Re: Sailing characteristics ?

The same type of discussions occur in my world when comparing hand built $10,000.00 carbon fiber racing bicycles( I own one) to their $4,000.00 competitors. The thing is that the production bikes do quite well and see the finish line first frequently.
I take pride in riding the crappiest bike in the peleton, that still gets the job done!

I think one of the reasons many participate in this forum is to dive into the nuances of various boats, so sometimes it is difficult to just get a straight answer to a simple question. I'm sure there are answers to be found with enough searching.
