What is wrong with this picture?

I never thought I would own a power boat.

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's not impossible, it just costs more.
Give me ambiguity, or give me something else.

Yikes, after all the complaining Giu did about tripping over everything on sailingfools giant boat I wouldn't let him near my tiny 24 footer!! I think my whole deck may be smaller than Giulietta cockpit.

I know who took my mast too, 3 guys jumped on my boat and grabbed it while I wasn't looking. Then they said it was gonna cost a lot of money and time for me to get it back. Here's a picture of them stealing it, sorry for the poor quality I only had my camera phone with me.

T...I was not complaining...I never complain...I'm European!! We're allways OK!!!

Your boat is bigger than my cockpit....for sure...but narrower!!

Here is an interesting set of pictures, from the day my power boat became a sailboat!!!

One year ago.

Now that I finally have a good side view of your boat, Alex, I can see why you love her so much. She looks very fast, and I suspect she likes to heel over 20 degrees and just blast off.

And that is the first time I've seen what look to be curved spreaders in what I assume is carbon fibre. Is your mast 20 metres tall?
