Forget the grill; they might as well have a pit fire and a rotisserie!

I like the sloop rig; that really helps it sail upwind well!

So I take it we can put you folks down for "not buying this boat," right?
I'm inclined to think it's intended as a floating condo and likely doesn't ever leave the dock. For which it is probably well designed. Usually I wouldn't criticize someone else's boat - figuring that what works for someone else doesn't need to be my cup of tea. But I really wonder how on earth that thing was put together like that and why. If it's a floating condo, why the dinghy davits? If it's meant to sail, why does the rig appear to be difficult to use? If it's meant to cruise, why is it so top-heavy?
So many questions.
So little time.

What tha...!?? Argh! Stabbed in the back by me first mate!!!!

That, my fellow Sailnetters, is the accumulation of many years of reading sailnet. The owner has been a long time reader here and designed his boat accordingly. Next to install is a HD Radar, an tradional radar, a digital radar, two bbqs, a solar stick, a solar array with 1800 watts (just in case the solar stick fails to produce as advertised), 12 4'ds, a fractional rig, a mast head rig, all wiring to port is crimped, all wiring to starboard is soldered, all wiring in the middle is wire nutted, a life raft that won't flip over, a life raft that does flip over but can be righted, a life raft that flips over but cannot righted (for our multihull owners), a bulldog kennel (advanced degrees offered), a wing keel, a fin keel, a full keel (and should I mention no keel in case you live in S Florida or going to the Bahamas), a fridge with Dry ice, Farr racing qualities, and Captain Speedo at the helm (also known as Pollard).

Mix it all together, and that is what you get. The finished boat will splash any day. Grab a drink and double your dock lines.

PS As this old sailor told me just the other day: 'It don't matter what you do... as long as you do it in style!'

CD,

Touchee!

The only thing missing from your post is the link to each respective thread. Come on, at least throw 'em a bone and give them a link to the "Bulldog" thread.

Don't forget the extra storage hold for all the weapons and illegal immigrants and of course rum.

She actually came back and posted a few times several months ago. Actually seems like a pretty cool chick. And definitely ballsy.
