Re: Cruising Worlds Top 40 Boats

When I think about Bill Tripp, one of his most amazingly visionary designs was his Galaxy 32. It is amazing how advanced that design was for its day. Bulb Keel, spade rudder, comparatively fine bow, powerful quarter sections and longish waterline for that era.











The amazing part of this design was that it supposedly drawn in 1957-58 depending on who you believe.....
