A 4.5k carbon masted Laser/Solo beater has to be the aim. I can't imagine the production boat will have a dacron sail though.

I'd be impressed / suprised / worried if an epoxy foam sandwich boat with carbon spars could be done for 4.5k.

I never mentioned an epoxy foam sandwich hull Dan, just a laser beater with a carbon mast.

Does raise an interesting point: is almost certainly impossible to test a new design of dinghy in this country in secret.

No, nothing to do with me.

Sounds like it's more than just Russco who needs to spill..

I missed what a Nemesis might have been or was going to be or even still yet might be..

See Tech Astronomy ...

A ha. Well I venture that this boat is epoxy foam sandwich so is unlikely to come in at 4.5k unless some serious exploitation is taking place, or is more heavily invested in than any dinghy project ever
