  1. In light wind as the wind comes forward to the beam (and maybe a touch higher depending) you can move the pole forward and dip it down a touch to flatten the luff. At that point you are very close to flying the symmetrical tacked down as like an asym. It is unlikely to go as well as a gennaker cut for that purpose though it will depend on how the sail is designed as there are different variations on spinnakers. The symmetrical spinnaker we fly on the Davidson above is a much fuller cut with big shoulders up high. That's a lot of sail hanging out the leeward side in a less than ideal shape

    This is escalating quickly, there's a couple of Ross 1066's on TradeMe that look good fun too... Honestly right now I'm planning to list my boat, sail with some other crews, and go kayak fishing while I think it over.

    I have an 8ft dinghy I've been building for over a year... so I understand 😅

    I'm definitely keeping an eye open. I've had a couple of people through my boat so we'll see how that goes first, what I definitely don't want is two boats at once!

    Which engine type is better for trolling? 🙄 Had a peek at a Lidgard Demon 10 too. Lots of options.

    Yup, fortunately I've been through one boat already so have a little more idea what I'm looking at. Just to head off the impending debate... yes I'm aware both the diesel and outboard both have their pros and cons 😄

    I'm having budget conversation now. Not many 1020's on the market currently, any idea of typical price range? I don't hear much about the Beale 33 but there a couple active on racetrack at least. Where do they sit in the scheme of things? (Yes I'm exploring all options up and down the budget range. Looking for a boat I can commit to for a good few years now)

    Ah cool, that was just the class rating off this page: http://racetrack.org.nz/select_class.php. Thanks for all the thoughts in your posts here too. Comment on the pricing of Y88's was just after looking at TradeMe. Maybe they are being a bit optimistic there? They seem like a nice fit for what I want to do without taking the budget way up.

    Sounds like the way Scarlet is currently. Seafog sounds heavy though.

    I'd be lying if I said I hadn't shared a couple of these vids with the crew for "inspiration". Imagine how far behind the D28 would be! 😄 Here's the thing though, I only have a couple of years sailing under my belt and I have the most keel boat racing experience out of my crew. My crew pool is a couple dinghy sailors, a couple of solid cruisers, and a mix of new sailors. They are all doing great and are an awesome bunch to sail with but we're still building basic competence with things like the kite work, race starts and so on. I want to move up a generation so we're actually in the race

    Definitely looks a bit tidier inside than the other 930's I've seen Splat. Photos are always tricky of course!

    So I had a look at Scarlet which helped a lot. I can see why she's quick and would be a lot of fun but I think I'd miss the more comfortable space of my D28. She has things like functional headroom through to the head room etc. I think I'm going to list my boat, give it time, and start saving for something a bit more balanced like the S34 and keep looking around.

    BTW you are all great and all the boats coming up here are good suggestions to consider, thanks! The main thing will be figuring out what to do with the current boat...

    Where does the performance come from? E.g. a Young 88 is only marginally longer than a Davidson 28 and not vastly different in sail area but rates significantly higher in performance. Data lists it at almost half the weight I guess. It doesn't have the waterline length but rates similar to a Stewart 34 in race performance? I see both these boats claiming 20kts downwind at times which is fairly unimaginable to us. I have dug up a much bigger spinnaker for us to cause trouble with now but we haven't seen its upper end yet. Both the Y88 and Stew34 are fairly high on my desirable list. A

    I'll answer that myself by having a read of this 32 page thread... lots of info on all the different keels, though maybe not an terribly satisfying conclusion!
