Here some more

The salon


galley another angle





Salon Head





The head's floor panels are plastic for racing, teak for cruising. Saves weight, too.

Rear view with 2 cabin doors closed






Like I say to anyone here...if you ever come to Portugal...just let me know...I keep inviting people to sail...specially Freds friends and other friends....

Everyone is welcome as long as they come with good intentions...bad people...stay away, no time for bad people...

Me too! I would love for Fred to show Max how to sail his Optima. Unfortunately Max's mom (not my wife) thinks that sailboats tip over and kill people. She instills fear in him. But I do my best to boost his confidence and support him, like my father(and Mother) did with me.

Stunning! Portugal has always been on the list but I think I need to move it up! Who is the designer and who is the builder? What year? It just occurred to me that people here are always recommending to people who are considering what boat to buy as a first that they sail on as many other boats as possible. I have sailed dozens of boats over the last25 years and now, suddenly, the things that I think are important in a boat are changing! My next boat will be very different than I would have thought!

Thanks Giu. I showed him Fred's thread the other day after we came back from sailing. He was enamored by the photos of the optima. There is a small lake here that has dinghys and sailing lessons. That is my mission for the summer, take Max there. I will show him the new photos you posted. You're a good man. (i will probably get crucified on here for saying that!)
