adjustable suspension and air jacks. That is "cheap red"
