Thanks for that photo. I saved it and it is now my new favorite.

Re: Who's your favorite Celebrity Sailor

by generations of mind-numbed readers who confuse detective novels, science fiction, sappy historical novels and romance tripe with true literature. Good luck and good reading.

Ach, what great fun!!!

I love sea stories.

I love all the ones you mentioned, too, except for: romance tripe

How would you know?

I agree with the good reading.

Re: Who's your favorite Celebrity Sailor

What about L. Ron Hubbard. He owned several power boats.



Just kidding of course.

But, just in case "they" are watching I'll make sure to double lock the doors tonight.

Who's your favorite Celebrity Sailor

I have been following with great interest the sale of Morgan Freeman's boat, a Shannon 43, on Yachtworld. While a nice boat for sure, his broker is asking for minimum 500K bids to even be considered. This is about twice what comparable Shannon 43's are going for currently. Now, I like Morgan as much as the next guy, but I just don't see myself paying a quarter million dollar extra just to have his boat.

never really liked the sheer of the Shannon lines, too flat. From certain views, they appear slab sided. For the price one would expect better lines, like Hinckley's or Oyster's yards produce. A boat builder can radically alter sweet lines the designer put down to make a rather dull boat.

Re: Who's your favorite Celebrity Sailor

Haha. Just remembered I was up in Connecticut and someone pointed to the boat in the background and said this guy owned it. Apparently he is quite serious about sailing.
