Re: Why don't people like double Enders?

Not sure there is a bias against them, a lot of people just love the look of a canoe stern.

Re: Why don't people like double Enders?

I think it comes down to primarily your own personal aesthetic tastes, and the practical volume issues (cockpit and/or storage) that you have to live with.

Re: Why don't people like double Enders?

Jeff,

Thank you for such an excellent explanation. I have seen some YouTube videos with you in them and you are an incredibly informed and educated sailor. I learned much about sailboats from your easy to understand reasons and explanations. Again thank you for being such a knowledgeable asset to the sailing community at large and here at SailNet in particular.

Fair winds....... :^)

Re: Why don't people like double Enders?

I sail my Valiant because I love the way she balances and sails. Is that due to a canoe stern? Probably not. But it is the combination that Perry put into the boat that makes it wonderful. I would care less what its butt looks like. It just sails well.

And some of the boats that seem to be a bit of a compromise, that have a tapered hull but still a smaller squared off transom, like Cape Dory boats, what are they considered?

And what are their sailing characteristics like compared to a full squared off transom vs a double ender?

Re: Why don't people like double Enders?

Okay, where the heck is Bob Perry?

I used to assume the double enders were more seaworthy, and better particularly in a following sea, until I saw Bob Perry's comments on them in this forum. If memory serves, he said he designed, and became known for designing double enders not because they're inherently more seaworthy, but because his clients wanted that particular aesthetic.

My apologies if I've mischaracterized his remarks.

Yep, baffles me too. I'm sure with over 600 Tayana 37's built there are a few owners out there pondering the same question.
