Without trying to offend anyone. I think most boats look too "space shippy". That's the whole reason I got this one. I know most of ya'lls boats are faster, better in heavy weather, have more room for bull dogs and ponies than mine, but I sure look good on the water.
Now, I'm not talking about tha hotrods like Giu, just the little cruisers.
To me, they all look the same, except my Venture.

Giu - Fred's Opti probably has beefier hardware than those Mac's. We had some at the lake, including the one above. The sailors moved on, the powerboaters kept the Mac's.

The design emphasis on the new MacGregors is definitely not on the sailing aspect of them... The gear is sadly undersized... and that causes problems for people who buy them thinking that they're proper sailboats... they're really not... they're jacks..

As in jack-of-all-trades.. master of none...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Dale,
Nice pics. Makes a bloke want to be there.

Regarding the boat, you have roller boom reefing on the main. Horrid system. Leaves way to much belly in the main. For sailing reefed (on the wind ) you need to get that sucker as flat as possible.

Cheers

Silly Portuguese person.

Even a daffy old wombat could see some evidence of a calm. Just making a point from looking at the pic. If the wind does pipe up........

Don't worry about it Dale, it's that hot latin blood. Gui's just "An Excitable Boy".

Nonetheless, do carry on .

Definitely not a space ship Dale but definitely a little cruiser. This is Silver Raven, the Wombat's hole in the water.

Pic was taken mid winter I think, so I'd guess it is the last gasps of an early morning winter mist. I took the pic early one morning on my way to visit my mother who doesn't live in Sydney and was unlikely to ever get to see the boat. As it turned out she was quite insistent and I had to drive up to her place , pick her up, bring her to Sydney, buy her lunch then take her home. Sheesh. Mothers !
