    I guess if you can afford one of those, you can also afford one poor guy who risks his life in the front office of this ... thing ... . We've seen pro cyclists on AC boats. Maybe we'll see some Olympic ice skaters now?

    very nice, quite some surgery done on the hull. Almost seems to me, it could have been as efficient to build a new one? Anyway, here is an IW 31 with another 'cabin n deck' job. for comparison

    This was kind of a cool project. You take the hull of a J/22, chop the deck of and rebuild it vintage style. Oh, it also got the keel replaced by a ballast centreboard, to fit on a shallow lake in northern Germany. Currently for sale. Not sure if I would pay 135.000 USD, though.

    Needed a dose of a true classic. (Sound of drinking bilge water...) Ahhhh. much better. Marcita. Illingworth design

    I'm also with my suspiciously sober-looking avatwin. Freeboard too high to be beautiful, looks awful in combination with this ducked cabin.

    Commander 31 Bianca

    I think the IW 31 is the S&S design you were thinking about?

    It's a one-off, a Berckemeyer BM 23, on Lake Constance, I think...

    Au contraire, regarding elegance at least.

    Not a big fan of the transom. It seems like a bad compromise. Rest is quite good. Reminds me of Isobel

    I read this when I was 7. And my father had read them before me... German, though.

    Comparing Specs

    That is sad. I never heard of his name so far, but I frequently use that site and found it to be among the best sources for quick searches and comparisons. Thanks for the info, best of luck to Mr. McArthur and my sympathies to friends and families of Mr. Browning.

    Mellow Yellow...

    What strikes me is how high it is compared to its design waterline. And there are already at least eight people on deck, so not much weight to add. Numberwise, my money would still be on a race-ready 25-year old X-332 to beat it, especially on a W/L course. We'll see, I guess...
