Re: Ugly Boats

Ugly from any angle. Someone actually drew that and said "yeah, that looks fine, let's build it.




Line drawing, it ain't any prettier here either

Any of these:

Re: Ugly Boats

I have to agree, #2 should not be on this list, that is beautiful, would love to have that, if I could afford it.

Re: Ugly Boats

The Trailways boat isn't ugly because it has a sense of humor. It's kinda awesome.

I suspect you'd find #2 was built as a racing yacht and converted to a cruiser at some point with the addition of an ugly cabin-top and wheel steering. I see that quite a lot.. and if the hull is in good condition and you can buy the boat cheaply enough, with little effort you can end up with a very lovely and desirable yacht.

Re: Ugly Boats

I really hope I don't offend anyone here with this (and sadly I like the company) but:

"Rum Line" an S2 7.9 - cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for.

That looks like a Yamaha under all that crap - they are nice boats.

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.

Believe it or not, that Buc was designed by Bill Garden. Not his finest work.
