i.e.
You know how in real estate sales, there are companies that will "stage" a vacant house, i.e. bring in some furniture and accessories to make it look nice? Well, when you see so many boats like this one that have that je ne sais quoi look about them, I wonder if there are companies that will provide that look for you, the seller of your dream boat.

First time I've seen grass growing inside a boat.

Maxx - isn't this one of Plavsic's Ariel 48's? If so it's more like 30 years old than 15. Did any of them get finished?

Sorta looks like that SJB. But Vlad wasn't a naval architect; just a architect that raced, sailed and loved boats. I thought they did two of them with his partner Ghengis. I always wondered what happened to those boats. I see Vlad's, son - Zack, all the time as Kanata is just down the dock from  me at the club moorage.

Looks like he studied thousands of buckets.

But now that I've mocked a bit, I have to point out this pic:

He made a ridiculous boat and played with it. Lots of them never seem to get to that last part.

So it might also be a candidate for Admiration by the Society. I admire the attention to detail in bucket handle orientation.

Something so sad about spending 20 years and $52,000 to get a part finished rusting pile of steel plate that requires a disclaimer.
