    Looks lovely , especially for only 37ft.

    Minimal cooking etc set-up for a boat that size.

    It looks as though no one has the information. Your question is certainly interesting. When you have researched it further it would be good to know your conclusions.

    If they lift like that in 6 - 7 knots wind, what will they do in a normal sailing breeze of 20 knots or so. The prospect would be frightening. Well, maybe not to them!

    Well done! It looks enormous in the context of a garden.

    You must have a mighty big garage. Do you normally keep 10 cars in it or something, or did you build it specially for the boat? :-)
