You are welcome to see Brigadoon in Port Townsend this winter.Dave:
No, not sure where it is. I do remember the boat. A taiwanese owner just bought TOUCAN, a local boat, and sailed it back to Taiwan. He has nothing but praise for the boat after a demanding, heavy air passage. They are fabulous boats,,,,until you want to back up. Bow thruster recommended. The PH version is one of my best designs. Great layout.
There are PH Tayana 37's around. A PH Baba 35 would suit you just fine as would a Tashiba 36 PH but they are hard to find.

Tricky Pig and I raced with Donn and Keri in the Race Your House race. We finished second boat for boat in our class, beating a lot of bigger more modern designs. We kicked ass.

Hideous flow behind the mast with those things, they look like speed disruptors.Reflex Sailor, do you mean any roller furling main or just this type external to the mast? I suppose some area is lost due to no battens and the shape probably isn't the greatest. The quickness and simplicity of roller furling is appealing, though.
