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

Hart:
My point was I think the opposite. The clipper bow profile was seen as aesthetically acceptable for probably the reason you cite, i.e. the speed of the clipper ships. Good call on that. It handn't occurred to me. It was the spoon bow that the old timers saw as ugly. Funny in that we see a spoon bow like a Concordfia yawl and to my eye at least it looks beautiful.

Out:
We cabn make this thread last as long as there are people asking questions about design. I'm not going anywhere. I got an invite this morning from the ORACLE AC team for an all expense paid trip to SF to be their guest at the ORACLE camp with a potential ride on a chase boat to watch the big cat sail. I said thanks but I'd rather stay here on the beach and walk my dogs.
