I am pretty sure there isn't even a bulb-option for the A35. Astounding that the A35 anyway is able to hold the JPK 1010's speed...

A Drifter is a lightweight nylon No. 1 genoa and it is mostly a cruising sail while the code 0 was developed for solo racers and it is a bigger sail. They are used for the same range of wind (till 15K) and normally used from 45º to 90 degrees. The drifter polled out can also be used for downwind sailing.

Yes there is a torpedo keel. They use it for instance on the Transquadra.

Sure? I neither find this option on the manufacturer's site nor at any dealer's...

Hi Paulo,
I even think the angle is wider than 90. Look at this promotional video of North Sails. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CHh0ySn...autoplay%253D1

I tried a furling Code 1 by Elvstrom on the Luffe 37 in very light wind conditions and it was amazingly efficient upwind. I did not try it poled out but like you Oluf said this can be done. I ordered one for my Luffe which will be ready in a couple of months or earlier. I skipped the spinnaker, since most of the time I will sail solo and am sceptical of my ability to handle it myself together with the Amin and the steering on that kind of boat.

Regards

Rumen

Hi, nice to hear from you...and I want to see photos of your new boat and I believe I will not be the only one.

Those angles are only the ones were the sail has better efficiency. I had a Code 0 and it was a fantastic sail for light wind. I don't know what is the sail configuration you are going to use and I don't know if a code 0 would not be more useful than a code1, maybe. Ask Oluf, he will know.

Regards

Paulo

The boat is not ready yet. Hull and deck have been molded by means of vacuum infused technology with epoxy and balsa core. Here is the link: The Switch to Closed Molding - Professional BoatBuilder Magazine
I was at the boat yard in late November and talked to one of the workers. He said the stiffness is much better than that of previous GRP polyester hand laid hulls and decks.*
Because I wanted a selftacking jib in order not to undersize it a lot, Oluf moved the mast back a little and now the total sail plan is 49 sq.m. (25 main and 24 jib) instead of the standard 51 sq.m. (26 main and 25 overlapping jib), thus the balance remains the same. Besides, after weighing the pros against the price increase, I opted for a carbon fibre mast and boom instead of the standard aluminium as per my initial order. The manufacturer is Southern Spars. Well, I hope I will save money from other non-boat related things.
Regards
Rumen

Rm 1600

Unbelievable, Rm wants to make yachts A brand that for many years made only small boats (the 1200 has not many years) goes for the big ones. I hope that, like many, it will not abandon its origins and the small cruisers.

And for now, what I can say is that the 1600 looks like a yacht...and a nice one
