Re: NEW 47? ok, nice, but what's the diff' ??

I'd expect the Outremer's immersion rate would be higher (in kg/cm).

So a boat might float a cm or two deeper. Is that really going to be the end of the world? Will insurance companies really notice? Will Queensland transport throw us in jail? Will the coroner really investigate us? Or is someone getting all worked up over nothing...

Tagging along as well - My short list is down to the L450S and the FP47. I'm told the first 47 hull wont hit US shores till Spring.
