Clearly "twin" keel is not a new idea Dylan.

Re: English Boatyard

looks like an English junkyard to me. One that happens to be full of boats. Go figure.

Re: English Boatyard

Thanks for posting those boatyard photos dylan.
Sadly, some of the shallow, bleach bottle sailors here do not appreciate the beauty, dashed dreams and ingenuity that these old hulks represent.
I still find them quite interesting even in their current state of decay.

Re: English Boatyard

Reminds me of the day I was at the grocery store before going sailing. We had the wood tender I built on top of the car. Some ding-bat came up to me and wanted to make an offer on the boat... to put in her garden as a planter! I didn't let her finish her sentence and walked away. Boats are supposed to be on the water.
