Re: Interesting Sailboats

Hey, stop the burn on the Hunter. It probably has a 75hp Caterpillar option that will smoke your Comet upwind.

Attention to detail is what really distinguishes a careful designer like the mentioned architect. Check out that built-in stern ladder. On your way up from your swim, do not knock yourself on the head with the seat rail above while trying to avoid the platform rigging installed on the same side!

Finally, that is not any chine, it is a motorsailing deep vee, so at 15 deg heel and 12 kts under full power, it chops waves! It's all about creating apparent wind these days!
