i spent 4 hrs sailing the boat today to get a feel for it, it has a dirty bottom but it was still quite fast, i overtook 3 plastic production boats, should have seen the looks when there polished toys were passed by a dirty ferro that needs a paint
job. i laugh at some of the posts on this site classing ferro as slow and heavy. this boat is 3500 ton , i had a 28 ft timber boat that was 6 ton. i have slowly been reading through the ferro threads, it amazes me how many experts there are on the subject, they are quick to put ferro down, but you don't read ferro owners posts pointing out all the flaws in wood , glass and steel
. anyway i just wanted to report about my sail in the new boat, you couldn't get the smile off my dial.
