Re: What's Your Dream Boat ?

I have mine also-- a Bristol 38.8. I wouldn't turn up my nose at a Morris 45 (see below) or a Cherubini Ketch, but I'll never be rich enough. I would also consider a Seawind 41 catamaran, but those don't qualify as classics quite yet.

I love the Morris' but don't understand the pricing.

Do you understand the pricing for Oyster? Hinckley? Rolls Royce? Bentley?

I suppose it's one of those "if I could afford it I'd understand". Maybe.

Aluminium cat, A-frame rig, roller furling main, jib and screecher, dagger boards, kickup rudders, twin outboards. Close to perfect for us!

The headsails sweep the deck with no gap. Better sailing, as long as you don't fall out The M-42 that the link shows is somewhere around $1M so I hope they finish them!

Also without lifelines but who would want to leave the comfort of the cockpit?

They don't even have hand holds on the Friendship! The Morris is self tacking and both have clean decks so I guess you don't often have to go out there.

Well if we're talking daysailers then the Hinckley DS 42 does it for me.

Hinckley - DS42

Re: What's Your Dream Boat ?

I already own her! - Allied 39' Sloop, the design was later sold and became the Hinkley 41 with an extended stern.
Check out the pics at www.allied39.blogspot.com She is ready to go again, after I did some further refitting (ie: all new thru-hulls, new chainplates and hardware, etc..) being the third owner now she has many sea mile under her keel and many more still to come. The nicest lines of any boat ever built (I think anyway)...
