Re: What is the age of your boat?

My boat is only 40 years old but the design is much older....it was a classic design when it was designed in 1936. She is in rough cosmetic shape now but still gets ooohs and ahhhs.
Under sail, she pisses off the people that criticize the design as being obsolete, antiquated, out dated and inefficient......as she leaves them in her wake.
I can't help feeling smug looking at the frustrated faces on the plastic boats behind me.
