I saw one of these in Sacketts Harbor last fall...It looked to me as if someone had taken a giant pneumatic hose and inflated one of our 235s. I found the effect...somehow...distinctly aesthetically unpleasant.

But I'm sure that people say the same when they see me in a bathing suit.

i imagine so. nobody looks real good in a pneumatically inflated bathing suit.

we have a lady that was living on one of these in the same marina as I was in. she is in a house now and I think selling the boat.. don't know any details other than that and have never seen the boat in person. If I remember right it was going dirt cheap but sounded like it needed a lot of elbow grease.

Kibo sold his F235 and bought one. Appears to be quite enamored with it as well. Indeed, most seemed to love it the last time they saw it.

Guess it depends on the moon phase. heh...

It definitely looks better with the sails up in the brochure. It's real boxy looking otherwise.
