    "Yes. Cassens and Plath (German) Tamaya (Japanese) Astra (Chinese/American);
    Frieberger (East German);"
    
    
    I am not clear on what arc radius qualifies as "full sized" in in this day
    and age, or the upper limits of "7/8ths yacht size". The Astra is advertised
    as having a 153mm arc radius, as opposed to the Tamaya and Cassens & Plath
    at 162mm arc radius.
