* > You can run these costs way up - you may also find any of these boats used.
Also, the S1M and the Vic are available pre-built : the S1M from the factory or either built by local builders.
To compete in a serious fashion they all require additional cost: modifications to the S1M or Vic.
BOTTOM LINE: Come to the pond and ask to sail someone's boats - then talk to everyone before you decide.
We like to show off our boats and talk about them :)
