    I'd be quite proud to sail one of these anywhere!

    Anybody know what the boat is in the background? Looks like a nice day sailer.

  4. Several thoughts: 1. Fixed. 2. Thank you for proving it is possible to laugh hard enough to cause remnants of a Snickers bar to come out of my nose. Brilliant casting, I think Kathy Bates would be perfect as the MIL. If it was pitched properly the Coen brothers would love the idea. If not I could see Quentin Tarantino doing it as a kind of Reservoir Dogs meets Flipper with a dash of Django Unchained. Thanks a bunch for stealing my idea before I had it. 3. I don't think he can afford that much cement. Thanks for making me clean bourbon off the computer! That shit burns your sinuses! 4. After years of reading this thread, sometimes on the edge of my seat, sometimes bored to tears, can I get on with my life now? Thanks.

    Trailer comes complete with skirt to protect the boat's modesty.

    Looks like she's fallen down drunk a couple of times! Especially to port.

    That's a fast looking boat. Definitely for her age! Also on yachtworld: http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1976/bill-lee-Santa-Cruz-2543765/Milwaukee/WI/United-States#.VFrxvMmZL4Y
  8. I went right by there on a motorcycle trip this summer. I should've stopped for a look, but it totally slipped my mind. I'm now lamenting lost opportunities! Plus, She can play with my dinghy anytime!

    Interesting that just a fine line following the "underlying" shape to the bow really helps the looks of that boat. Boat design to me seems to follow some of the rules of photography or graphic design, rule of thirds and interaction of organic shapes. IMO such an interesting job or subject because it blends art, science and practicality. However much I love them, I dont think that most af these boats are anywhere approaching practical.

    That's a hell of a lot of spring in that sheer!

    Sorry about the Mac, but that album I linked is far from exhausted. Bolger to the rescue again! I don't know what it is, but it's gotta be by Bolger, right? Hmmm. Be interesting to see what would happen in the even of a Chinese gybe. Or even going about and heading back upwind. I actually like that one - must be the flush foredeck. Or a junk rig with...a furling main? Yes, On-boom furling.

    I like it. Reminds me of the early U-boats Or late U-boats for that matter:

    All practicality aside, it's still ugly. Chainsaw off the flybridge, it'd still be ugly. Something about the spring in the cove stripe makes the hulls uglier than they are.

    It looks as though they're perpetually stopping short at an intersection. Or they're anchor is too heavy, and not quite touching bottom. Look at that scope!
