Re: San Juan 28 - Sailing Qualities?

IIRC the San Juan 28 was a shortened San Juan 30 - they put a plug in the end of the mould to shorten it up. The SJ 30 was designed by Bruce Kirby as a production version of his personal 1/2 tonner "Accolade" that was built by the Gougeons - lots of info about it in their book.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
