And i probably miss a few.
If you tell me a size and describe how it looked i may identify it.
It looked to be 40-42 foot. Had wishbone rigs, I have to say it looked exactly like the Freedom 39 except it had more wood.
I wish I had taken longer to look, but I was ready to get back to the mooring, and put a foot on land.

Once owned a boat is a touchable dream. It can be worked on and endlessly improved, the messin' about tactile foreplay to voyages in the mind.
