I remember the figurehead you had on it. Wasn't it a topless Rambo Barbie glued to the bow with 5200?

It was the Rambo Tortola Barbie, like you said, but it was glued to the bow with epoxy -- not 5200! This is preposterous! If I'd put 5200 on there, I'd never be able to change her outfits! So what you're saying is that she can't have evening wear AND beach wear? What is your problem, GySgt? I guess she's supposed to go the beach in a flowing gown?!

Valiente,
It was the Hunter 20cm. Look on Yachtworld, and you'll find LOTS of them for sale. They only displaced seven ounces, which meant you felt every single ripple in the Southern Ocean. The woodstove weighed 600 pounds! Just a bad design all around.

but they drafted 9.5 inches, not good for anchoring 24" from shore

So, you people enjoying luxury of your huge pink boats full of Uspirates and have no idea how things work behind the shiny panels and soft mattresses?
