Interesting project. If you have not been following along, definitely worth a look.

Re: Adventure 40

It's almost a "crowd-source" design in that while the site owner has very definite ideas about what counts as basic, a lot of people have made constructive suggestions that have evolved the design. Disclaimer: This is the only boat forum I've paid to join. The quality of the discourse is exceptional, as is the general level of experience.

Re: Adventure 40

I joined too, largely due to the Adventure 40 project.

It is a really nice spin on trying to put a concrete answer to the seen-it-a-million-times "what makes a bluewater boat" thread. Each aspect of the boat was discussed in detail by some pretty knowledgeable individuals. It has been fun watching it develop.

Re: Adventure 40

I love the idea and I think this kind of ideas may/will work.

I am not so sure about their assumptions though.

Re: Adventure 40

To me the process is more interesting than the end result. The discussions and argument along the way, in the articles and especially comments. I learned a ton reading them. Great info for how to outfit any boat for cruising.
