Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

Irrespective of Wolf's take on "grace and elegance" vs. performance - what interests me most about this thread/exercise is the alchemy of the visually "old" with the hidden "new".

If I can be so bold, Bob, that's what I love about your designs (I have your book). You don't do away with the beautiful "old" curvatures of yachts (like most of the stark, angular performance boats of today)..you just make it all work*.

Singular focus is relatively easy. Successful alchemy of form and function is beautiful.

So, please, from the peanut gallery...keep going Bob and Jeff.

(*I'm an ex-architect that comes from the Utzon/Saarinen line of appreciatives. For what it's worth...)
