Bob Perry loves the double enders. I have heard debate about whether it makes sense or not - intuitively it seems like it would help break up a following sea - I really don't know. But it sure is pretty.

I thought I was going to be cute and post a picture of some old swamped sailboat. I did a search in google for "old boat" and most of the pictures were powerboats. Hmmmm. Old sailboats never die they just fade away.

ThunderFog - here's one, taken while I was boat-shopping in the Hurricane Hole on Tortola, BVI. Needless to say, this one didn't make my short list.

Peter Brett's Rival 34 is no slouch in any beauty contest. British design so not sure how familiar she is to most of you guys. Meets exactly Parley's criteria of Proud Bow, Long Overhangs, Sweeping Sheer - to which I'd slender and graceful stern.

Among those with a cabin, my vote is for a LeCompte Northeast 38 or perhaps a Mercer 44.

That boat that's been on the main page for the last month is mine. She sure is a beauty to me. Alas, I spent my early years as a musician traveling the U.S. entertaining others and now may never be able to buy one of those .5mm day sailors (or anything else that might get me round the world) but beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I'll take a ride on "Fiasco" any day over riding this D*** desk.

If you like the look of the T37, you need to check out Bob Perry's newest creation. You can see it on the Cruising Anarchy bb. He designed it for Pacific Seacraft. It's a salty traditional looking design with plumb bow and long bow sprit, reverse transom (sorry no canoe with this one), beautiful sheerline, cutter rigged, heavy displacement and other considerations for cruising, but with a fast underbody (big cutaway with skeg hung rudder).

Oh yeah, it's not officially released to the public yet - he is just giving a preview of it on the other bb.
