Re: Life Span of a Boat

wholeheartly agree with Paulo. would only modify the comment by saying for some of us aethetics and comfort modify the quest for a fast boat. In my view Paulo is right. On another thread he praises the Boreal and it was on my short list. (A metal boat like Brent's). It seems to be a great purpose built beast. some crave the latest from NE Boatworks or an exotic one off. Others want a Morris . But its simple physics the latest generation of boats be they conservative or radical do represent an advance. I wonder if Brent believes we think all should be all sailing open 60s- I assure him that's not true. but many of us think many boats currently being constructed are beautiful, strong, comfortable and safe homes as well as pasagemakers.
