I wouldn't assume that without sailing it. Its Sa/D is 17 and D/L is low 200's - very typical of IOR One Tonners. The One Tonners around here are still fast boats and our air is about as light as it gets.

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.
