    Aging gracefully

    Thanks :cool:
    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 :cool: 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 ;)
