    Who did that? I spoke to Rob M last week and he didn't mention any foredeck-less boats (although the issue didn't come up).

    Not as aesthetic as the standard stunning timber foredeck, IMHO. Great boat though; I particularly love the seat; looks way more comfortable than mine (although not in light beats when I like to get right forward on the seat).

    Are you doing a DC? Phil's seems to be going very well but I haven't raced it or seen it since it was still under build.

    How about this one. I know it is only a painting, but it is also a dream boat:)

    Now that is beautiful! with a capital B - funnily enough the 'wallpaper' on the computer I'm using to type this has a 'sister' of that one in the middle - good old Bombigheir or however he spells his name - an artist as well as a designer! (when he died the boating world lost a truly remarkable man!) :)

    SailDesign Old Phart! Stay upwind..

    Raggi, if you are going to post Reimers' boats, at least have the decency to include a Tumlaren. PLEASE!!!! My all-time favourite boat.
    Vega, you are right about Bombigher (or however...). A great fella with a clean eye, even if it was a bit overly romantic at times (and aren't we all?).
    For beauty, I'll take this one - one of my Dad's designs from the 70's, "Samanthe". The people will show the scale :)
