    Coolboats to admire

    Omer, I like everything about that. Well done! quote name="Omer" post="5393700" timestamp="1469211717"]This is my baby... I think it is kinda cool and perhaps kinda admirable... Only because i designed and built it myself, if not for anything else. I have an engineering background but not NA. I have never ever tackled to draw or build anything bigger than a model plane when i was a kid. But doing something like that was a life long ambition. It is built out of cedar strips, 5 metres long , and weighs 45 kilos. People ask me why it is 5 metres? And i answer them.. because that was the length of my terrace :-) It rows and rows beautifully.... I do some 10 + mile excursions on lake Iznik- Turkey. She definately added happiness and fitness to my life which is nearing 60.

    Micro-Cruiser Anarchy

    Equally, now the assumption is that small boats don't need to be seaworthy for anything more than inshore stuff. I think that's a shame, you can design a small offshore seaworthy boat and they make great cruiser even if you just use them to do coastal stuff, even in the hands of a relatively inexperienced crew. One French classic coming to my mind (6.4m, or 21ft) : Some people crossed the atlantic on it, most people used it for coastal cruising or racing, it is a mini cruiser (OK not micro), was affordable and many people managed to save the money to buy one. You really don't need a 35 footer to cross the Atlantic, there is a sweet spot where you get the best capabilities for the money (18 to 28 ft IMHO), I think it is great to see people designing new micro cruisers. It would be even greater to see people buying them in mass again and this attitude "it needs to be big to be safe" doesn't help. This is a Muscadet. Popular in France. Lots of good pics and interesting info on the googles. dain

    Damn. Looks a bit like some of the older NHL goalies that didn't wear face protection.

    J/111 Goes Sailing...

    Look, let's just keep things in context. The 20 rating was one race, one race committee. Any implication that it was a broader judgement than that on the boat's perceived performance is incorrect. Do you guys realize escamillo= akagp ? Trying to have a constructive convo with the guy is useless. He has an agenda regarding the J111 rating.
