Re: Does anyone see the beauty?

Do I see any beauty in this boat? No, none in its function, none in its appearance.
'Drawing' boats is almost as easy as posting to forums, doesn't mean much.

Re: Does anyone see the beauty?

Yes. Clearly looks like something from her desk.

I like it - looks organic and flowing. Sort of like one of those amazing plankton forms.

The boat I do not like is the one built for Jobs. And I bet Herreshoff would be on my side.

Re: Does anyone see the beauty?

I find the shape appealing as a piece of art but the practicality of it for a boat leaves a bit to be desired.

I was going to buy it but 128 meters is just too small.

Re: Does anyone see the beauty?

It has potential! The main thing I don’t like about it is the design is not even/centrically and a little to busy. If I could change the design! I do prefer boats that are sleek looking! But my wife bought an UGLY old trawler.

Re: Does anyone see the beauty?

As an artwork it is something our government would probably pay a fortune for, therefore by definition UGLY!

Those of you who think it looks like a sex toy have been at sea for WAY to long, unless I haven't been at sea long enough!

I don't think you can assume the standard depreciation on driving out of the lot, if that's how you sold it to your other half, make sure they get it in the divorce. (It's coming).

Re: Does anyone see the beauty?

the reverse bow looks stupid .. not to mention increases the chance of the boat becoming a submarine. the rest of it looks like something from the batman movie.

Re: Does anyone see the beauty?

For a slow full displacement boat a straight or reverse bow is becoming more popular as it increases the over all length on the water. On a larger boat that can mean fast hull speed and/or better fuel economy. The common long sleek stern sloping bow increased dock space/cost, and reduces the hull speed.

Also for a warm climate boat having some sort of over heat structure would added some shade. If we where in warmer climates to cool the boat we would have a canvas to shade the teak deck which gets quite warm/.hot in the summer.

I do not like the present look/design, but the boat has some good potential and ideas.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder even if its being viewed by a blind man......

Re: Does anyone see the beauty?

I think it was designed by someone who doesn't like to use a long board to fair long sleek sides. Looks like you could get that thing shiny with a DA and a hand board.
