Re: Interesting Sailboats
Some pages back we talked about Drascombe, a sweet old traditional open boat that today is everywhere. Let me talk of another one that is also around the world, a slightly more modern one with a small cabin. I guess with this one a young guy can have a lot of fun and go along the shore a long way. It sails well too.
Looks a lot better as an open boat without that stupid (and useless) cabin.. as shown in the last vid.
