I used to have a 36" years ago, traded for a deep vee and regretted it ever since. A while back I had a chance to pick up a Dumas 45 Star that was partly built so I plan on finishing it this winter. There is no other sailboats around here that I know of so this will just for my enjoyment and not for racing.
may want to add a city to your profile as you never can tell who might also be out there with a boat and also looking for a sailing partner. There are clubs and activity in Colorado if you happen to be close tot he border.
