I was reading Sensible Cruising Designs and was looking at the notes on Quiet Tune and Araminta commenting on their similarities (saying basically Araminta was Quiet Tune w/ a clipper bow. I've admired the Araminta for a long time as a goal or dream boat.
1. I've seldom seen the Quiet Tune design mentioned , esp. on the Web. I take it that there were few of them built?
2. Would the sailing differences be mostly driven by rig not the hull (I think Araminta has more sail area)? What are the sailing differences between the two?
3. Is one form easier to build than the other?
4. Is it entirely nuts to dream of a new-build Quiet Tune?
