    Sailing on Lake Superior this summer with friends Bob and Ilona. Soñadora loves this kind of weather. She's a hippo in ballet shoes.

    H-Boat Renovation Project

    as a Finn by marriage, I have to clarify that Finns are not Scandinavian. They're Nordic. And one should never, ever google Finland Fashion. Google Finnish Fashion, that's different.

    CATARI comes along at Pacific Seacraft

    Pilothouse/Deck Saloon is hard to do right. As a huge fan of the Deck Saloon (I like to watch), I've built up a short list of those I find appealing. My first encounter was on a Baba 40 PH. Still, in my book, the best looking ph/ds I've ever seen. It is so perfectly integrated and proportional with the entire design of the boat that it's hard to think it could get better (ok, the LM 46 Bob Designed is maybe a RCH better). This design just looks perfect. And no doubt, Bob has done his magic inside to make sure anyone seated has a wonderful view out those windows (personally, those windows could be a scoshe smaller - I'm sure once we see the rendering maybe they won't look so big). Bob is the master when it comes to the deck saloon. I also like Chuck Payne's Reindeer and some of the Humphrey's Oyster designs, but when it comes to making the structure an aesthetic integration into the whole boat, Bob's the best.

    Ugly dodger collection

    This is S's Dodger. I made it all by myself! and it shows. This was iteration 3. It's based off the original dodger. Last year it was droopy and flimsy and just plain bad. I took it home and improved some of the seams. Now it's not droopy, but the crappy sewing job I did shows. Iteration 4 will be done this winter (hopefully) Nevermind the bimini, that's a test. It's going to be a bit different once I get done with it.

    Micro-Cruiser Anarchy

    In most of the BWCA lakes, sailboats are banned because they are considered "motorized" (the sails generate power, so even a pram dinghy is a power boat). I wish I was pulling that out of my ass. jeezus... that's pretty pathetic Though some areas of BWCA are motorized (ex. Saganaga). But stil...sheesh I've always liked the Montys. There was a 15 for sale on our street for $700. By the time I thought about checking it out it was gone.

    Micro-Cruiser Anarchy

    I love the concept of a 'micro cruiser', but I'd have to name it s/v Barfolicious or Vomitus Maximus to sail it offshore. It would clearly emphasize the fact that 'comfort' is very subjective. I've always thought it would be awesome to have a small sailboat in the BWCWA (Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness Area)

    well see, now you have a problem. That boat is too good to use! here's what you do, get a fireplace with a really huge, gigantic mantle. And put this boat on top of it.

    Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    You've done well with those recent posts. That should earn a Google Advanced Image search award. ...unless you actually spotted and photographed them? For some reason, boatdesigners.net and woodenboat.forum are gold mines for ulgy boats. So why is that? Is it like modern art? I am just not equipped to appreciate it? Is it right to look down my nose at other peoples effort? Even if it looks like the boats I drew daydreaming in kindergarten? Am I just out of touch with modern tastes and needs? Am I too unappreciative of other people can-do, make-the-best-of-what-you've-got-just-get-out-on-the-water spirit? with the exception of that Carver 'Boot', I can truly appreciate all the others. I especially like that vanboat thing. It must be a blast sitting in the driver seat in that thing.
