Stuart had the original at a regatta where we wee swapping boats back and forth to try others ideas. I took my own then very new to boating wife out for a spin. Wonderful, sitting down next to the centrecasewith only her head and shoulders showing above the foredeck she was comfortable, warm and dry on what was a fairly cool brisk day. I had a great time chasing other boats around. You know, two boats in site of each other make a race?
I can tell you Opdmus Maximus is no slug!
Designed to be a club trainer among a fleet of real Optimists, with a hull shape and rig the 'kids' could relate to and able to carry an adult instructor with a couple of students, the boat has turned out to be a lot more that just a trainer and is both a very capable little cruiser and a speedy and agile daysailer.
General purpose dinghy. Sail her, go fishing, or go exploring under oars
