    zzarganas, just in case you show up here again: where are you from, and what is your affiliation with Astus?

    F-22 Update

    Carpe diem. Don't wait. If money is not so much an issue, have a closer look at the Dragonfly, its a beautiful boat. I was myself tempted by the F22 project, but luckily realized early enough that this might take much longer as many F-boat fans would want to believe. Now I am sailing a Sprint Mk II, soon my 4th season will start, and I am very happy. I have read lots about and seen live the F22 (never sailed though), but I would not trade my boat for the F22 even without the wait. The DF25 however, I would really need to take a longer look. It seems to be quite a bit "more boat".

    NEW ASTUS 16.5

    These are novel products. There's nothing out there to compare to otherwise. BS. This is what makes threads like these so utterly useless. Really? - pray tell, what other similar production boats should be we comparing? That's not the point. But look at the last 10 posts or so for your answer. However, comparing the Astus to the one boat somebody built some time ago doesn't help anybody.

    +1. Geez guys give them a break. Just wait a bit, videos will be there eventually. SA has the privilege to be informed early, but this is not the real world. The real world is out there, the public, boat shows, marketing material provided in time, etc And was it with this magical 20kn speed? Not a good boat if it's only doing 18kn? I got a Sprint MkII a couple years ago, very happy with it, so no interest in this fight either. For me and I would think for many around here (computer sailors and others), 14kn is cool cruising, at 16+kn I start to tighten up for thrills but less comfort, and whether it reads 18, 19, or 20+ knots on the Speedpuck, is for bragging rights but not more. So let Corsair sort things out. They developped a boat that looks interesting for a certain market segment, and they certainly know about marketing. So what's the interest in trashing them from behind your keyboards? Reading all this one might think that some here think SA stands for "Seriously Asenine"...

    Corsair Pulse 600

    Just coming back from vacation and opening this thread. LOL, best reading since the paperback version of Conan the Barbarian... Seriously, guys. Do some of you really think they can comment on the folding system or the sheeting angle from a single pic, and teach Corsair how to do it better? Criticising Corsair for not providing videos or any other information that you are too lazy to get yourself? At least they sell boats you can sail.

    F-22 Update

    Make it a "he is right / he is wrong" function, and you'd be surprised of the results. People who want to go sailing on these boats go with Corsair and DF, people who rather prefer spending their time waiting for the perfect little trimaran go with a F-22. Nothing wrong really with either one. This is a SA thread and not an F-religion hang-out, so why not accept another opinion?

    4 wheels are dearer than 2 wheels, and yet there is a huge market for cars.

    Thanks Peter, for sharing pics and videos. These little trimarans are so nice boats!

    F-22 Update

    Doing very very well. Just suffering this year from a rainy period formerly known as summer, but that's not the boat's fault. I am getting more and more used to it every time I go sailing, although still far from being an expert. Really happy with my choice.

    No you haven't, see above. 'Nuff said. Back to sailing.

    Maybe I have overlooked something, but it seems then that you chose not to substantiate what you said about Corsair ?

    F-22 Update

    From the bit I understand from your numerous posts, I assume that the answer will be more than rumours, and be backed up by facts as it should be. I don't mean to flame, I am seriously interested in the answer. Already covered in Post 1048 I had read that post. All I could find there was this: "As for sales, everyone knows they are slow, and this comes from many varied sources." I was actually looking for backed up facts, not hearsay. Says the masked man.... You are certainly being very selective in your concern for facts. A hastily setup pseudonym 'MadAboutMultis' tries to sabotage the F-22 in a post just one day after joining, and then brings up what looks like a bribe in order to sell another brand. Sure looks like someone is not selling much. However, he shoots himself in the foot as he is unable to back up any of his claims with facts when called upon. Where's your concern for such facts from such an obvious attempt at denigration. How's your foot? Maybe you should try to be a little more even handed, and then you will be able to come out from hiding under your desk. It really is better out here in the full glare of daylight. The simple irrefutable answer to your very selective concern is to compare order books. I have disclosed mine. Ian Farrier Farrier Marine Designs that work Geeeez... and I only asked a question. I am not a masked man, just a guy who loves sailing. No professional, no sales person. This is a forum where people with pseudonyms interact. Deal with it. I am not a judge, I don't need to be even handed. I don't have the energy for that. I don't want to deal with all the BS that is cluttering this otherwise useful thread. I had a simple question to a user and SA member who insists on arguing based on facts, and all I get is a "compare the order books". My question was not about comparing Corsair to Farrier, but to substantiate what you said you had heard about Corsair not doing very well. It's not about disclosing your order books. It's about facts behind what you had said. If you care about answering this question, I'd be glad to read it. If not, please ignore this post.
