    The Zombie Fleet

    While in the village of Milatos, in Crete, I ran across this curvaceous, but worn-out fishing boat. I don't think the Vaitses method was used. The last photo is what it may have resembled in its early days.
  2. I spotted this in Milatos, a village in Crete. I'm not sure what you would call it. There was no one around to ask. I also spotted this mooring line, made off to some old rock.

    Sabre 34s are nice boats. That is really a shame. I wonder if it is storm related damage.

    Have Torqueedo Outboards Come of Age Yet

    Back from Greece. I was out for a sail today, the wind stopped, and I motored back in glassy water. Here's what I found watt-wise. The H-Boat displaces 3,200 lbs., has a fin keel, a fairly narrow beam, pretty clean bottom, and a sleek, erotic underbody. The watt figures are the approximate. The watt usage moved in a range a range of about 20 watts, even though the speed was constant. The number is my estimate of the average. 4.0 knots 810w 3.5 knots 560w 3.0 knots 400w 2.0 knots 110w A question. Am I correct that a 900 wH battery will, in theory, provide 1.11 (900 ÷ 810) hours of operation at 4 knots and 8.2 (900 ÷ 110) hours at 2 knots?

    Cruise Ships: blessing or curse?

    Another horror of the cruise boats on the Greek island of Santorini is that the young ones rent 4-wheelers and race around the island. They don't know what they are doing. An obnoxious menace. Of course the locals are complicit, in that they rent the 4-wheelers, although I don't know that they're truly local.

    Is that the proverbial Big Friggin' Wheel?

    Do you think the stern overhang extends the WL in practice?

    The underbody looks a little more modern (and voluptuous) to me. I'm loosing it, aren't I.

    Thank you, Cruisin'. We were mere children when we married. We met senior year of college (2nd semester), and had known each other for less than a year, most of which I spent at sea on a destroyer. I cannot imagine life with out her (except when she produces the honey-do list).
