Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
That sounds like a great rating for 'gentleman's daysailor'. That is pretty comparable with a J-160 SD which rates -9 around here. I am surprised that you have a -7 rating. On the East Coast PHRF ratings are award in 3 second increments.
I am not sure there is any relevance in this, but originally the PHRF baseline '0' rating was based on a 12 meter of the era, which was considered to be the fastest race boat of that day. Of course you can see how times have changed when a short handed 63 footer is seven seconds a mile faster than a fully crewed, 72 foot, grand prix race boat.
I will love to see the photos, and hear how she sails.
