If you want to add in the rest of my cruising boats we can but the TY 37 covers it pretty well.

But go ahead, make up your reality. Post results of single handed offshore races won by BS boats. Post a list of circumnavigations by BS boats. (I lost track years ago). Post something real for a change.

You are all angry words BS. If you want us to take you seriously as a "yacht designer" show us your designs. That seems such a reasonable request. Just quit your drivel and post some design work. Designers design. BS'ers BS.

There you go again Brent. You just can't stop yourself from calling people names.

If you can't say anything intelligent just start calling people names. That always works.

If that's all there is. Then there's really next to nothing. I've looked. I'm actually a member.

I still wonder if I should have dug my heels in for the teal toe rail. (I think not) But I have learned to live with the fact that I will never be satisfied. But the good news is there is always the next design. That's what drives me. One day I'm gonna get this right. I was going to type, "or die trying" but I'm 67 now so I had better not be a smart ass.

We'll have a glass of wine when you come out to stay at the shack. We can discuss all sorts of deep design stuff. Or we can just drink wine and play guitars. I'm good either way.
OK Bob... I "get" what you are saying... Makes me wonder... You've sold "Perrywinkle"... Other than the Peapod, do you think you will ever design a boat for yourself? I wonder if you would be too difficult of a client..

Jeff: If you come by, I'll give you a ride to Bob's place.. Likely to be a long spinnaker run, one way or another...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

There's a box? I missed the memo.

I've got a million boxes.
I've got a Baba 3o box
A Flying tigert 10m box
A Lafitte 66 box
An ICON box
A Passport 40 box
A Valiant 40 box
A Nordic 40 box
A cheoy Lee 47 box
A Valiant 47 box
A Seamster 46 box
A Perry 47 box
A Nordic 44 box
A cheoy Lee 44 box
A Norseman 447 box
A Lafitte 44 box
A Perrywinkle 8'er box

I could go on but it's almost dinner time,

I dare anyone to try to put me into a box. I haven't even drug out my powerboat designs yet.

I'm a yacht designer. I'm not limited by some geometry method. I'm not interested in that box. Read it and weep Brent. Designers design . BS'ers BS.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

I think everyone reading this should get used to that view of FL.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Jon:
I would hope so. Time will tell. I remain confident that this one will change things.

Sailors will look and wonder, "What was that?"

That is the powerful FRANCIS LEE.

Stir fry for dinner. Veggies and tofu. My wife's request. Yuch!
I may have to duck out for a cheeseburger afer she goes to sleep.

What, a hazy skyline and a derelict waterfront? Is that really the best you can offer?? Surely there are better views than that.


Maybe Bob could post some from FRANCIS LEE under sail...
