I’m pretty sure the booty would pay for the boat

Re: Yes!!! That is awesome!

As to those 3 boats, (well, 2 boats and 1 ship).
The first is quite typical of a good amount of the production from Herreshoff.
A "Gentlemans' daysailer", as it were, compared to boats built to the scantling rules of Nevins or Lloyds the Herreshoffs' were more lightly built.
The second boat would take you about anywhere if you wish to invoke the days of Slocum.
The third one could use 2>3 cannon on each side, and you'd have to learn the names of several sails, and the usage of a couple of miles of lines.

Keep the end with the hole pointed away from you would seem to be appropriate advice.

Hmmm...

Did I notice that the video of the "tall ship under full sail" seemed to show her motoring along with sails wrinkled and not drawing? Picturesque but not very convincing that she would be a great cruising boat, Thomas.

There may, admittedly, be concessions with the tall ship.

There are trade offs with any boat. Probably not the best in light air, but far better than a Catalina 34 at plundering.

You'd be a slave to the maintenance of a tall ship or most of the other boats you like.

While a Catalina 34 would mostly take care of itself.

Back in the day, they had full crews to work those old tall ships all day whereas today you can sail RTW solo with just small amounts of maintenance.....

with the right boat.

In the video, she is sailing in upwind in a rather narrow inlet.

Try that on a ancient tall ship.

Re: Yes!!! That is awesome!

The Herreshoff is absolutely gorgeous of course, but I love that Lugger. Many years ago I had a friend with a similar boat. She was really wonderful to sail. There is definitely something about sailing a wooden boat (and I've only sailed on two so far) that is far superior to fiberglass, and I can't quite define it. They way it feels, sounds, responds... I don't know, but I can see how folks can say the extra hassle of wood is worth it. And that Lugger looks beautiful to my eye: rugged and simple. That big one might be nice as a training ship for kids, but gotta figure at least $100,000 a year in upkeep. Actually that's an old number, probably more now.

Re: Yes!!! That is awesome!

By the way, does anyone know what that dog bone thing is hanging on the chain on the bow and how it is used? I wonder if that is the same thing we were trying to identify in another thread a while back. Anyone from Cornwall here??
