Difference between new and old mari"s?

The new boats are much more boyant and do seem to be going well in all breezes. The big difference is on the reaches. They can be pushed a lot harder without nose diving and if they do happen to dig in then they usually pop up instead of cart wheeling.

There are plenty on the water to have a go on.

Come to Port Stephens and take mine for a sail or let me know where you are and I will find one close to you.

Yes, they feel a lot livelier, the are lighter, stiffer, more bouyant, the old internal hanging storage compartments have become a horizontal bulkhead and this seems to have improved the bouyancy by stopping hull side compression. I think they will now carry heavyweights (like my 97kg) with little noticeable loss of performance.
