Hi Robert,
This is where your logic becomes a little unclear. After taking a look at a recent thread on the MYA forum titled best IOM, it shows that actually one of the very best current designs 'widget' was designed back in 95. (I guess this is what you refer to?) Now 14 years on, updated versions can be bought in kit form at a fraction of some other boats.

How can a boat that won International races when first designed in 95 and still be winning them 14years later be seen as a bad idea at any stage. Was good then and is still good now and reasonably priced. Nobody blindly forking out as no matter ahet the class in any type of yacht racing, people will always want the opportunity to buy what is currently the trend.

Maybe you can elaborate on what was bad and is now good in case I have it wrong?
