    True and so maybe they all did well...me? Likes simple, like Snipe and C-Baot rules, along with ole tonnerw (rules).... We seem to deep-six "rules" by design and redo. by design as well.. placating younger "squeaky keels," the law of liminishing returns/utility...ends with helmets on a sailboat, as C-19 culls witless humanity. Why is that???

    @ L, Your comment, "Do care" and pic says it all, Capt. Anyone who has restored or even finished wood knows and should appreciate the work involved. This jetsam dodger swab loves it, and is about to do it again...fourth time...shoot me!

    Lots of swabs would love to have your 35 rig...lots, as long as the head works. @ Dex...I have always sort of wanted to sail a 22 SMeter and that SC20 has a similar draw...you flotsam you, You got me wishing and looking....Willmar, might have to finish recent boat project and call 'em. And they make a spendy row/sailer 18 foor Dory I saw...class acts.

    Sucker is wood, makes the work-result even better...amazing perseverance. Imagine the sanding... Thing is with sailboat, speed is relative, to me. All fast when you are aboard and doing it, cept a few 4ksb s but do owners care?

    Ah so, SS makes me feel so "with it" Does not matter, aside from small cockpit, (is "cockpit" ambiguous and PC?) that rescue is a pretty rig...so salty, to me. Wood? Seems too slick for wood.

    Sorta @ Q, The way I recall, the FF15 was short as most of designer's rigs were UK dingies and so on. Back then longer LOA was known for speed but he chose a market that just did not catch here.. Besides, the 110s were doing well then.and much less costly etc. I thought they tqcked well as any 14. Too bad not so big a market for Yanks.
