You couldn't have photoshopped the hoist out of the pic?

I don't mind the concept, but it's a little self defeating when there are hundreds of actual Dragons around that measure up to class and can be raced. If I wanted a light displacement keel day boat there are a pile of better ways of going that will be far more commodious and still provide a spirit of tradition feel. The whole point of the Dragon is to provide a boat whereby you can race and do light cruising that will give you a real sailing experience and where the trim of the boat can be adjusted infinitely. Whilst the concept is nice it's unlikely to go beyond the single boat that was built (IIRC) for some rich Russian. It doesn't have any decent dayboat type accommodation, and for a Dragon the coamings are a tad too low for my liking. The boat can be sailed by remote control FFS! Where's the direct analogue experience in that?
