Oh man...I want!!!

I can't afford it, but it sure looks fun!



And a great interior layout. Why can't other boats this size be so logically laid out? They try to cram too much crap into too small a space, that's why.



This is a great solution for the crappy wood in most modern production boats, just some nice trim in the galley, and that's it! I love it.

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.

Personal Preferences

I must say that in general I much prefer a more slender and shapely "rear end" on a boat. I'd give up the second aft double birth for that.

For those of us in the North, however, any photo of a nice boat sailing in late November is worthy of a little envy.

I also like that simple interior layout too. Does it have two tillers or am I not seeing the photo correctly?

My boat must also be fat at 11' wide on a 31' boat. I can't imagine how odd a vessel would look if it were 28' long and 18' wide, can you SD?

This boat doesn't appear to have a V-berth.

Im a fan of older boats, but that is a good layout for a racer type boat.

Slender and shapely is slow...And it's October!

When a boat is that wide, it probably needs two rudders, so that at least one doesn't ventilate too badly when it is heeled. According to the website for it...it has a saildrive as well.
