    Coolboats to admire

    I spent a little while with Chris Hood a couple years back trying to get an upsized version of the 32. I still revisit the concept even now but at 1.5 - 1.6 times the size,( instead of 1.2 x we were originally talking) of the 32. Okay, well mebbe a smidge more relative freeboard--but only a smidge. It takes a pretty big increase to get sitting headroom for a WC. She's such a light displacement boat that even at 1.5 x, the bigger boat (priced by the pound) might still be doable....

    TwoLegged has a point. This is really dangerous territory. (but I do think you've been creative in walking that fine line!)

    Oops! But it's so sunny right now! (nice of the plane crew to give 'em a heads up, but no kudos to the id-jit blow boater. Dang! It only takes a few to make everyone look bad...)
  6. There's one of those 'things' (a Tayana) for sale in my marina, new. Well, let me amend that, it's at least 4 or 5 years old now but has never been sold to it's first owner yet.... (although, technically, some 'dealer' is the effective owner but, you get my drift....)

    Other than looking like the ama's have about 120% buoyancy (maybe, but marginal, in flat water, at best), this looks like a pretty cool boat. Did he have DF build it for him I wonder???

    Yup. Most of us don't own 'practical' boats and never will.... Sailing Anarchy - Impractical folks with impractical boats and impractical fiscal skills

    Point taken. I was thinking more hull size and displacement since, relatively speaking, both boats had an 'impractical' rig. Once you've accepted the rig, then, well, the A's would be 'more' practical?? Mainsheets with dozens (hundreds?) of feet in line length are a whole 'nuther thang anyway... (but I still like 'em)

    I'm always a sucker for catboats. Really wanting to know whether the new rig on Silent Maid is all that the owner had hoped for. Those A Cats seem like a more 'practical' size than the Maid however.
  12. But it sure does look nauti-tickle...!

    Something different for CA

    Only seating for 1 1/2 people inside, uncomfortably, when underway----assuming one has an intention of looking forward or enjoying the passing scenery. Otherwise....nice try. Lots of designs that try to fulfill technical specifications. Not so many that are also practical and user friendly.
  14. Aww, well...when you put yourself out there in front of millions, there will be plenty of folks who will have a different opinion—-even a vehemently different opinion. Uma folks are catching even more flak for their 2 gallon holding tank solution.... ( might even cost them a hit on their Patreon numbers—or not....)

    Is there ANY Antifoul that works? ( Bottom paint?)

    Thanks! This is what I needed to be aware of and wasn't. Good news..... for now.
