Re: Halvorsen Gowland 33

We're all entitled to an opinion, and mine is that that is about the ugliest boat I've ever seen. All that windage puts me off right away. It's no racer, and just about anything will sail downwind. Without wishing to insult your experience, I would suggest a browse through Yachtworld's boats for sale at your price, and there are lots in that size and Aus$ 65000 price range, and I'm certain you'll come up with something way prettier. Even if you're planning to cruise mostly downwind, there will be many times when you need to be able to sail close to the wind, and having a boat that can sail well is essential to enjoyable cruising. Just my 2 cents.
