A fine fellow
@MauiPunter I get your point, but as
an old fart a mature fellow, I would feel comfortable in the Herreshoff for hours on end; in one of those pictured above, no.
Yea, I totally get it. I too would enjoy the H boats. More relaxing. The sport boats seem like work.@MauiPunter I get your point, but as

I've put the mast in the water on a lake 1.5 miles by 3. Gone from 3kts wind to 65 in -- not joking -- five seconds. The flat-cockpit daysailers pictured are specifically intended for mountain lakes like Garda, Geneva, and Como; and anyone who has sailed on Tahoe, Dillon, or Granby in the US has stories about sudden microbursts from completely random directions, often out of a blue sky. I like nice deep benches you can brace across when the world goes katabatic.Brisk conditions? It's a lake boat.
Yeah, you would. At least on the VX1, you would. It's one of the most comfy boats I've ever sailed, of any size.Yea, I totally get it. I too would enjoy the H boats. More relaxing. The sport boats seem like work.
Dad's fallen off. Quick run down and grab the lifebuoy.
Work. The curse of the drinking class.The sport boats seem like work.
Indeed. I just got this to replace my kids' Lego ships:Work. The curse of the drinking class.
Missed one, worst case of weather helm since the advent of IOR.Most uncomfortable helm seat.
Most uncomfortable crew seating.
Worst ergonomics for crew work.
Worst toilet facilities.
Not a candidate for ugly dodger thread, however.
Crowther Bucaneer 33, I'm pretty sure.
I wonder if that's the same boat as "Island Star" now moored in Ma'alea.I sailed on a Custom Columbia 50 in Maui cira 1978 named Fire Bird, sure looks like this one.
That's a Columbia 57.
