I was gonna say "Good examples, now show us the one you're talking about that's not ugly" but that's just not fair.
That has nice . . . The color isn't . . . The hull is . . .
That's just an example of why naval architects shouldn't have parents who were related BEFORE marriage.
Beauty is often in the eye of the beer holder. I find something appealing about the "Stanley Kubrick" white exterior of a Bill Shaw Pearson so I have no leg to stand on.
ANY boat with a bone in her teeth lashing upwind is beautiful. And if it gets you on the water and having fun that's a beautiful thing, too.
But I want the slip next to a Cheoy Lee Clipper or a Concordia 41 so I can sit and look at it while sipping my rum at sunset and be thankful I don't have the upkeep duties on her.
