I will for sure do so to learn and gain knowledge but the more I read about the G18 and G17 from schooning the more I like them and fairly prices as well and seems like they have what we need

The key to the G series schionnings is as for most boats, build quality and build weight. I have sailed many miles on a 16.2 and it is a lovely boat.
