Re: Question of the Month with Ted Brewer

I just posted the latest in my "Question of the Month with Ted Brewer" series. In this post, Ted shares 50 Years of Cruising Sailboat Evolution and gives his perspective on the inspiration and history of cruising boat designs leading up to what we see on the market today. Enjoy!

Re: Question of the Month with Ted Brewer

Sandingo is a nice looking thing isn't she ?

I like what I see of Brewer's design, certainly when we were thinking to buy a Brewer (near sister to JRD's ride) I received great assistance from both Ted and a certain Robert Perry that was much appreciated. I'm not trying to piss in anyone's pocket but it is pretty admirable that these guys are so willing to share their thoughts.

That article is funny, unexpected and very interesting. Bob has a great sense of humor and a big honesty. He is a great designer and a great human being.

The truth is that a design of a sailboat has a lot to do with aesthetics and not only with functional aspects. Look for instance at modern classic boats. They sail well and look terrific but there are a lot of design aspects that serve no function except an aesthetic one.

"Such boats would have L. Francis Herreshoff rolling in his grave and, frankly, they do nothing for me either."
Well said, Ted. You draw a rather sweet sheer line yourself, I admire it every time I walk down the dock to our boat.
