  1. Here are AMATI's lines. I hope Paul doesn't mind me posting them.
  2. Here's a cruising boat that planes. Now renamed SUSPECT and racing on the Great Lakes. Previously a live aboard cruiser.
  3. I like emails like this: Hi Bob, We are still having success against the Melges 32's, Farr 30's and custom Hick 30's Dovell etc... everyone loves the boat. You did a great job - thanks Bruce https://www.sail-world.com/photo/309314

  5. I think Legs has it right. I check SA and CA everyday. If I think I have something to add to the discussion I'll post it. With over 6,600 fan club members on Facebook now that keeps me pretty busy in terms of playing on the internet. It has proven very productive. I have also been doing some virtual lectures to various clubs including the NYYC. That has been fun.
  6. I am truly enjoying your adventure with your Dad. I'm envious. Look for a better way to lead your jib sheet. As you currently have it bearing on the stanchion and straight to the cleat I don't think it's right. It should lead to a "lead block" first and from there to the cleat on the coaming. Thanks for including us in your fun.
  7. Talking to the owner of CATARI he gives no indication the boat is for sale. Never has. Launch was set for March. March became a bit weird, to say the last, and it was put off.
  8. Beautiful bass KDH. This is my custom PRS made for me by Paul Reed Smith in exchange for some design work I did for him. I toured the factory, told him what I had in mind and just left the details to Paul. It's a very nice ax.
  9. Sass: Most of the teak decks boats I did in Taiwan are beginning to get long in the tooth. Teak decks are aging and those who were lucky or wise enough to buy models without the teak deck are looking good today. This has little to do with how thick the teak is. It's still screwed down to the deck. Most of my boats had min 3/8" teak or better. But in some cases it's time to consider replacing the teak or eliminating the teak, not an inexpensive thing to do. So, to be accurate, teak decks may last forever, but the cored deck the teak is screwed to will certainly not last forever.
  10. The builder is Ta Shing not "Taishing." The teak decks will not last forever.
  11. I am designing a 46' alu ketch for a Hawaiian client right now. Some people just prefer a split rig.
  12. Zen master: HEATHER still has the original rig believe it or not. The current owners are total hackers and I am expecting them to bring the rig down next summer.
  13. John Buchan's HEATHER. Still going strong as a cruising boat.
  14. Black Sox: You are extremely close to the profile of the client. Airforce bomber pilot. Super successful in business and flew his own Citation jet to Seattle for our meeting.
  15. Check out the PT 11 nester by Russel Browne. It does everything well. http://www.ptwatercraft.com/ptwatercraft/Welcome.html
  16. Naaa, I'm not interested in talking to you about anything christo.
  17. Funny how guys like Christo have to keep changing their names. I've been Bob Perry here for over 20 years. Seems to work just fine for me. Chisto is a bitter loser.
  18. Actually I had my regular pedicure yesterday and my toenails are looking damn good right now. But I mow the lawn barefoot so in no time they will have green tinge to them. The Saga 43 was never what I would consider a well built boat. There were early problems when they reduced the deck lam. That was fixed. Then there was the "mast step of mystery". We changed that to floors and a s.s. bridging plate. The joiner work was just ok. But the boat always sailed very well and there are several very happy owners on the fan club page, now over 6,300 members. "Violence in a reply or comment
  19. Cristo: I wear a size 15 shoe. Your not ever going to fit.
  20. Saga's initial mast step was a bizarre design. We gave them a more conventional design and I haven't heard back from anyone who has it.
