macnaughton boats

hi

could anyone comment on this design? ive been comparing it to other yachts and it seems to come out on top when easy of sailing and 'seaworthiness' are top priorities.

comments from experience cruisers would be very helpful.

One thing I do know about them is they are a lot of work and a lot of lines to deal with.

This subject has come a couple times before. Here's the links.......

Also here is a guy that seems to like them. On his site click on SAILING and it will get you to the subject.

i always search a site before i post anything, so theres no double posting of the same old subject.

i was actually after some comments on the design of the boat itself. i have just about read everything i can on the junk rig.

the search continues. thanks anyway.
