No one brought wine...
Maybe its a 25' thing, as my visitors didn't bring wine either.

Hmmm maybe a new bowsprit would make it look bigger? hehe

Exclamation

It depends. Most likely yes to most, but if my dog growled or I felt an instinctive no, it would be no without a doubt.

Always happy to let anyone interested have a look when I,v tidied up, tho tour is hardly the term for looking round a 26 ft Centaur.
Often happens when I cruise along the Irish coast and someone sees a different boat in their harbour.
Was even tempted to press gang a fab mum once but the her son was just too boisterous.

Safe sailing

Yes I do since a 41' fiberglass trimaran sailboat is not a common boat, it would be nice to have the wine too
