From a design standpoint, I just noticed something a little strange. On 99.9% of boats with twin wheels, the wheel pedestals are canted outboard to allow the helmsman a better of view of what is happening forward of the rig and a clear path from companionway to the stern for movement of people and goods. On this boat, the wheel pedestals are canted inboard giving almost no benefit whatsoever. Do they pivot outboard?

She's long, sleek and shiny...but not my cup of tea.

I bet she can put some nauticals under her keel in a hurry.

I guess it depends on where the base is located. On Giuletta the base of the pedestal is more midship whereas on this one the base more to the outside. It looks like the wheel is still out as far as it will go.


BTW, ice is almost gone

It really depends on where the base of the pedestal is. This boat appears to have the base of the pedestals as far outboard as possible—at the base of the cockpit benches, and need to cant inwards to allow the wheel the room it needs to clear the cockpit seats. It also leaves the area between the wheels clear as a passage... the wheels are too far outboard to get around them on the outside.

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.

My cousin is going up to the island this weekend. Apparently the ice is out in Honey Harbour and they put their boat (18' aluminum like a Stanley) in yesterday. Still a little chilly for my taste but my cottage is 45 years old with almost no insulation and theirs is a 1 year old, fully insulated modular home.

Here's a shot of Bella pita under sail during yesterday's Marblehead-to-Halifax race:

I love Bella Pita!

For me, my personal favourite eye candy is named Far Out. She is a gorgeous red colour and is 52 feet long.

Anybody else seen her?
