Re: 30 Square meter
I think that the idea of a glassfibre hull with teak deck would be a positive in many ways.
I have some history with trying to purchase a square metre boat, trying to get a syndicate together to purchase the 30 square metre boat 'Pilgrim' when it was out in Oregon a few years ago. George Fisher had just re-done his 'Hansina' at that time and wanted investors for 'Pilgrim'. I was in and one other Forumite expressed interest but the project didn't get anywhere. 'Pilgrim' was purchased by someone in Germany where she was restored and iirc won the Gold Cup this past summer. Square metre boats are rare in North America and some of those that were here were shipped back to Europe.
I used to say that 30 squares are the boats we will get to sail in heaven. I think they are quite beautiful.
