    what is it?

    Google's image search says airliner. So I'd say it is in wrong forum. But it does remind me of McConaghy.

    Forward Cockpit

    I thought that in day sailing you wanted wind on your hair and sun in your eyes. With forward cockpit you'll stay inside, away from sun and wind. https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2017/maine-cat-38--3675966/

    Maybe their product is aimed more to cruising. Figaro 3 is sooo small compared to DSS's cruising boat example, Baltic 142.

    The Future of Propulsion

    After I googled a bit more it seems that the micro turbine can use hydrogen in future, so now it burns dinosaurs just like regular folk. Most likely that boat will have diesel tank, not hydrogen. edit. Baltic did omit handholds in their renders with 67 too, but real boat got rails to hang on: https://www.balticyachts.fi/baltic-67/

    The Future of Propulsion

    Has anyone more info about the new Baltic 68 and its micro turbine range extender? Baltic doesn't mention hydrogen, but this site mentions it: https://robbreport.com/motors/marine/this-new-cafe-racer-eco-friendly-design-simple-handling-2913631/

    Greta Rides Again?

    First time I hear someone bemoaning taxes in USA compared to Sweden. They do have free healthcare, education and all that jazz paid by taxes...

    34-40 ft Cruiser Racer for 6-8 People

    "Displacement: 5959 Kg (approx.)" I wonder what the accurate displacement would be if that is their approximation.

    Diesel Engine Delete

    It seems that stuff in production has half that range in battery only mode: https://www.katamarans.com/ita1499/ edit. this system is also Oceanvolt. I'd like to see other brands too or electric and hybrid stuff will stay expensive and marginal option.

    France halved its gun ownership in decade, so you don't have to go 60 years back, 20 is enough: https://edition.cnn.com/2018/02/26/opinions/france-america-gun-laws-opinion-andelman/index.html

    Diesel Engine Delete

    I'd say that biggest scare about electric gaining popularity is that people won't learn the rites needed to keep the diesel god going. Many (most?) sailors won't do multi day passages and for those electric might be good option. But if they graduate to do longer passages they don't have the experience to use and service diesel engine.
