I've been working on the S Boat painting from the photo I posted a few days ago, and I thought y'all might like to see how it's coming along. It's 12" X 24". I liked the composition of the photo,

Adagio just started the Port Huron to Mackinaw race In her 52'nd year of racing. First large wood-epoxy boat boat built without fasteners. She rates faster than the Santa Cruz 70's.

Does it come with a codpiece?  And I can easily singlehand or cruise with the wife and no crew. I say that a lot when I see an exotic, beautiful car, or a mansion that is just too f'n big

That deckhouse looks kinda Perry-esque.

A handsome boat, but the ass end waterline looks odd..

Btw.

Sorry that I have to get back to 'it' again, but photographer Alexander Panzieri has done the impossible.

He has actually taken a great shot of 'A'.

That is really not bad. For a star destroyer.

Please visit Alexander's portfolio website, he is a really good photographer.

I did and saw this and thought its cool, but wondered if it belongs in the ugly dodger (bimini) thread.  Its a bit big for me but I'd be curious to see what its like to sail in a breeze.

I think by now they should have been able to correct the trim of that thing. :ph34r:

that's right. he sprayed some light over the parts that say "boat" - and hid the jarring angles in shadow.

might the photographer use photoshop? - check out the water..

Isn't that the MoBo that an F1 driver converted to a trimaran?

You're thinking of Nelson Piquet's Pilar Rossi and that is not it:

Are we not looking at a sailing yacht hidden behind a power tri in the picture you are referring to?

This is 'Vrijheid', it was built in the Netherlands in 1931 and refurbed in 2015 - 2017.

What's so special about this boat is, that she is the first boat of 'Kapitein Rob', a dutch cartoon series that was apparently very popular among dutch readers in the fifties and sixties.

As of Tuesday we are now moving ahead with a slightly larger version of this design. Different layout. Longer LOA. Different stern treatment.

Very nice Bob!

That reminded me a bit of 'Heimkehr'

She is a ketched rigged motorsailer from the Elbe river, more here and here. She was sailed extensively by the owner couple in the North Atlantic for six years, going to the Caribbean and New York among other places.

So, here's a question for you. Sailboats typically have a cockpit capable of holding several people. This boat does not, which is fine if its goal is high-latitude cruising.

Looking at the accommodations, it is not designed for a single person.

When underway, but not necessarily on passage, where does a second person sit to see what's going on ahead of the boat?

This question is not unique to this boat. A lot of powerboats have the same issue unless they have a large pilothouse with a forward-facing settee behind the helmsman, or room for a second pilot chair.

It is possible to solve this conundrum, even on a 34-footer like ours.

As with most design decisions, it's a matter of priorities.

Charlie and friends getting some shorthanded sailing in, on some coolboats...

 

Very, very nice, some true rarities in there, Luthis, Psaros, Toucans, Tofinous.

See here for the results and the sail numbers, if you want to identify a specific boat.

You want sail area? You get sail area. 

You also get side decks so you don't drown too often.

The sail area looks like it will more than make up for the side decks.  Fans of drowning will not be bored.

Here is cool boat designed by one of Cruising Anarchy's resident designers, Yves-Marie de Tanton.

This model is a 12-meter (40') MBCC (Modern British Channel Cutter) that was built in steel in Turkey.

Shame about that cabin and coach roof design. She definitely could have been much sweeter looking without any loss of functionality, IMO.

As much of a YMT fan as I am I think I'll go with Sailby on that cabin trunk. That forward raking windshield is a very strong design element and has to be done with finesse and care. It's subjective. I can assure you that this will be a very good sailing boat and that's objective.

[post moved to this more relevant exchange]

As many remark here, a pilothouse with a reverse face can be displeasing; often looks too Tug and not enough Sailboat. (Some make Tug look good.)   And any part of the roof line fighting the sheer will likely make for even less of Sailboat .  Part of too Tug is an often imposing flat face - which at yacht deck level, added to the reverse invites broken (or small, less functional) panes when green water comes aft, the impact concentrated by the no-exit shape.

I proposed the shape as a possible (minus the excess flare aft corner) for the hull (about 68'), rig (75' cutter) and fins shown, as having no workboat flavor, giving green water a way by, and the sheer happy with the roof line.  There's a single curved pane forward and a raised entry aft into a broad potentially bright refuge for cockpit crew. Perhaps unsurprisingly the boat was built with a very handsome & polished pilothouse by Tanton.

Shouldn't there be some end tables with lamps? And a fireplace?

But with the dual-offset-companionways, what does it matter?

that is not a real captain steering - actually a robot. part of the onboard management system that automatically steers, trims the sails, tacks, and jibes. even furls and sets an anchor.

all you need to do is mix your own drinks, and avoid stepping on the roomba down below that keeps the sole all spick and span.

A moderate wave over the bow looks to be disastrous - right down the dual offset companionways and over all that upholstery.

Captain Yul B. Sarri undergoes Wheel Steering tests in the dev lab:

On-the-water trials went well, until Yul fell in love with the chartplotter and together they threw the human crew overboard and sailed to the Caymans, where they have been granted sanctuary. It's a love story for our times: poignant, searching.

Nice windshield.  all’s it needs is a decent set of wheels and an exemption from the DOT for being over 8 feet, a solid Cummings Diesel and a transmission the driver can operate and shel’ll be ready to (as Dinah Shore used to say) “See the USA in your” whatever cause that sure ain’t no Chevrolet.

So that's what modern potato magnates sail? Do the Aryans have a beef with the potato kings?

Seems like strictly a daysailer, lacking even accomodations for trysting, which I always assumed was the true purpose of these boats.

There may be a lesson in S&S design brief: You can't make a catamaran look like DORADE, so don't try?

And 'New England style' I think is more about function than looks. Easier to recognize when it's not. 

Not New England style:

After everything that was put into restoring that boat, what we see there is criminal neglect. That combination of Watson design and Logan construction is pure magic.

If she's been restored recently is she really that far gone or are we in that'll buff out territory?

I'm not really into classic boats, but even I can see that should be beautiful.

I find her near perfect. perhaps an unpopular opinion - but all that unvarnished (and seemingly perfect) teak is just stunning to my eye.

at first I thought this was what was intended. then noticed the growth. oops.
