  1. Elan 310? https://www.scanboat.com/en/boat-market/boats/Sailing-boat-elan-310-17295089
  2. What pretty lines and delicious details. Do you know the designer?
  3. Beautiful photo but are you being dragged by fishing line?
  4. Underbody is reminiscent of a Yankee one design by W. Starling Burgess. But that's a 30 footer.
  5. Is this boat too far gone? https://providence.craigslist.org/boa/d/herreshoff-fife-hinckley/6585390787.html
  6. Continuing the musical drift, last year I heard the young prodigy, Joey Alexander at 13, leading a jazz trio in a program of his own compositions along with those of others. I felt like he was the Mozart of his generation. Here he is at 11.
  7. Not all white boats are boring.
  8. Saw it today at the Annapolis film festival. Great movie for a sailor. Inspiring tale but I was left with a feeling that it had an unnecessarily sad ending.

  10. This sounds something like the Hyuscat about which I posted upthread. It doesn't completely rise out of the water but has semi-planing hulls. Originally, the designers from South Africa didn't want to manufacture. See https://www.boatdesign.net/threads/hydrofoil-supported-catamaran-designs.21189/ but now they have products available. They offer a 23 foot RIB (http://www.hysucat.com/model/6-8m-rigid-inflatable-boat/) which gets 6 mpg at 25 knots. I don't know how they are built but that RIB weighs 2000 lbs. Not sure about cost but I think it's pricey since they talk about how it's worth the ex
  11. That's similar to this relic sitting at city dock. Wondered about that mast-like stump.
  12. That Skoota 28 power cat looks perfect. Gets 7 mpg at 10 - 15 knots.
