If you must know

The most amazing boat I ever sailed on was a 51' Bud Mcintosh designed wooden schooner name Pisces. She was owned by the parents of one of my friends and we sailed her all over the North East in good and bad weather. It took the whole family to sail her, plus guests.

She sailed like you can only dream about and even did well in light air. She sailed the way only a woodie can. If you've never sailed a wooden boat then you can;t and will never understand... She had that musty but nautical cologne like smell that only a wood can develop and I can still smell it.

Pisces was lost on an uncharted reef down south. Word is she was recovered and restored but to this day we don't know what her new name is or where she is.

This is the closest sister ship to her though Pisces had even more pleasing lines and a little more beam sail plan and deck layout were virtually identical though (Photo courtesy Panbo):

This Dutch built sloop was a beauty. Fiberglass hull like nothing made today with wooden mast. Fast and lovely.

Sadler 32 - smallest boat I ever sailed...easy to single hand, F A S T! Screamed through from Seychelles to Richards Bay in South Africa in under 7 days in av. of 25-32 knots. Hung on by my fingernails, hardly touched the sails and helm and could have kept going. Performance sailboat with a reputation built on transatlantics and a number of circumnavigations. Most well know in the UK and amongst South Africans and New Zealanders. Thanks for the thread, haven't thought of that trip in years.

Omatako will become famous soon enough
Soling or as a close second a Flying 15

Not the kind of boat I'd have a second look at today but back then they were superb.
