 Upwind the AWA on the Windex just makes you shake your head. I

With all the designing, engineering, detailed workmanship, etc., looking at a windex for feedback makes it so much more appropriate.

I like that.

I heard a guy with an ior converted cruiser complaining about water slapping under the bustle making enough noise that he could neither sleep or hear his wife.

So, is the real question how to tune the anti-slapping device so it allows sleep, but still drowns out the wife?

Probably time to order some replacement keel bolts (40 year old boat). Just hate the thought of working under the boat and doing overhead grinding/sanding to re-fair the project. Wish I could rent some short, strong-armed kid for the job.

After that it'll be deciding whether to rebuild the aging wood cradle or buy a new one. Good fun.

Something about the lens distortion in the original images had me thinking that the stern was a typical double-ender, canoe style stern with a load of reverse counter. Definitely odd.

 

These latter pics make it look not so bad.

Men and boats rot in port - boats from the top down. She needs to go to a sailor who will use her. Bound to be at least one out there. 

That number seems high, but is probably right, due to the cult.
