  1.  Good Evening,

     You seem to know a lot about the Cherubini 44 and 48. I am considering one for the World Arc, a bit like going around the world in an E Type but I have spent a few Summers on a Friendship Sloop, so am used to roughing it. Somehow, the idea of doing the arc in a somewhat minimalist boat appeals to me.

    I think Bobs short businesslike haircut just makes those shoes look a lot like slippers. It's like sheer, it's a bit deceptive on camera. Great looking Kim. The amount of work and attention to detail amazes me every time I see it. Now can I have Bob back for a few days? :-)

    You sort of resemble Union General Buell, one of the most incompetent generals of the war but a really nice guy.

    hey, that looks just like Kim's boat! First off credit where credit due: that rendering you posted was done by Sons. Second see original hand drawing below: (Bob worked quite hard getting to the final product. He tried out various renditions of the concept until we got to the one we both liked, but that would take too much time in the movie so we will shorten the process when it hits film.)

    That's what they say about RENAMING, before the proper ceremony. Also keep the name off the boat, and all of that. But I've never heard of not 'naming' her or stating the name. If so, I guess you're all set and I'm in big trouble .... Isn't it bad luck to announce the name before launching??

    That is too cool for words. We should get Randy some better music to mix with the Vid, something more fitting the boat. I will email you some thoughts Kim.

    Great shots, kim. You must be proud and excited. Bob, you look at home nestled up there for a nap.

    A friend of my father's had a split rig semi-custom boat where the mizzen was not in line with the mainmast. Said she sailed just fine (I was too younf to remember how she sailed), but the offset was noticeable. Even if it did sail with the mizzen off to one side (I guess you compensate), it would drive me bonkers just having to look at it every day. Come to think of it, I think the mizzen mast was behind the cockpit so they never saw it. Still, it suggests shoddy craftsmanship at best.

    Very very pretty. Makes me wonder if Bob could add 5 feet and make me a double ender ...
