WDS123 is on a distinguished road

Our competition has done a great job of creating the false impression that our boats are under engineered, but the J/30 vs S30 shroud example cited above is a perfect example of the reality vs. marketing hype.

The S/30 shrouds are some 30% stronger, but somehow word on the street was that the J/30 had some super extraordinary over built shrouds.
