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

I'd like to thank you both for these efforts.. it's been a treat watching the process..

Glad you went for the double spreaders!

Now for the nitpicking:

Make mine fixed keel, please, no need for the lift (draft or complication wise)

On the aesthetics side, love the way you retained the essential 'look' on the hull; the whole concept of a traditional, beautiful old style 'yacht' with a high performance underbody lurking unseen below appeals to me greatly. My only change, I think, would be to not use the ramped front of the coachhouse.. I think the 'look' would be further preserved with a more truncated cabinfront, perhaps along the lines of a Niagara 35.

She's lovely as she is, but I think the whole 'illusion' would be more complete that way. Just my opinion, of course. Hey - we could 'paint' a gaff on the main so that from a distance she'd look like a gaff and tops'l rig.... (Kidding!!)

Anyhow, as I've said before, someone needs to build this one...
