    Hanuman for sale

    Love the dining room and wine glasses on the table. Hope all are glued down while tacking.

    Gonet Monofoil

    The Gonet Monofoil was designed by a team including skipper Eric Monnin and his brother Jean-Claude, an expert on foil design for Emirates Team New Zealand in the last Cup in Bermuda. The boat was two years in development with testing on Lake Lucerne -- the project was launched before the Kiwis, as America's Cup winners in 2017, announced a surprise switch to foiling monohulls from the high-speed foiling multihulls of the past two editions.

    These guys are higher then Rick James

    Weatherly available for $500K? It's just a downpayment, I know, but still, it seems like a screaming bargain, even if most of us cannot afford her.

    "Dis is Sayula"

    Thanks for the Amazon tip. Watched it last night. Great story. Much more of an adventure back then. Loved that Ramon's wife signed up, left after the first leg, and convinced Ramon not to give up after the second leg.

    Beautiful photo but are you being dragged by fishing line?

    Bottom paint for fresh water

    I don't paint the bottom of my lake boat. Just clean the scum when the short season is over.

    Floating architecture

    When architect Frank Gehry wanted a boat, it came out like this:

    Floating architecture

    Just read this interesting story on architecture for floating homes and cities: This is a trend as waterfront becomes increasingly unavailable and unaffordable. Places like the Netherlands, Oregon, San Francisco, and Dubai are seeing floating homes built on their waterfront. Some architecture firms are specializing in this type of design. Cruisers have waterfront homes that move along with systems for self-sufficiency over long periods. What lessons are relevant?

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    I was at Fort Adams yesterday. MAPFRE was not at the dock. I heard they were at a boatyard. What are they having done? Keel?

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    Underbody is reminiscent of a Yankee one design by W. Starling Burgess. But that's a 30 footer.

    Is this boat too far gone?

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Collegiate sailing in the US began at MIT in 1935. MIT is not an Ivy League school. Last fall's collegiate rankings contain only 4 Ivy League schools for men and 5 for women in their respective top 20 teams: Sailing World’s College Rankings, presented by Gill, are determined by an open coaches poll. For more information on the poll, or on how your team’s coach can become a part of it, click here. The number of first place votes a team received is in brackets. COED Rank Team Total Points 1.

    Coolboats to admire

    Continuing the musical drift, last year I heard the young prodigy, Joey Alexander at 13, leading a jazz trio in a program of his own compositions along with those of others. I felt like he was the Mozart of his generation. Here he is at 11.

    Oh Bloody Nora - Florida mobos like seals on a beach

    Sometimes watching the watchers is more fun than the main event. Biggest raft up I've seen is July 4 in Cane Garden Bay. You can walk across the bay on rafted up power boats. You'll probably want to stop and dance on each one and it might take all weekend.
