There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

I wonder what it weigh's can't find anything on the website. 

Like the elan its probably quite a bit heavier and thus slower than our local boats like the R930, Y88.

Twin wheels is stupid on a boat so small ! They just clutter the cotpit

1850kg, a 930 is 2200kg.

845kg centreboard, stock 930 885kg keel, Turbo around 700kg plus spar

Draft, board down, the same at 1.88 (using a stock 930)

930 mast around a meter higher from waterline

L30 2.55m wide, 930 2.9mts wide

 

Wheels make it easier to sell to the lower knowledge/skilled purchaser this boat would attract   :twisted:  ;)

Check the promo videos by the designer on YouTube they were made quite some time ago before the olympics hoopla . Seems a bit quicker than a 930 or a Y88 . Still ugly , still strange but has a few clever features

Agree with this summary, designed for a crew not solo or two handed.
2.5m beam not exactly a fanger.

You really think they could come up with something better than this.

Even the Europeans are crying that is a step down from the lemons they are used to in this size range.

I’d say that’s bloody light. The pogo 30 is 2800 - which suddenly seems heavy cf. a R930 at 2200.

Our p36 is 3800, but it’s a considerably bigger boat. Still lighter than a sunfast 3600 but o wonder how that fits in the grand scheme of things?. Josh, what does your 1050 tip the scales at?

That doesn't sound right.
