Re: Words fail me

That. Is. Awesome.

Those stainless "lifelines" are fastened to the topsides, not the deck. I hope the owner installed reenforcement on the inside of the hull to support those loads, otherwise, it wouldn't take too much force to rip those things out. But how cool are those shrouds?

Re: Words fail me

Should have traded some stainless tubing for a sail that fits... So much wrong, where do you start.

That rig is incredible. Looks like the mast might snap at the spreaders.

Put a lot of time and effort in it in any case.

Re: Words fail me

Always a smart move to name a boat "Titanic", I wonder if he has a policy of only beginning voyages on a Friday... ?

Also wondering if he added extra through hulls and made the cockpit larger...

I doubt Bruce King would approve of those mods, especially the way she is sitting on her lines....
