I would love to get the Tayana 37 built between 1982-1985. Its a Robert Perry design and has a great track record for long term ocean cruising! She is just a gorgeous vessel, with that old time feeling inside. I would prefer a model where the majority of the teak on the decks have been removed.

So you guys spent the night there after the party. Good move. Was nice to meet you and see AUDRA after the race. Carol says she's sticking to seltzer water instead of red wine in the future in case someone swings a cushion around again! (Can't even see it in the pic!)
Will look for you when I'm up practicing on the CS I race on.

At this stage, my "dream" boat is a Pogo2 or other production Mini.

Moving up on the money and practicality scales, I'd love either a Pogo 40 R/C or maybe that sexy new First 30.

Those Hinckley's are to be admired, what beauties. I will stick with what I own, and have sailed for over 8 years & 14k miles. I just need to add another 6k+ miles on her this spring. and life will be good again..........i2f

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves

Nice meeting you as well David. Tell Carol no harm done...that's why we keep hydrogen peroxide on board We saw the Willow and Owaissa crews last night. Nice reminder of good times at the Constellation Cup.

Happiness is doing the best with what you have.
My Cape Dory 25 is small enough to be very easily maintained and up-graded, but capable of some serious weather. I have no desire to go off shore more than 100 miles. The Chesapeake, and East Coast is it's venue.
I just love this debt free boat.

I purchased my dream boat (also #1 on my bucket list) last Spring - a Seafarer 22 sloop. She was affordable, within my annual maintenance budget and performs well under sail. It's Christmas every day I'm aboard MAST TRANSIT.
