Re: Crown Sailboats
The Crown 28 was not really designed by Lapworth. Calgan Marine, who built the Crown line of boats, built Cal 2-29's under license from Cal. They tweaked the lines a bit, enough to avoid royalties and so forth and built it as the Crown 28. They did the same thing with the Cal 25 / Crown 23.
They are well built boats - Calgan/Crown morphed into Sceptre Yachts.
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.
