I've always liked them. Although too small for our purposes, I have always admired the engineering that has gone into them. Well thought out boats, and from appearances, they seem to please their owners. I can only remember hearing of one bad accident. That was the one a few years back in San Diego where the boat capsized a drowned a few. The problem there was that there were 10 people aboard and they had not filled the ballast. Please, anyone correct me if I am wrong on that, but that is what I remember.
