  1. Definitely get a beach cat. Which one really just depends on what's on craigslist in your area. Hobie 16's commonly go for $1k with trailer. Maybe get a nicer one with newer sails given your intended use. Lots of youtube videos of beach cat camping trips.

    Farr 36 - Toy Story

    Why not just buy a Farr 40 for same or less?

    J 70 PHRF

    No J/70 experience. But other J sprit boats are not great at W/L phrf racing in my experience. I would not consider a sprit boat for W/L unless you can not get/train a bow person for sym chutes. If you must have an asym boat, Vipers and Melges 24s are less than half the price.

    Dragonfly 40

    Cutting 1/3 of the weight won't be cheap if it's possible at all. How much is "Cost much less than $1M. "?

    This is the IMOCA thread.

    Correct. But righting moment (from the keel) isn't as important with the advent of giant foils.

    Dragonfly 40

    The 40' is probably $1mm ready to go. I don't think they need a very big market.

    Why would you need two wheels on a kite yacht?

    Any word on the keel pin incline angle?

    Dragonfly 40

    5000kg is about the weight of a Farr 40. Does seem heavy for a trimaran. I'm guessing the stern folds down to make a swim platform. It does look weird but that's great feature

    Nacra F18 infusion MK3

    Since all the F18 people are in this thread, how much would you pay for a Hobie Tiger? I want to get into the F18 fleet and hoping I can get an off season deal from someone who views the Tiger as a non-competitive boat.
