Claude and Lynn McDill have now launched their new F-82 in South Carolina and write:
We launched our boat (which hasn't been named yet) last Saturday. We motored it around to our dock and took it out for it's first sail Sunday. Boy what a thrill! The only problem was a sticky centerboard due to paint, but we got it down. Randy Smyth supplied our sails and they also performed flawlessly. We were sailing in 15-20 knots with rotating mast locked and had more speed then my son & I were ready for and we love speed!
Thanks for a wonderful design and great support.
