  1. Thanks everyone; it seems the 11.6 is a good boat and will do what I want it to do. I missed the quoted comment the first time around, though, and so I've spent the last hour'ish looking at the 1220. It looks like a great boat and will do what I want it to do with a bit more storage and space. Anyone got any comments on the 1220?
  2. What boat did you end up buying after looking at the 72?
  3. Design 72 is the one I've been looking at.
  4. For one man and two cats based in Qld. Discuss!
  5. Thanks everyone, some really good tips here. I love the camera idea. They're so cheap now and relatively maintenance free for a big benefit. If going bigger it seems windage and ground tackle need attention. Makes sense. Chris White said he felt 57' was the limit for an experienced couple and it seems Soma's experience on an O55 bears that out. You guys are the best .... (insert_something_here) ...
  6. With two experienced sailors, how big could you go for a circumnavigation? What about with three? Not would ... how big COULD you go. Your max boat you'd feel comfy with.
  7. Great post, thank you. I would attempt to design a low windage platform but I guess you can get lazy and leave furled sails up. I guess I'm really asking is what is doable with a pair of experienced sailors?
  8. So prep around docking. That's a good call. I think it will take a good appreciation of how much she blows off and a good understanding of wind and tide and very good spatial awareness. What else though. I'm sure I'm missing something that more experienced people can help me with. I'm your standard male - I think I'm smarter than I am.
  9. Please, talk to me I'm a three year old (because that's the level of my intellect) and explain why, when talking about stupidly light, performance cats there's a huge difference in handling, in close quarters and at sea. I have my own ideas but I want to hear from you lot who are infinitely more experienced, better looking and possibly more drunk than I am Arigatoo
  10. I'm not into it. They're better producers than actors, that's for sure. I'd rather they stick to their successful formula but fair play for trying something different.
