101 Ct 54's. Sorry, just had to throw that one in. It was my very first grp design.
Probably not a good idea to play a numbers game with me. You admit you are challenged by numbers. But I do not think it's about numbers. It's about excellence in design and lasting value.
Hey, Bob - c'mon, you said you were going to go easy on the guy!.

Seriously, don't sweat it. We know your skills and we know Brent's skills and you're both recognised yacht designers with (mostly) completely different approaches, ideas and opinions. There's nothing wrong with that.

How about we get back to the topic at hand... what was it again? Oh, that's right..
