Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo- think there is another dynamic as regards boats. Much of the US/Caribe/west coast of Mexico have harbors with in a day sail. A significant segment of US sailors are part or full time live aboards. For much of the coastal US the sailing season is longer than non Med. Europe. The economics of boat ownership are different as well. There are a lot of voyaging boats coming out of Europe ( especially France) whereas US boats "snow bird" a lot and for size of population fewer see need to voyage.
Just like it makes sense for me ( any many couples here) to have a 4 by pick up truck, and econo box and a comfy fancy car the requirements for boats is different. Having a non commercial pick up with 17 or less highway mpg would be ridiculous in Europe but having a super comfy 4 door Lariat make perfect sense here.
Quite some time ago you disparaged my airbag Goldwing. You haven't rode to Sturgis. You don't have the experience of this style of living so just don't get it. As said many times- different strokes for different folks. BTW- porche/beemers have very active rallye programs here.

Re: Sly 43

A nice video of the Sly 43.

Sadly, linear galleys seem to be in the majority nowadays over 40ft.
It will be interesting to see, if the new owner of Dufour will incorporate some Italian styling into that brand as well.

Bjung:
I have to agree with you there. But I think there is some TV coverage on some of the minor sports channels. I'll have to check with Kim on that. I don't watch the drag races either. I like Formula One.

In the area where I live I don't know too many people who don't own a 4 by pickup truck. They are almost the standard vehicle on my beach.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

The NBCSports channel on DirectTV carries rally in the USA. I still watch it even though I am long retired from competition. Derek is retired from it too, we plan to race the Francis Lee now to get our competitive kicks.

(Am I the only former FIA licensed Rally driver on this thread?)

Re: Interesting Sailboats

NBCSports also covers F1 here. I have always liked the dry wit of David Hobbs.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Nah, it's not lost. Paulo brought up American cars vs European cars and the thread started meandering a wee bit.

Kim might be the only former FIA rally driver on the thread.

Life is thread drift. Keep up.
