I did some testing/training against a 2007 Blade this weekend (same basic platform as used for the Alter Cup) and this design is really coming together. New daggerboard design, new rudder setup, new stiffening tweaks inside the hulls, etc. (If my information is correct).
Anyway, I think those Alter Cup boats will be very good boats to snatch up.
But as always, I advice everybody to get a test sail on one to determine whether an F16 is a boat for you. Don't just take my word for it. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
