I wished I had designed that boat

A question for both our professional and amateur yacht designers and wannabes too. What three boats would you be particularly proud to have designed? If possible choose boats from different designers and of different types.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Re: I wished I had designed that boat

Dorade

Windward Passage

Ganbare

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: I wished I had designed that boat

Albin 25
Night Runner (the aluminum hulled version because I got a thing against wood)
Sundeer 64

MedSailor

PS +1 on the laser. Nice pick, but since I didn't think of it, it's not on my list.

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
