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.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
