I am in the market for a Stiletto 23 and have some questions concerning its sailing characteristics. I have seen some Stiletto's race against F-24's and was wondering about the rating. In an area that only uses PHRF is it possible to obtain a PHRF rating for this boat? We race with several excellent F-24's, but the fleet is primarily mono-hulls, hence our use of PHRF. Also, how well does the S23 handle? From the design, the rudders look a little small, meaning weather helm and possible tacking difficulty? Do you still roll tack it like the smaller beach cats? And finally, what are some of the strengths and weaknesses of the Stiletto 23's? Thx.
