    Maybe not another million dollar doodle, but a lot of thought goes into Keith's designs, as can be seen here where the buoyancy is moved in to the centreline of the boat

    It can be done! State of the art construction techniques equate to a lightweight hull, a modern rig makes for a boat that is sailable across the wind range and good design does the rest!
