This guy’s boat?Every time I see a Pearson Triton or Vanguard or an Alberg 30, or an early Rhodes like the Swiftsure or the 29, or an early Bill Tripp, like the Seafarer 31, or the Pearson Renegade, I get all twitchy. And I drool a little. And I start thinking that maybe I should buy one. Or two (because they do tend to be cheap). But ugh, I do not like how they sail, and there is no way I'm giving up my walk-through transom. I do really love to see them though. At dock, underway, on poppits in the yard; whatever.
Once during one of my many boat searches, I came across a Triton for sale. I showed it to Mrs. Hukilau, and her response was "it looks like Popeye's boat". And not in a good way. I resolved then to not include her in any boat shopping ever again.
