I was talking with my girlfriend yesterday about general 'impressions' you get from first viewings of certain boats. We looked at a MacGregor
65' and she said "sexy, that's a sexy boat." We then looked at a Roberts aft pilothouse schooner, and she said "thats a classy, party boat good for socializing with the big foredeck and old-school sails
." Then we looked at my boat, and she said "your boat doesn't look sexy, classy or social. Your boat looks like it's ready for a fight, and it's going to win that fight!"
I laughed pretty hard, but that's pretty much how I view my boat. I think I place this Colvic Watson in that same category. It's ready for a fight, and it's going to win that fight.
