Other than that I love Chris White designs but that alone would not lead me to buy one.

I like the concept 63 because it is center cockpit. Check it out. Not front cockpit.

A Yapluka would have to be the ultimate machine and the Privilege 745 would have to be up there too. The Captain would love a Gunboat 62 go fast boat but we will both be thrilled if we can achieve a Dolphin 460 one day..........soon!!!

Cheers

I ate at a Chinese food place last evening and the fortune cookie said that there was a Dolphin in your future. It also said that once you get this boat you will then dream of yet a bigger boat...

This reminds me... Once somebody had asked me what the definition of a "yacht" is. I've noticed that nobody (myself included) ever considers their own boat a "yacht", but we'll call some big fancy boat that. That's when it struck me... A yacht is any boat bigger than your own...

I can tell you what I will never get...an aluminum boat. Ultimately, no paint sticks to aluminum and they sound like you are floating around in a metal dumpster.

David, that's Damn near the best descriptiion of an aluminum boat that I've ever heard.......... you've given me a "belly" laugh that I needed today!!!!..... I guess I was trying to visualize me floating around the Caribbean in a dumpster....... but please, God, make sure I've got plenty of Captain Morgan with me !!!

I walk backwards off the dock everytime I leave, just to get that last glance of her. The boat that I have is my dream boat... For certain it probably is not everyones, but I fell in love with her. I would not trade her for anything.. and when I am done working on her she will be everything I have ever dreamed of... I only think of my 4 kids and my wife of 33 years more than Tivoli. She is a 40 foot Far East Mariner.. I know, I know, another boat from the the orient, Yokosuka, Japan to be excact.. But remember, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. She sails well, she is strong, she is beautiful, safe and will take Paula and I to our dreams..... God, how mushy can I get..

Well...Not liking to have crew is a major for me and the lines of the Cabo Rico's cause my heart to skip a beat.

Re: DREAM BOAT

Built my dream cat - a cross between Chris White 57 and the Gunboat 62. A 3 year build, with quite a bit of help, I am pleased with the result.
See details of the build and the finished item, still adding things all the time, off around the world in 15 months time
