I owned a Norlin boat for 15 years. Great designer, great boat.

If that's your definition of 'watertight bulkhead', very few vessels outside of the Navy have them - certainly not passenger liners of any era including the present - to the extent that would keep you happy.

Anyways, the design of modern passenger liners is a complex beastie and the current SOLAS Regulations cover all of this more than adequately.

..and besides I, for one, don't really see what this has to do with the design of Wolf's boat, so we return you to the discussion at hand...

The SLIVER will be christened FRANCIS LEE and it will live on Bainbridge Island hanging on the owner's dock.

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

Close to home.I read awhile back that Seatle should be the sailing capital of the US as there are more sailboats and sailors per capita then anywhere else in the US.

Jak:
Not sure I'd agree with that statistic. I think if you changed it to "boats" and "boaters" you would be correct. There are a lot of powerboats out here. But I could be wrong.

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

sure like to hear more about Wolfie's boat. Just spent the day in Bristol Harbor after ghosting down from Newport then waiting out thunderstorm cells. Saw the Museum (free if you pick up a mooring- money goes to the museum so the only time I felt good about paying for a mooring). Nat and John sure had it together. Their catamaran is a hoot and the boats they have in their shed are drop dead gorgeous. Makes you think there is nothing new under the sun walking through that piece of history.
