Near one looks like a Riptide 35? 

One in front, no idea. But the construction looks interesting.

At Betts.

Latitude 38 recently posted a picture that suggests they may be SunFast 3600?  (At least in the foreground -- or maybe inner & outer shells?)

Definitely in one of Betts' sheds.  I'm going with a Blue sistership and the Wylie.

Nobody wants your loser boat shirts.  What if the stink rubs off?

The front one looks like a plug for mold construction.

Definitely Betts'.  Definitely a Riptide closed there were some 35s being worked on last fall, but looks more like the 41, (Blue sistership)  Paul is now living in Anacortes some maybe he is working on his own boat :).

For me it looks like the 35 more so due to the cutout on the chine. It is not present on the 41. The 41, also has cut outs on the stern from previous photos. However, both may be an option which I do not know about.

Chuckling at "Sierra"! You know how much Betts loves that boat! He's still got the molds. He'll build you one.

Yeah. Seen 'em. Touched 'em

Wylie 60-something day-sailer and new Paul Bieker Riptide build. I love Love LOVE the way Betts builds those fins and sockets them into the hull!!

That's the way to do it.  Stronger, cleaner and easy to drop the keel off for over-the-road delivery.  It's the way TP52s do it as well.

Roger Martin uses that system as well.  One I saw on a 43 was a bit loose.  But, it is a clean solution.
