I'd like to think that there were several decent mono cruising boats as well as the proliferation of production monos from the major production boat manufacturers, being touted as great around the buoys and amazing cruisers as well. It seems to me that what is being offered in Australia
by the production cat manufacturers is far more suitable for cruising in Australian waters than the anything the European mono manufacturers are offering. As someone who has just launched a new boat and needing to buy all the bits and pieces, the disappointment for me was the lack of boat gear for sale
in the halls. It seemed to be to be a lot of dead stock being offered and not many new ideas on show. And yes Factor, nice to be able to put a face to the Avatar.
