I have to admire the oversized umbrella frame that appears to be being deployed as an anchor - or is it an oversized harpoon, bound with twine to help keep it all together. Admirable.

I could admire... most of that.  As rode hard and put away wet.  

Except for the phone-booth dodger. Not sure about the dink. 

I was going to specifically admire the greenhouse as unabashedly ugly but practical. Really the essence of the thread to me.

As August approaches, I Admire enclosed helm spaces more and more, and that one has room for friends. The giant RIB is probably fast with a crowd aboard so I Admire that too. The kayak is a nice touch. But that is a load of crap on the top and it's kinda Ugly.

I admire the dingy, looks to be an old Sportyak. We had one in the 70's. Looked like a bathtub, rowed like a bathtub, but was indestructible and unsinkable.

I helped haul a waterlogged one on to a dock, it must have weighed several hundred pounds. Took serious grunt from four people.

I guess time has eliminated any bad memories of the noble dingy. There is a theory we block out the unpleasant parts of life, explaining why women do not have only one pregnancy. In our case I think a friend lost it while towing so it never had a chance to get waterlogged. Dad replaced it with an even less expensive version that lacked UV stabilizers in the plastic. Within a few seasons you could poke holes in it with your fingers. Mom got tired of this crap and bought a good fiberglass dingy that we kept for decades, I eventually sold it to Olaf, I suspect it is still going strong.

Let us discuss the materials that a dingy could be made of in a different light.

The light, materials used in a wheelbarrow used to carry manure in a horse barn.  

Plastic (of any kind) breaks easily, cannot stand the stress of everyday use in and out of a barn - failure

Metal (steel especially) One can watch it melt literally before your eyes.  Lasts weeks if lucky - COMPLETE FAILURE

Fiberglass. The EveryReady Bunny of wheelbarrows.  Lasts and lasts and lasts, unfazed by any known nasty substance.  Purchased one in 1987.  Have had to replace the handles (wood) the tire (obviously) but the wheelbarrow with original bed, is still in use at our lake house as this is written.  Enough said

I thought it looked OK for what it is, but then I noticed that the Flybridge/Pilothouse is wider and maybe protrudes forward further than the main cabin structure. THAT makes it ugly in  my book.

Here's a good one from the Land of Smiles for you all.  Maybe Rimas didn't actually make it back to the USA and somehow got over 2 borders into Thailand?

The 'bimini' is a work of art, and if closed off at the front could make real waves in the ugly dodger thread...

Nice commercial photo. Boat is becalmed and only heeling with sails 'filled' due to the helmsman leaning downwind. 

Reminds me of sitting in a McDonalds years ago and noticing that the 'sailboat painting' on the wall had the sails filled on the upwind side.

a few years ago the provincial tourism outfit made a new brochure for the area we sail on.  one shot was of a local sailor's Santana 35 under spinaker.  There was almost 0 wind so wayne had the boat under power in reverse to fill the sail...it looked good!

That is the first "Convertible" Trawler I have ever seen.   Convertible (yacht term) is a vessel that has a fishing/fighting deck, but is not designed as a sports-fishing boat.   Usually it is a faster planing or semi-planing cruising vessel.

Results in being able to do a lot of different things, in a half-gluteal fashion.

I was always wanting a steam whistle.    Scuba tank and a regulator to knock it down to 120-150psi, and a four chime whistle.   

I had suggested it for a friend's Santa Cruz 50, so he could give a heads up when either coming into a mark or the finish line.    Too much weight, he said.   That brought up the idea of a signalling cannon, but that is another thread.

Steam whistles are a PITA. The varying density coming out of it gives a very distinctive tone, can't achieve the same sound with compressed air, that's why circus calliopes used steam and have the sound everyone recognizes.

But they make really good 12V compressors to power any kind of air horn you want. I have a three-tone 120dB one on our boat. I wish I had a way to blow it at half or 3/4 volume. But the one time I needed to get some jerk's attention, it worked like a charm.

I would be a player but the wooden swords and plastic helmets are a deal killer.  If I am going Viking, I am going VIKING. Heck, no one’s invaded the English coast in a while.  But plastic helmets and wooden swords just won’t cut it against SA-80’s and modern, rapid fire 5 inch cannons.

SloopjonB. I remember, I remember looking at the brand new Mercury’s thinking they needed more prop.  I also remember my parents considering purchasing a 1959 Chevy. Bought a nice lightly used 58 Ford.  LAST FORD my father ever purchased. It was a world class LEMON.

That sent me down a rabbit hole! According to this article, the '59 Impala was such a huge, heavy beast that upgrading to the supercharged 348 (300+ hp) was almost mandatory. Its 0-60 time was still apparently around 13.1 seconds.

For comparison: the 2017 Chevy Malibu's 2.0L turbo four (about 1/3rd the displacement) produces 250hp and a 5.7 sec 0-60 time. :)

GM didn't offer a blown 348. Turbo Corvair was the first forced induction they offered. No blowers until this millennium

Those aircraft carriers were surprisingly light compared to current cars - my dad's '65 Impala convert weighed 3800 Lbs.

A new Challenger weighs 5000, my Jag XJR weighs 4300, my Range Rover is 6200 :blink:

Those old beasts were huge but not nearly as heavy as one would think - no door beams, no bumper beams, no rollover protection, transmissions that one person could pick up - without a hydraulic hoist etc.

The current (C5; C6 & C7) Corvettes secret.  Though the standard Corvette is down on horsepower to many of today’s super cars, the Corvettes performance is as good as or much better.  Dry weight of our 2000 Corvette was roughly 3200 - 3300 pounds.  So with ONLY 345 horsepower, few current vehicles could stay with it.  Good aero helped as well.  Great car, one of two I have owned in my 57 years of driving that I miss.  

No need to speed limit them electronically, they have the aero to stay stuck to the pavement (as long as its dry)

A topper on a cathedral hull.    I admire how one can stay dry, while beating their bodies to a pulp in a chop, should the minuscule engine manage to propel the boat to a plane.

I admire how the camper shell is turned the wrong way, and, as Stumbling has noted, how the vessel is adequately powered by an engine so small it looks like a pea head.

I admire the length of the owner's neck; he would have to be quite the giraffe to operate the engine tiller and see over the top of the truck cap.  Either that, or I admire his literally blind faith in the direction he steers.

The owner sits in the sun room, barking orders to the boat worker on the helm.    Helmsman relies on his/her faith in the sanity of the owner!!!

That is some misplaced faith.

On a David Koresh level.

I wonder if he has one of those propellor trailer-hitch decorations for when he's not towing the boat.

I also wonder if the brake lights and turn signals on the boat's transom really work.

Hey, Doug. Just wondering how the circuit for those break lights might be hooked up?  Could be a good job for a new apprentice - like fetching the tartan colour paint from the lazarette ! :-)

As they approach the overfall on the dam, "Now is as good of time as any to test the 6th mode!   Flip the big lever on the right!!!!"

I generally like multihulls but this one is, let's say "special"?

I admire that they are actually building this thing that looks like it should have remained at vaporware stage!
