Re: I'm not usually one for a woody

Wouldn't want the sanding and painting either, but she's still a lovely thing

Re: I'm not usually one for a woody

It's hard to tell a west coast boat from an east coast boat above the waterline, but below the waterline it is a no-brainer. What is it with west coast designers and their eleventy-seven foot drafts?

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

Re: I'm not usually one for a woody

Lots of deep water
5ft something draft I believe, so not that massive. My little 24' draws 4ft.

Re: I'm not usually one for a woody

I think that elegant lack of freeboard makes the draft look more extreme than it really is.

Re: I'm not usually one for a woody

I wouldn't kick that boat out of bed for eating crackers?

Re: I'm not usually one for a woody

Mine's bigger.
My wood boat, of course.
I agree with your assessment, she is sweet. And the sanding and painting need be no worse than waxing and buffing.
