Sure, but they ain't up to the spec of the Lewemar 55 primaries on the
45' 1973 boat I sometimes sail on...
Actually, I think we might be approaching this from the wrong
Given a budget of $FOO+3K GPB, where ($FOO == price of new Bav), what
other *new* (or <2yo) boats would the gallery buy/recommend instead.
I suspect that the answer to /that/ question is probably Bavaria - or
the BenJen alternatives...
 'course when the owner points out that his keel weighs more than the
average BenJenBav, and that it's twice the weight of my boat, I can only
argue that 1m-draught bilge keels suit *my* kind of sailing...
 Or 2 year-old Bav, but 2-feet longer, c/w all the toys.
