The only reason for a vertical bow is if the rules have an overall length but no waterline one. After all, boats like 49ers have a raked stem. Admittedly, they don't have a forecastle.

OK so that would be the ad from Adelaide:

"One of a kind professionally designed and built for excitement on the beach this summer. With an amazing ride along the beach and then with a pull of a rope, you can be sailing on the water. This incredible sailing skiff has:
RWO, Harken and Ronstan Fitout
New fully battened square top main
New jib (furling)
Asymmetrical mast head spinnaker and retractable bow pole
Full cover
Roll-on, Roll-off trailer excellent condition"

Yup, all yours if you make an offer on Gumtree... Still not sure if it is a wind-up.

There was one of those beasts at the Oxford Blue at the weekend. In what was light conditions it flew even being sailed 3 up. Looked like quite a nice boat, deep cockpit lots of room and a fairly sizeable rig.

Had a sail in this yesturday, have to say its a massive improvement over the older boats, alot lighter (makes a big difference on and off the water) and just very nice to sail.  hope they do go ahead with it.

This isn't really a spy photo, as I saw it on a manufacturer's email newsletter, but...

Have Melges made a new version of the British Moth?

Would be interested to hear what it weighs and what the sail area is, compared to it's UK scow cousin.

That photo is never 16ft?

I thought they were claiming a "brand new" boat, as the link says!
