AMEN!!

Little Monkey that there be a Roberts for true! The stern arch leaves me cold, but other than that she'd be a fine boat for ya' and you'd get to start spending REAL dollars!

The corten steel leaves me cold, that is a waste of money and not really a good thing, but it's a good design, sea kindly. You will hate the Lexan, it clouds up in a couple of years and needs to be replaced. I still like laminated glass better, but that's me. If she's foamed inside, buy her!

Ahhh with what. This monkey is chair bound =(. I'd replace window with acrylic. Boat is too damn big for a monkey anyway. Need something between 24 and 36. 32 a good size.

Oh little monkey, I already told you, move your chair down to the Wharf, bring your cello serenade the tourists with case open to let the gold flow in. For added effect wear pirate costume and sing sea chanties while playing cello! Failing that, write the novel I already outlined for you! Where there's a will, there is always a way. Remember: ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING!!

except i dont play cello - i write for cello el sid capppy Y66 of the phiilly-penes.

Salty monkey is intrigued by cat ketches with wishbone rigs these days...and wonders if one could be a horn bagger. He also desires a OVNI and plays his lotto ticket 2x a week while he hangs low awaiting an end to winter.

Hope you were warm and toasty in Napa while it rained this weekend.

an alternative is a boat with wide decking and easy cabin access---is why the hinterhoeller an d herrreschoff-- fewer steps to interior, i presume? also they ar pretty and sail nicely. easy and functional-- good choices.

Actually I was quite comfortable here in Cebu, Philippines. Life is grand here.

I'm not a fan of carbon fiber masts. They are conductors or electricity, but the resin that holds them together isn't, so if you take a lightening hit the resin melts and mast is ruined and those puppies are very, very, very pricey. I'd stick with AL or steel personally. Ditto CF booms. I think the racing crowd is in love with such things, but they are the same guys who replace their winches every year or so. I can't begin to keep up with those deep pocket guys.

Little monkey, whatever shall we do with you? I thought you played the cello, sorry, but even a banjo would work, ya' know? Just remember, ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING!

Tata from paradise, there's a couple of girls banging on my door.

Laters.

Thomas

Y66 is an enigma....he is hither and then he is thither...frolicking an dancing here and there like a wind-generator.

Oh well...we await another rainy day...dreaming of purple boats, and gun mounted spinnakers. Someday someday...a boat for saltymonkey

lots of shrouds

..but I kind of like having something to hold on to. They are probably cheaper than carbon also.
