Well, the longtail motor system is ugly as hell, and probably dangerous. Apart from that, it's a good-looking little boat.

I wear socks when the weather gets cool. I wear Filson, medium weights. They are the world's best sock and,,,,,,they come in my size. Spike was the one who taught me about them. It's a PNW thing to wear socks with sandals.

That Kutter is very cool.

AFAIK, it's a pretty ancient german thing to wear socks with sandals.

In a former life, some of the scientists I worked with wore knee-length black socks, shorts, suit/sports coat, plus white shirt & tie when they had meetings with their budget people.

They looked like they shopped at Geeks Unlimited.

I was working in Marine Research at the time.

They kind of dressed like this, but with wing-tip shoes...

Bob, Bob, Bob - socks with sandals? PUHLEEEZE - that is NOT a PNW (or PSW) thing, that is strictly a dork thing, along the lines of The Full Nanaimo (white tie, white belt, white shoes).

If it is cool enough for socks, it is too cool for sandals and deck shoes should be worn.

That whole "Business Bermudas" thing is just insanely dorky, even IN Bermuda.

Pretty sure it is an English tradition, when in the Antipodes. I think maybe the Romans started it off in ancient, Britain.

My homeland… I used to dress like that every day, didn’t seem the least bit dorky at the time.

For about a year in the 80's I had a full 12" mohawk (black and white or blue or green vertical stripes like a zebra) that can be directly attributed to those socks.

I'd get that mohawk again tomorrow but never again the socks.
