The DY Special was an early David Yost designed marathon racer molded by Sawyer. Advantage is a later Dave Kruger design for Wenonah with marginal seakindlyness. Both were before wings started compromising utility. My fav among the old timey racers, now considered stock class, is DY's Shock Wave, available from Steve Smith's Sawyer in Michigan. But I am compact, i.e. short and light.
GRE-Newman Designs sized Classic series and Savage River' Savage seem the top modern stock solos, both available online. For compact folk I prefer Placid boatworks RapidFire and Shadow with the high sliding seat. Rapid will be back in production this month; don't know about the slider seat or Shadow.
