Awww give them a break.. lots of people want others to think their boat is designed/built by someone really special (particularly around sale-time) because no-one wants to actually admit they own a lemon, designed by a no-hoper and built by a backyard amateur.. right?

I'm sure they thought it looked at least a bit like an S&S 42, so maybe it was. I mean, who would actually check??


EDIT: A case in point: After a few years in a trailer-sailer, one of my old crew got himself all enthused about sailing the oceans and thought he found a "good deal" sitting neglected on a mooring up Bent's way. Ignoring countless warnings from those of us he showed pictures to, including the warning to get a survey before handing over any cash, he purchased this monster that anyone here would run from for far too much money and proceeded to spend even more getting it seaworthy enough to leave harbour. Having done that and nearly penniless by this stage, one near-shipwreck later (and a $1,000 bill for the rescue) and having knocked back an good offer of $20k for the scrap steel, I hear he's now trying to sell the boat for up around the price of a good Beneteau... It's sad, really. Very sad.

Huh? You're referring to a recent comment made over on CF, perhaps?

Well, that was nothing that hasn't been said before... :-)

But why not address it over there? Oh, wait, I forgot... :-)

Damn, smack, why are you still paying any attention to what those chuckleheads on CF have to say, anyway? I thought you long ago "settled" the Production/Bluewater debate once and for all over there, no?

:-)

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

The Ortiz' blog is pretty bare bones, no info on the boat at all.. or their preparation. Agree with Jon that if it's an S&S design it was not likely built, or finished, by any of their usual clients. The fact that the deck was peeling back off the stem is a pretty major engineering (or deferred maintenance) faux pas!!

Big thunderstorm moving through. Found a few leaks and just saw 52 knots. Glad I'm in the slip!

(PS - My bimini didn't blow off and I didn't sink BTW.)
