hmmm

 

I would bet the list of other things that bothered you would be interesting to hear over a couple of beers

 

Good luck to you with the new project

a curious misalignment of upper and lower parts of the daggerboard,... he observed.

Yep, our model builder has taken some initiative with the board design! That mini-68 arrived here all banged up from the travel... we managed to repaint her in time for the boat show but the boards will have to be sorted later on. Fortunately tonight we're having a few drinks next to the real thing...

One does what one needs to when your time is 'out' and the show must go on.  But when you've spent the money for a nice little model like that and you're advertising a high shekel product, it makes one ask about what 'other' shortcuts will be taken.  It's the little things.  Might have been better to not show any of the below water appendages.  More forgivable I think.  That said.  Nice boat!  If I had a few spare $5 million laying about, I'd come take a look.
