Id not come across the newer Moody 45 DS boats until this week, I think these boats demonstrate the thinking of new builders from here on so much that the new fantastic plastics dont have any need for nautical memorabilia, the fantales splashrails taffrails and trailboards will soon be forever gone. Not too far from now, boats like this CT just wont be around anymore.
The CT's and Ta Chiao boats had the lines from reputable designers, and they carried with them a unique perhaps somewhat crass style that continued below. Most of them seem not to be in so good a shape now, indeed many are at or very near the point of scrapping.
I guess what Im saying is, anyone that likes them enough to find a worthwhile proposition and restore her, might be doing us all a service
larger then the sum of the parts
