Re: English Boatyard

Cricket first - man you guys kicked our asses

as for small old english boats

as a man who owned a mirror offshore I know about fugly

a few words of defense about the boats at Paynes

1/ they are all pictured out of the water so it is hard to judge how they will look when afloat

2/ they are all fairly small l - so any cabin space has a disproportionate impact on the look of the boat. It rains a lot here so cabin space is premium

3/twin and bilge keels are ugly things - depth challeneged yachts that fall over when they touch the ground can be a realhandicap with out 20 foot tides

4/these are old boats - mostly from the early days of GRP when the designers were learning what will and wont work

5/these are tough little boats, cheap to buy, cheap to keep, great fun.

sorry about our batsmen - bloody rubbish
