as i already pointed out, i am in love with the schock products. but... i was really impressed that on the j30, every piece of rigging the designer called for, mr johnson upgraded to the the next size bigger. i believe this is why the boats in the fastnet race came thru without problems.
so here is a good question, do you think the santana could have done the same thing? it sounds like the santana might have a stronger hull, but is its rigging as strong as the j30's rigging?
what wire sizes are used in each boat etc?
