Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

What a great looking cutter! That's more like it.
I'd like to see this thread continue as a place where we celebrate diversity in design and the diversity in which we all enjoy sailing. This "right" and "wrong" stuff is tiresome. I'll take a good share of the blame for that climate here. But now maybe we can get it back on track. I will endeavor to behave in the future.

There's a thread on CA called "Cool boats" where we post pics of boats we admire. Then we have discussions about the features of the boats. The boats range from 8' prams to mega yachts. It's fun and educational and there is no end to cool boats out there.

Altho Paulo's stuck thread on the top, is based on NEW boats, his interesting boat thread is still fun to look at when one is thinking about boats of different types, what they are designed for etc.

Reality is, there is no best hull material, as is there is no best hull design per say. Only what may or hopefully is the best for how you are going to use your boat!

I agree Marty:
I always check Paulo's Interesting Boats thread.

Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

My sister has the original framed at her house.Spent my childhood and teen summers on that boat.The most memorable day I ever had sailing was on her.It was from Cape Porpoise Me to Cohassert MA, about 75 nm.We made it in a little less then 10 hours.Long surfs on 10' waves with just a working jib up.A great off the wind boat.She could pound going to weather though.
