I appreciate that arches are now becoming more and more common, even on higher-end boats. I actually find that quite interesting, as Hunter certainly was one of the first if not the first to do so, and they got ripped for it. My suspicion is that it was because it was Hunter who did it.

Anyway, the Wauquiez picture I saw looked an awful lot like the early Hunters, fiberglass and all. Frankly that arch looked less stout than the Hunter ones. I'm not a fan of the fiberglass arches at all (the stainless ones don't bother me so much). I think they're very unattractive, but that's just a very personal opinion on an aesthetic.
