Got it and I couldn't agree more - the new boats are much better at pretty well everything, especially getting the girls to come cruising BUT they look like running shoes. Personally I can't recall ever seeing a boat that I thought had too much beam to look good and rarely one with too much overhang - there was one Scandinavian boat that went too far with overhang - Spitzgatter?? - can't recall for sure.

I also generally love the look of IOR boats, wedge decks, stinger sterns and all - they just LOOKED fast. Mull had the most extreme looking sterns - Hotflash, Gonnagitcha etc. and they were the raciest looking of all.

I guess I am showing my age, pinin' for the G.O.D.'s.
