And that was the baby. You should have seen the parents!
Totally agree with the sail drive issue. Give me a shaft, prop and inside engine any day. Engines under the bunk is far more protected and easier to maintain. We just moved two Seawind 1250,s, one engine under a very well insulated and vented aft berth and other behind shower (but with saildrives). Another great addition was the blue underwater lights in the stern. I have always scoffed at these lights but alas, they are a great asset when owner was required to take a frequent dip in Asian waters to remove fishing lines/nets from the sail drives. My ideal boat would have a shaft and a small rudder skeg with a wire rope from the keel to the skeg to deflect the debris. The older Leopards with shafts are great (noisy) but the newer models are a far better sailing boat.
