  1. I kind of hope they stick to a single rudder ala 121, but it sure looks like twins in the render and a wider rear. As long as this isn’t just a reaching machine it’s really the sweet spot in my book. I’ll give the obligatory, what’s it rate? Way to early to know....
  2. I don't really care how long it's been around. There's a time and a place for jokes, and if you had a lick of sense you'd recognize this is neither the time nor the place. Pretty f-ing inconsiderate in my book. Maybe take a moment to think about it vs. digging yourself a deeper hole.
  3. SA needs a proper interview of this guy. I’d love to heat more about the highs and lows of his journey.

    What's the autopilot set up? It didn't look like a tiller unit.
  5. Maybe he's patenting a new process. It allows you to keep it in your toolbox and then when you toss it back in the water it expands. Kind of like the foam dinosaurs.
  6. I think I’d take the Kia over the Malibu!
  7. How old are the 36.7’s these days? Maybe look at depreciation vs years post launch for better comparison. Or remember that an A4 is always going to be worth more than a Chevy Malibu. :-)
  8. You've sure made your mark on this thread, as a turd leaving a unsightly skid mark on an otherwise meritful and interesting discussion of beautiful and fuel efficient vessels. I've never once ignored anyone on this site, and there are a lot of people with pretty special attitudes, but you're pretty close to making the list. I suspect you'll take that as an honor though and will lash back with some toothy response as your blood pressure rises. Let's leave the personal angst and pissing matches aside because I really don't care what cloth your cut from, what mark your making in life, nor
  9. Both the cat & the tri! These are the first non-traditional boats i've seen in the thread which I actually like. The cat reminds me of a taller more seaworthy version of the cats they use to coach the rowers on the rivers.
  10. Dumb question, but what's the sail for? Does it help with the motion, or stabilize at anchorage? Starting to head to Mac26 territory if you ask me.
  11. One of the smoothest most refined rides ever in a run about was in a 30' Hacker-Craft. These wood boats are beauties!
  12. Cool approach on the retractable amas. This has turned into quite the hypermiler thread which is interesting. I'd take Bob Perry's more traditional design any day over this, but then again, my idea of good days on the water is not covering distance at moderate speed. That's what sailing if for. Farleydoodle - That San Juan is BEAUTIFUL! I've always been a fan of the picnic boats and really like what MJM has done to modernize with an eye to fuel conservation. Open checkbook for a powerboat and it would be a nice new MJM with outboards, closely followed by the True North, just because

    You probably already know, but there are 9 J/88's on southern Lake Mich, 5-7 in Chicago proper if you just want to see one in person. MidPack - Thanks. My profile needs an update. I'm out in CT/NY these days. BSP hooked me up for a ride earlier in the season and I raced NA's with Blondie2. Good times. The joke was the one by the McMichaels office had our name on it. You never know.....

    Thanks for confirming. I'm hoping to get my wife over to check them out? Why are they going to have 5 there? Winter storage? I figured they'd have theirs available to check out.
