Aging gracefully

Thanks
It is pretty nice for forty years old. Lock did a great job when he designed it.
I am getting it ready for launching, I think it will look even better in the water.

First in the water pics!

Finally!
I don't have all the gear on it yet, but it really floats high. Patrick and crew must have really built a light boat I am very pleased. I expect I will get her equipped and sailing in about a week and I will try to post some more photos then.

Awesome! Like a balloon! Calm water makes it seem even crazier on top of water!

what is in a name?

Thanks Patrick, it warms mine too You did a very good job on her, and I have just tried to put her back together correctly. (Maybe with a few modern improvements ). I expect she will be sailing well into the future. I haven't put any name on her, but I am having some graphics made with "PF II", and "Robinox" made up that I will install later this season. Locally, it is a bit fun to keep people guessing for a little while

Crowther for sale

Thanks guys, I am proud of my boat
On another note- There is a Crowther Tempest 33 for sale in Miami Florida that in the photos looks pretty decent, particularly for under $10K US. I know nothing of the boat, it just appeared on Craig's list. I think the owner might own a Buc 33 on the US west coast so he must like Crowthers
