Pretty Cat, Ugly Cat

I've seen some pretty cats and some not so pretty ones. I though it would be fun for froum members to post their favs for each category. They don't have to be expensive or cheap just what you like or don't like and the boats don't have to be fantastic sailers or the opposite. For instance,
I've always liked the lines of the FP Bahia. It looks good from any angle.
I never liked the Edel 35 or any of the older Edels. The newer ones do look pretty cool. Edel pic is first as if you couldn't tell.

Re: Pretty cat, Ugly cat

Any chance of you guys polling the membership and then screening the entries for member ownership? I have a feeling this will turn out badly.

Should someone mention your craft in the ugly category, please disagree respectfully folks after all opinions are like digestive systems, everyone has one.

Re: Pretty cat, Ugly cat

This seems to be something of a juvenile exercise. Is the point here to see how many people we can piss off by calling their boats ugly?

Sorry, that's not a game I want to play, and I don't think it contributes to what we're trying to accomplish with Cruisers' Forum.

Re: Pretty cat, Ugly cat

This isn't going to work for me. If it floats it looks good to me. It has more than one hull it looks even better to me. If it is covered in solar panels it looks like the future to me.


If it is a gunboat it looks good to everybody.

Re: Pretty Cat, Ugly Cat

I say the most expensive multihulls almost always look great ( I love the Gunboats ) but in the real world of more affortable boats under $400,000.00 what looks great? In the catagory of under $120,000.00 our Gemini 105Mc looks great and it's paid for , in today's world paid for is really sexie

I sure can't argue that logic. That is why 30-year-old Prout Snowgoose looks so good to me. Now if I completely cleaned out my cruising budget, the SMG 50 that is currently for sale for $540,000 would in fact be my dream boat. I think the A-frame mast is the future of sailing with all sails furling. Hybrid diesel electric drive is something else that I consider is the future of sailing, being able to recharge your house batteries while under sail. when not needing to charge your batteries, you enjoy increased sailing performance. Not to mention the fact that you're keeping the heavy weight of the diesel engine centered in the hull.

Re: Pretty Cat, Ugly Cat

I hope it doesn't piss anyone off, but that cat on the right is one ugly cat.

Re: Pretty Cat, Ugly Cat

The one with hair causes alergies more so I'll chose the one on the right, I wouldn't miss it when it fell off my multi-hull

I prefer cats with all their ears intact.

I don't have allergies though so I go for what is under the skin. If that brown cat could be trained to LISTEN I could live with it.

Maverick is ugly but that is only the skin.

Antares 44i is "outhouse" like but under the skin...................

Hard to point at wives, lovers etc.

I'll still love my Gem even if someone buys her.
