Hi Mike,

How did you get yours? Does anyone sell them in the U.S.?

I really loved watching yours sail at the Cinco de Mayo regatta in Reston, VA. That thing was fast!!

Thanks,
Charlie

Thanks Mike!

I guess the other name for it is Stinger A/S? I saw some other sites that sell the original Stinger. Unfortunately, they were very pricey!

stinger a/s

it was developed from the original stinger and the first prototype was named stinger a/s.
the boat along the way was given the nickname skinny and it stuck.
on pricing in south America the cost of living is much higher then the us

Thanks for the clarification Mike!

I hadn't realized the cost of living difference. I would have guessed it was cheaper down south.

Thanks,
Charlie
