Hmm yeah that would be a good idea but then you can't sail it in bigger winds really because you are meant to be able to sail a Vago single handed but i dont think many juniors would keep that  up single handed in a F5+

i dont think all these comprimise boats are very good. like the pico, feva, vago etc... they are all for both single and doulble handers. there should either be a singlehander or a double hander, but not both!

yes but it's a very hard job to make a very good boat because if it was easy there would be one on the market at the moment

As has bin said in many other parts of forum. you cant compare all types of boat against one another, because each type has its good + bad points and honestly you cant expect to integrate al the good point in one boat as they are al such different styles of boat.

It may end up an average all round boat, but I would much prefer an amazing but very specfic boat.

Yeah and i think there is quite a few family boats on the market..........i don't think there is any need for more roto moulded crap plastic boats.

 

I think we need more designs like high performace single handers and double handers but single especially like the Musto Skiff !!!!!
