From what i've read about that boat, to operate it you better have both your captains license and an advanced degree in computer science.

All in all, I'd rather be the guy in the J24. He's sailing, not punching a keyboard (ironically like I'm doing here).

I think the flag on the Falcon has more area than the J boat that's behind it! The size of that boat is simply amazing.

I've got both. Where do I apply?

Wow! I am going to Newport on Thursday for the day; can't wait to see them all there.

Well, I didn't get the close up views that I wanted, but did see the Maltese Falcon from the bridge on my way into Newport, and from the window of the second story restaurant where we had dinner (Fluke, a place I highly recommend btw. Try the bacon wrapped and almond stuffed dates. I am not kidding). A line of vicious thunderstorms moved through the area, so we didn't get to do a full tour of the docks, but I did see this beauty. Ignore the handsome dog on the dock and concentrate on that boat in the background.

Etherial is in Seattle at the moment:

Sailing Yacht*ETHEREAL - Royal Huisman

The mizzen mast is taller than an Andrews 72' mast. Cascadia, a custom Schumacher 80' looked like a dingy next to her. Kind of mind boggling.
