There’s been a lot of discussion over time comparing the Merlin 2, Magic, and Hemlock Peregrine. Since I’m too lazy to try to search for all these posts maybe someone would be kind enough to answer the following-
of the 3 mentioned hulls, (or maybe some not mentioned) all variables being equal of course, which is:
- the faster
- the more seaworthy (wind and waves)?
- capable of handling the heavier payload?
- the better course keeper?
- designed for sitting rather than kneeling
Also, when the DWL is similar in different hulls, what do you feel is the advantages and disadvantages of laid out stems vs plumb?
