I prefer to think of it as "Jeff_H tries to speak fairly of the negative aspects of Island Packets based on his experience sailing on them and around them, direct observation, and from discussing IP's with present and past owners, delivery skippers, repair yards and surveyors. To some that seems like IP bashing"

But then again as I said above,"While well-meaning posters may try to filter out or highlight when something is simply a personal prejudice, speaking for myself, that is not always very easy when many of these pre-conceptions are so deeply engrained from or derive from the type of sailing I prefer and experiences that I, as an individual sailor, have had."

MiniTransat is on a distinguished road
I still want to get a blue water boat when I retire, but plan to sell it after I am done. My plans are to buy a good used blue water boat and sell it when I am done. I understand there is more extensive up keep to a blue water boat when it comes to equipment upgrade and blue water equipment is far more expensive.
Like it or not everything will eventually get old and wear out. For now, I am enjoying my Mac while logging thousands of miles and experience sailing her for a very cheap price.

Mast off = boat handling.

It motors better without the mast, less sway especially if you don't have your water ballast in.
