i have no doubt that the j30 is a real badass. but i had no clue that the santana was anywhere near comparable. i adore my 525 and will prolly pick up a s20 just because. i just never considered any schock design for any real cruising or island hopping campaign.
it is generally said, that schock designs are made for weekend warriors in protected waters. they are not made well enough to take anywhere beyond the SF Bay because of light design and shotty construction.
i really need to learn about your S30 and S35 designes. what are the differences between S30 and Schock 30 boats? and S35 and Schock 35? are they the same?
