No doubt about that. But then again, it just takes one person to build a class (if it is the right person). Most people are followers.

The local sea scouts/cubs have just (last friday) placed an order for a fleet of the plastic version of the DS12 to be delivered ASAP. Freeboard will be increased to handle instructor + student but bottom will remain optimised for sailing one up. The other change is boats will have no boom (although the scouts don't know this yet).

"A fleet" comprises how many? (estimated)
By plastic version, do you mean rotomolded?

yes rotomoulded. Still discussing numbers. It will depend a little on how many we can fit on their trailer broken down.

Interesting that viability for potential rotomolded (larger scale) production in this case is associated to larger volume hulls, ease of transportation and simplified rigging - not outright speed.

The last 1% speed is irrelevant provided that it sells and helps keep the numbers growing.

Congratulations!

True, although as I mentioned before they don't know about the simplified rigging. That's me trying to cut costs.
