uspirate has a spectacular aura about uspirate has a spectacular aura about uspirate has a spectacular aura about
looks too small for comfort, i think a catalina 27 would have just as much room if everyone on this board could chip in a cool million each, we might get a deal on it.

edit: Giu, your boat is proof that a lot of money and drunk sailboat designers shouldn't be in the same room

Looks like one of those Steel gizmoloudous from the Pac Northwest. Pretty good boat as i have heard tell.

Guesser, that boat has been on the market here in BC/WA for about a year I think. The owner had it custom built. Last time I checked the price tag was about $1.5 Mil. We can go on it partners in a year or so, I'll have half the cash, what do you say?

I have to agree with Giu that it is a damn ugly boat though.

I dunno about that... Is that a drop-board keel thingamajig I see in the boat plan?

Definitely designed under influence of alchohol.

LOL, it looks like they stuffed all the interior stuff in there, made the boat super heavy... then thought "oh, it won't move, darn, no problem, let's add as much sails as we can in the most awkward places!"

It's like a giant McGregor motor sailor lol

I was all set to partner up on this thing until you called it a giant McGregor motor sailor, but you're so right, that's exactly what it is! It's just missing a giant outboard on the back.

No, he's pretty much saying out loud. BTW, I don't think it is fair to pick on a disabled boat... once she has her boom back we can resume picking on her.

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.

It is like a giant Mac. Too bad, with that kind of money they could have built a very pretty schooner, not that... what ever it is.

I have a soft spot for schooners, the Highlander Sea is right next door which is about 125 feet long and in beautiful shape and hopefully this summer I will be helping a friend launch and rig his totaly rebuilt 1937 wooden schooner.
