No, I wanted to say what I have said, that contrary of what you were telling beauty is not an arbitrary concept even if it carries some relativity; and yes, there are people that are more educated than others in appreciating and creating beauty, after all they were trained and educated for that and their professional work is to create beauty for the community, I mean designers, architects and many other professions. And no, I don't rate myself high among that community, so no, I don't judge myself " ultimately more capable to judge the aesthetics of a boat than anyone else".

Not sure what a "speadwave" is....
That boat was presented by Southerly some years back and I guess it did not rise much interest, even if it looks like a nice boat to me. I believe they never made one, at least I never saw photos or tests of one and they surely would post photos of a finished boat if they had one.

The boat does not appear anymore on the Northshore page and I think they have abandoned the project:

Southerly

I guess the concept of a relatively big, mostly open daysailer has not much appeal for the British : It rains too much

Re: Interesting Sailboats

On the VOR 70 while only an accident can take the victory of this leg to Grupama, big fight for second with Puma winning miles over Telefonica. The boats are only separated by 12Nm with 560 to go.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

And from Australia some funny comments about the unfairness of rating old slow boats with big handicaps and make them race winners

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Incredible racing on the VOR 70!!!!!!

Groupama is almost at the finish, Puma that is fighting hard with Telefonica has managed to overtake the Spanish boat (they are very close).....but Camper, coming from behind, on a different heading, is making and incredible come back: He passed both boats, Telefonica and Puma and is now 2th

Those three will only finish fighting on the finishing line...Hot!!!

Re: Interesting Sailboats

From professional racing to amateur sail racing: The Saint Maarten Heineken Regatta. On this one all can race, lots of charter boats too and not particularly fast. What matters is having fun and these guys seem to be having a lot of fun.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Nice. Do you know how much watts has that engine?

I guess that boat with two of those hydro-generators that I posted about can go a long way motoring and considering that the boat needs very little wind to sail and while sailing it continues to produce 1Kw, it can probably cross the Atlantic with that.

The problem is that he has to keep moving....or go to a marina, unless it has also a small DC Generator, but they are heavy...at least 70kg

Paulo

Re: Interesting Sailboats

There is no info about engine. My guess it could be Kraeutler SDK-ED 8,0 AC with rotatable Sail-Drive (or SDK-ED 6,0 AC). Installed 4x Mastervolt MLI 24/160 Battery (each 4.3 kWh) = 17.2 kWh. To fully charge 2x MLI 24/160 cost about 65 cents > Electric Alerion Express 33, geek green

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Yes, Old traditional boats are nice but very modern ones too. Look at Indio, a 100ft wally and see if these big animals are not gorgeous
