"the glass over foam construction makes her one of the heavier yachts in the GBE fleet"

 

How so? I thought the point of composite construction was to lower weight

My one was solid glass and was VERY heavy compared to the foam glass ones that were measured at the same time. Around 150-200KG difference which was 15-20%

I think the foam glass was also a lot stiffer.

It would be a great buy for that price!

having a dacron main may mean it still has the standard?, 'safer for cruising', pinhead mainsail

 

instead of the, 'must have 1 hull out to race', fat-head mains of the race boats

 

certainly great value!
