Re: Cruising Worlds Top 40 Boats
Cal 40 got my vote...
That's a good choice, certainly a landmark design... Still, I think it's original influence was as more of a race boat, so I've got to give the nod to Bob's iconic Valiant, which was an equivalent breakthrough in the realm of cruising boats...
if I could have any on that list for my own, however, it would be the Morris 36... (Sorry, Bob - your boats are a too deep for my dock (grin))
Hat's off to CW for finding the least flattering pic of a Bermuda 40 I've ever seen...
Sorry, but a Stack Pack on a B-40 is downright criminal... (grin)
