Does that mean It qualifies as a production boat????????????????????????

Than that is by far the best looking boat!!!!!!!!! Oh yes sir, it is.....

In fact ONLY the hull came from the mould. Everything else is different!

Bob Perry said the Tayana52 was his prettiest design. In all fairness, he was talking about the aft cockpit sloop version but I still think we look pretty good!

Of course cam's opinion might be a bit biased, given that the photo he's submitted is a larger version of his avatar...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I thought that looked familiar!

Wumhenry, if you have to look at it from 1 particular angle, and only when heeled, does it count?

We still have a small fleet of the old 30 squares racing out of our club, a few 6 metres as well. They are all in excellent condition which is really something for wooden boats about 75 years old. They are all very pretty.

You should be able to view them here. http://www.phyc.org/Fleet/30_squareand6_meter.htm

Of course everybody is saying that their boat is the best looking and that’s great. We all love our boats.

I have another question and its based on the photo of the Hinckley.

What started this trend of $500,000.00 day sailors?
Hinkley is not the only one doing it. If I'm going to spend that much money on a boat, I want to be able to use it more for than just day sails! That’s an awful expensive day on the water.

Obviously there is a market for them; I guess some people just have money that they don't know what to do with. Not me.

Sorry if I changed the topic of the thread into a different direction.

Some beautiful boats! Does wonders for my soul on this cold winter's day in Connecticut. Keep 'em coming.

Why a $500,000 day sailor? I think they are more practical than they appear at first blush. If my marina is any indication, most people use their boats for daysails, not cruising. Why lug around a condo when the only reason you go below is to get a beer, take a nap or pee (come to think of it, all three are related to the beer)? I spent some time talking to Gary Hoyt, the builder of the Alerion line of boats at the Miami boat show last Feb. I think the Alerion Express 28 started this trend; Gary told me that his philosophy is that anyone who has enough money to buy a boat likes to live the good life, and will probably opt to eat out and stay in a comfortable inn while in harbor. 500 grand is a lot of money and you wouldn't buy one if you had any intention of cruising, but you gotta admit that you would be turning heads wherever you sailed.
