The Hammerhead looks like a great tri. I've always liked Chris White's Atlantic cat design. Chris White Designs Multihull Sailboats High Performance Cruising Yachts - Catamaran and Trimaran

Boat for surviving this scenario?

I would commandeer a carrier group and assert dominion over much of Texas. Texas has everything required to be completely independent.

With the esteem gained by my new found notoriety, I would then proceed to commandeer the finest of the surviving girls of South Beach, Southern California, and of course Texas.

The I would seek to re-populate the planet.

Have fun fishing and hunting and raiding and what-have-you. Just stay away from my fiefdom in Texas.

I can see why someone in Denver would want Texas - it has a coast.

Dutch designers are among the best, designing aluminum boats.

We have already posted a Dick Zall model, a Van De Stadt and it's unfair not to mention the other big one: Koopmans (father and son). And for the ones that think that aluminum boats are a little bit on the rough side of aesthetics, there are a beautiful one for sale in the US. A classical one:

And a 47, just out of the shipyard:

I've looked at the Koopmans on Yachtworld before. It looks flawless. But I like bare aluminum - lighter, less expensive, and the first scratch doesn't hurt. I like Beth and Evan's Hawk as well - a practical go anywhere boat.

Here's a photo of a Chris White-designed Hammerhead 54, which has long been one of my favorites as well.



If you don't know, he also designed a Hammerhead 34, which is a pretty nice and much more affordable boat. The H34 is only about $120,000 new as a semi-custom built boat.

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.
