I bought a Pan Am 27 years ago so the 10 year argument is more like 27 years. That was a good board then and since boards and sails (according to manufacturers and magazines) get faster and better every year our new equipment should be on a totally different level - it isn't! It is certainly better, but not nearly as much as you'd think if you read the promotions each year for the last 27 years like I have! Those that think a 10 year old GO board with the right rig, fin and sailor couldn't be competitive with a new formula board might be surprised at just how competitive it would be. If you want to sell product you have to market it and to do that each year you need to convince potential consumers, not only that it is better than the competitions' product, but also that it is better than your product from last year.
