I've owned daysailers since and still love them. A Flying Scott with a spinaker up is tons of fun. No hate here.
LOL... no hate here either mate... maybe a little ego..
But to me a galley is a 2 burner + grill, sink, and small worktop... and I have a sea toilet... and it takes me places..

At any rate, here's the plane I bought plans for, but never got around to build (or had the time and money, etc...): index.html
Another taildragger that looks a lot like yours.
Snort: Well I obviously didn't marry Carole Bouquet and I'm glad you like my choices. I thought you might be interested to know that there is another link to our discussion.

My nephew has worked for Van's as a welder for the last 15 years and has recently began to work on the help desk and to fly various RV's all over the US to do airshows. What a lucky guy.

Thanks for the response.

Re: One boat I've loved and why...

I always come back to the BCC28. "Go simple, go small, go now". I've only ever been on one once many years ago at the Newport Boat Show. It was super-blustery that day, and while all the other boats were pulling at their dock lines like impatient thoroughbreds ready to exit the starting gate, the BCC28 sat there as still as can be like it was on pilings. Rock solid. I love the look, the feel, the elegant simplicity and the brilliant utilization of space.

If I were to leave on a RTW cruise tomorrow, that's the boat I'd want. But then when I think about long-term LIVING on a boat - while otherwise living a "normal"/land-based existence - I start looking at the comfy floating condos.

Small and go now to me is a Chevy 3500 Silverado 1 ton long bed and a Lance or Arctic fox truck camper!
