Thanks Chuck, I'll look those up. I was certain they were out there, I just never cared to seek them out like I do monos.

Neither did I. They are out of my wildest range and desire to sail on. The spirit 100 starts at 4.6 million british pounds. I can get a Matrix 76 for a fraction of that.

I won't argue money with you, its a non issue (unless you can lend me a few $$$ ). The Matrix is nice, but it has more of a modern apartment feel to it, maybe art deco??? They are all nice, but the styles are to far apart to compare for me really. The Matrix is like a floating version of Wrights Falling Water.

I agree Sapper, it's not about style tho - you asked about joinery and standards. It's out there for multi's in the same place as it is for mono's - semi, custom and high priced super expensive yachts.

Hmmmm... I guess I did.

There are some super monos that are super tacky too, think Bob Guccione mega yacht without the hot chicks. I guess style and taste don't always parrallel income.

So you would want a boat that doesn't attract hot chicks - damn you were like my AFOC god are you more lesbian than I am...

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.

Dude,
One who buy's a boat like that does not do 'varnish'.
He has varnish 'done'.
