Boat Reviews

- Posted By Andi on Monday, October 19, 2009
Despite their reputation as needing to be sailed by heavyweight gorillas, Finns are actually quite controllable. 2nd hand boats are quite cheap and as Finns are built very solidly an old boat isn't likely to fall apart around you!

Although the boom always looks very low and likely to take your head off, this isn't actually a problem as the boom lifts up when you tack leaving plenty of room.

They are quite heavy and you could do with being taller, stronger or heavier than average to sail them, but well worth it.
