It must be British. If It was from a US company it would have had golden arches instead of a mast.

The British are very British in what regards boats and other things, meaning they don't like too much changes, regarding boats, Europe and many things. That give them a strong charterer and a great culture but almost ended up with their yacht building Industry and car Industry. We have come to the point were actually the British are buying French boats and on the last years even being making some boats that even the French like. Things are changing on the other side of the channel, at least in what regards boats

Jeez, I'm not on an oldy, but even I know Jethro Tull is the name of a band, not a person. Their lead singer, and the rockinest flautist of all time, is Ian Anderson.

Ian Anderson blows!

+1!!! Of course, without these capital-B "Bluewater" threads, we'd have a much harder time figuring out who the boat snobs are.

(Check out Post # 101 on this thread if you don't understand boat snobbery.)

So ask yourself why "Bluewater" is always capitalized on these threads.

considering brass thru-hulls unsuitable is hardly boat snobbery

unless your motto is "only the snobs survive"
