Oh, I do get out of the marina a lot. And I do anchor (to go for a Swim). But I wonder where on the North Sea Coast are these anchorages where you can leave yachts for days unattended everybody here seems to assume exist in plentiful supply.

In the med I do anchor a lot. But if bad weather is predicted I do head for a harbor.

Re: Modern Production Cruisers at Sea

Actually the forestay in many productions boats are fited to a proper chainplate in the bow, thats the case of many beneteaus, and with that kind of furlers going inside of anchor lockers same, are fited to internal chainplates , but also i see awful ways in older boats to mount a forestay, example many old c&c`s furlers are mounted to a aluminium bow plate trough bolted to the deck ... Just saying...

True, I have never been called "typical"

I do not think its any more difficult to plank a double ended boat. Probably easier in some ways laying out the rabbet cut and plank lines on a double ended. Transoms can be a real pain to lay out especially when the are curved and not plumb. That sure doesn't help us much here today

Having built and restored more than one woodie I can defo say that transom are vastly more difficult and structurally complicated to build and canoe sterns. Bending planks is easy and so is scribing them. If you have a hard turn up to your stern it is nothing a steam box, chain clamps and some extra hands can't sort out. It is more a brute force and technique problem.

Whereas a beautifully built and strong transom is design, detail, craftsmanship and time.
