"Don't get me wrong," he continues. "The 400's a great boat, no doubt. It has a lot of potential, it's going to be a challenge to sail, and, like any new fleet, there's a lot to sort out. It'll take time to do that. And, obviously, we're in a dying fleet [Farr 40]. So obviously there's going to be another step here. What that step is, I don't know yet. There are a lot of options. There's the 400. There's the McConaghy 38. But it's a little sad, because what we had in the Farr 40 was a consolidation of one fleet. Now, there's so many options, I'm afraid we're going to fracture. What we need is for people to come together, build a big fleet, travel together, and have fun, competitive racing."
