Denda:
I never quite thought of it that way Denda but yes, I am. Good call. As with boats, it's a subjective aesthetic call.

Just closed on the purchase of Valiant 32 #144. For those who don't like double-enders, you can bite my canoe stern!

When the wind was picking up to 40 knots, you can bet I was concerned, but not for my boat. Valiant's are great boats. You did good.

Integrity and honesty mean more than money and fame.

The Valiant 32 is a very "over built" boat. This is my very favorite Valiant 32 photo taken during a double handed race.

If your talking about the Valiant 32, it is 44 years old. It does have modern attributes, compared to a full keel double ender. It is like a mullett hair style, 'Business on top, and party on the bottom'.

It's pretty bad when we are making inside jokes that are only inside jokes in that you need to have read a few threads to get them.
