Oh, and I’ve got a Ron H. I hear what people say about blade rudders, but a well built spade rudder has a lot going for it.

We owned a Cal 2-27: Bill Lapworth. It was a great coastal and buoy racing boat. We now have a Kaufman 47 Cutter: Michael Kaufman; built for passage making.

Re: Who's you favorite yacht architect?

William Atkin, when he didn't draw double-enders. Though if I had to have a double-ender, it would be an Ingrid.

Lyle Hess, esp. the Falmouth 34

Paul Gartside

Each of these knew the art of drawing a true full keel that actually performs well; for that sort of boat, they're at the top of the heap.

Steve designed the 56/60/64 boats that were built by TPI - 64 pictured above right.
Beowulf was Steve's own last sailboat.

Re: Who's you favorite yacht architect?

So many good designers. Another good one is Mark Ellis who designs both sail and power. A master of the sheer line. Learned his stuff from Rhodes, Hood, and S&S so not a surprise.
