No BS tonight. That's too bad. I guess I'll have to go listen to some Mahler.

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.

I like the sailing proa. Not sure I get the power proa, "Honey go sit out on the ama so we don't turn over." But it sure is a fun experiment in design.

That would be a true test of her devotion LOL

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...

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

I need to rally the troops here.
If you go to Cruising World's Facebook page you can vote on the top cruising boat out of the top 40. I managed to get three on the list but I had to vote for the Valiant 40. Oddly the boat getting the most votes is the IP 38.

No BS on the list.

Time for a SiNcity fieldtrip!!!

Let's do it!

(PS - They must have simply overlooked the BS. Or just focused on boats that look great, stay off rocks, and can be shot.)

Done. I mentioned the valiant 40. I was on one with my father right after they came out. He was seriously considering buying one as his next boat after the Cal 33.He went with a C&C landfall 35 instead.Well, we didnt always agree.
