The design guide says that Phantom Kippers are quick tacking and good all rounders. How would they fare as a river/inland boat? Would welcome any first hand experience of this design and its strengths/foibles.
It depends on the builder I think. The Rowsell ones were really quick. Very good downwind especially. Won't tack as quickly as pure river boats like Passing Cloud or Quiver in little wind but a decent design.
