  1. I sailed one when they first came out. I was impressed with the performance.
  2. And that is exactly why we own two Portuguese Water dogs. I just happen to be a Newfy fan.
  3. Crash: Yes I'm sure that would be fascinating. But this series is my idea and I have my own criteria for whom I invite. Maybe you should think of doing a series. It's fun.
  4. Fixin: I don't think many people are paying attention to the series outside the Facebook fan club I have. That's a shame. So far it has been very entertaining and informative in a unique way. We have Bill Lee and Bruce King coming up. Bob P. Old Ashfield boy
  5. Here is the Youtube link for the Excellence in Yacht Design series presentation with Kevin Dibley as out guest.
  6. The link to the series is posted on my fan club page. We had a great time with Kevin yesterday. We had a good crowd. Kevin was a window into the Kiwi world of yacht design. He worked with Laurie Davidson for 20 years doing all Laurie's working drawings. He had some great stories. The presentation will be posted on Youtube soon. If I remember I'll post the Youtube link here. But it would be easier if you just paid attention to the posts on the fan club page yourself. The Bill Lee and Bruce King episodes should be memorable.
  7. Beer: Yes, I agree. The amazing thing about these presentations is that the designers say things they would never say standing at a lectern up in front of 45 yacht club members.
  8. Friday 12-10 on the Robert Perry fan Club FB page Kevin Dibley will be our guest with a presentation of his work. This will be the 7th presentation in this series. I just kind of made up the idea one morning. I thought it would be fun and add some spice to my fan club page which was becoming a bit boring. So far the series has been amazing and you can see the previous presentations on Youtube. We have Bill Lee and Bruce King coming up along with a surprise. This has nothing to do with me. I just introduce the guest designer and then get out of the way and let them take over the fan club page f
  9. Dolphin: That knife is Sgian Dubh pronounced "scain doo" a traditional Scottish knife worn tucked in your high sock.
  10. I'm not convinced it would need any stabilizers. It's so narrow I would think the motion would be gentle. The VCG is very low for a powerboat.
  11. Beer: LOA 60' Beam 10.7' 150 hp for 20 knots.
  12. Advocate: I'm doing fine with my stash of Vegemite. Thanks for asking. Busy trying to teach my fan club members, some of them anyway, that frac rigs on cruising boats won't kill you. It's a nice break from trying to teach them that spade rudders won't kill you.
  13. Fact is the Sun 27 was designed by Ed Monk Jr. It was a good boat but not selling well. They hired me to make it more appealing. I added bow rake and changed the transom. That's all I did. I might have done new keel. I forget. Bottom line is that I can't take credit for that design.
  14. Beer: Nope, I don't know anything more than you know. Roberts boats can be all different boats.
  15. Yeah, I remember Hot Rod. What a tragic chapter that was. I was torn between hoping for his success and hoping for a disaster. I would not want to do that interview. The only question I can come up with is "WTF did you think you were doing?"
  16. Here is the link to Julian's presentation. It went very well and Julian stayed and answered questions for two hours.
  17. There is a very good NETFLIX documentary on his life. Kind of a tragic figure in the end. I think it's called LONG STRANGE TRIP.
  18. I am a Jerry G. Fan but no fan of the Grateful Dead. Saw them play at Golden Gardens beach in Ballard years ago maybe 55 years ago. They played on the back of a pick up truck. Pig Pen was still in the band. I took some acid. Not sure what they sounded like. I do know they sure looked weird. Look for the LP OLD AND IN THE WAY recorded in 1975! This album is an amazing collection of musicians including Jerry on 5 string banjo. His playing is the best think on the album as far as I am concerned. He just might have been a better 5 string player than he was a lead guitar player. It's not
