You missed my point I specifically wasn't comparing a 1 million euro boat with ones more than half that value.

Sure I've seen tayanas delaminate, big issues with a HR etc there isn't a boat made where there's not issues. Want I am continuously trying to say is that benes and others will get you where you want to go. The rest is tweaking and the skipper.

shortly after, we heard the weather report of 17 foot seas every 13 seconds..
and as we were tucked away in a safe harbor, and sipping on tomato soup and fresh baked biscuits, I started wondering how those still out in that crap on the rocky coast were doing..
I'm not saying that everybody should be sailing a Fast boat, Just like cars, some drive a Porsche, and some like to drive an old ford truck..
And safety is what you make of it.. If you think you will get caught out in the big blue crap and need a steel boat, well thats your choice..
As I said, Your Choice............
West coast , 12 hours, Fort Bragg? I dont understand...??

Not been my experience in.the last three years in three oceans. Perhaps at one time there were lots of T37s out here, not now. There are not a lot of any one model cruising, but there seem to be many Amels (there are two within 100 feet of me now in Richards Bay) and there were about five in the Sail Indonesia rally.

Looks like some local Chilean guy went and bought a Catalina 320 for sailing in the canals.

I never got around to scanning photos of my boat, so here is what she looks like...just so you know it isn't all talk.

Absolutely beautiful.

I've always thought that wooden boats look sexier without their planks.

Is that weird?

I can just imagine you sidling up to a wooden boat and whispering in her port "Go On, can i see your brown bits" But to answer your question, bloody well right it's weird, but admirable.

It's a little weird. Believe it's a condition known as nodecraphilia.
