Dawg, I don't want to derail this thread, but both Scott's boat and the older Dees GP-26 are both for sale in San Diego. You should be able to get aboard both of those.. There's also a FT 7.5 for sale in town.
I need to sail one and I am not impressed with the way Scot modified the boat.
Class racing is the future and if the builders and importer do not have a clue about that then the boat will be short lived.
If my 40 years (including 11 yrs making sails and numerous years of class and disabled) of sailing have taught me anything, it is what is the Builder thinking?
Just look at what the builders of the 2.4mR, Skud 18 and the Sonar have brought to Paralympic Sailing.........................Eliminated. That is 3 builders who have no clue what there target is.
So who is the target of Wrace Boats????????????????????
A bunch of nobodies who will buy a few boats and then bail because there is no continuity, which the builder has shown with too many configurations?
I'm just asking questions and showing interest.
I do like the boat. But which one will and which configuration reign supreme? The best way to kill a class is to not have a class. Rating systems in America SUCK when it comes to sport boats.
