I have two copies of the magazine as we were given two goodie bags at RIBEX, each with a copy.

If the post isn't too bad I don't mind sending one over.

It was a good write up,

but it seems to me that the hull is more orientated for performance than for stability. Interesting then that they say that it had such good sea-keeping qualities in the Baltic.

Monday Bank Holiday, the wind was very strong on Teignmouth bar. On Sring tide also the sea state was not good by any means. With extremely large rolling surf and messed up sea, both coming across and in to the Harbour and then back out of her to head to Exmouth the Arctic Blue 29 behaved very well and although I would say bow light at times, created a soft ride with very little slamming for a stepped hull. Only draw back being an inboard it limited the drive you could have to power through waves vs a powerful outboard, due to Turbo lag.

I thought the Arctic Blue 29 got quite a good write up.
The article lacks a bit on the contents side, I prefer it if the rpm vs. boat speed is fuel consumption is publicised. If have don’t have this article yet PM me.
