and force are similar but force has a few mor e coach house rot
issues. they all sail same, unless some high aspect sails

..holds value well.--folks with all these models love em --the only bashing is by those without these boats and by those who do not understand the design.
if you wish drawings of each, go to yahoo groups--leaky teaky yacht club, and formosa 51 owners group.
