    What brands from the 70s/80s would you resurrect?

    Johnson Boat Works. Melges needs the competition. The Santana line as well as the Wavelength series. Finally, S2.

    I like Lochiel. Though I would prefer more side decks, but she has a balanced look about her

    When good designers produce ugly boats.

    Two points about Robert Perry 1. It’s nice to hear from a man who actually knows what he is talking about. Getting legitimate information from someone inside the business is so very difficult over the internet. 2. If one does not toot his own horn, no one else will. ( but plenty of folks over the baseless / faceless internet will surely try to smash said horn to prove their self worth or worse “manliness”. ) Calling no no names here mind you as we are all gentleman.

    I know realize why she has not sunk, she is firmly aground

    Or worse, the fragments might each grow into a new boat, thus multiplying

    When good designers produce ugly boats.

    From the pictures...For the last couple of boats, especially the boat Bob drew, the hulls are quite sharply. It’s the deck houses that detract. Cut the deckhouses off ( I’ll loan you my chainsaw ) and rework something a bit more modest, and the boats would not look half bad.

    WD Schock out of business?

    Wikipedia reports “seems to have ceased operations.” However, their Facebook page is running with a new post yesterday. Rumors of Schock’s demise have been floated before.

    The Zombie Fleet

    This zombie actually looks much worse than the picture. With multiple open hatches for months and other “openings” in the deck, one wonders how the thing has stayed afloat

    Not exactly a sailing vessel, but the latest example of the ugliest vessels to ever “grace” the waters of the world

    Not the largest of our little fleet, but the one we have owned the longest
