Bob- looking at a nice Passport 40 happens to be a shoal draft version. Wondering how you shortened the keel by 6" but kept the same ballast and displacement?
And does the shorter draft have any significant impact on performance?
This is Seb, I am working with the Golden Globe Race and of course we have a Perry design which is doing well!
I'm thinking of doing a piece on architecture comparing the Tashiba, Cape George, Saga, Rustler and Gaia 36 based on discussions with architects.
Would you be interested?
