    As I remember it, the designer (who I won't name unless he wants to be named) used to be a regular here, but I haven't noticed him for a while.......

    Yes Ulstein have designed some beautiful and fuctional ships. BUT to say the back end is good is not so clever! I do not like the 'bus stop' idea around the crash barrier on the after deck, better an open style with pipes at waist height and above (room to get through anywhere) believe you me whan that big wave comes up the deck or the crane misjudges it and swings the load you need to be able to dive through the barrier where you are not run around looking for a hole in the wall - if you can't go through NOW you are dead meat mate! I've lost a couple of friends like that in the old days, and nearly added to the list a couple of times myself to! No 'bus stops' are not functional or safe! Hey remember the days of Pelican hooks on anchor jobs! If not Raggi go find an old Supply Boat Sailor (preferably a Steersman/mate) and ask him! he'll tell you a tale or two!:p :D

    Walrus(?), I didn't know that.
    Don't you think safety has been improved lately by other means?
    I have never worked on a boat like that.

    "Can anyone find a more beautiful boat?"

    Luisa and I just returned from a lovely Sunday afternoon at the Herreshoff Museum in Bristol, RI., ... our 10 hundredth visit. :) (We only live 15 minutes away.)

    Beautiful boats? Where do I start?

    I have been a lurker here for awhile gleening the fantastic information available to maintain my viking longboat replica. So first, thank you for all of your help even though you didn't give it to me per se. You all are a fountain of knowledge and I know many of us lurkers appreciate you.

    Now as for beautiful boats, I must offer my own for consideration. I did not build her, she was purchased from a man name Kerry Eikenskold (www.ravenkraft.com) and he is a craftsman for whom I can't give enough praise.

    What can I say? It was love at first sight.

    Viking - what a lovely little foureen (or smaller!) love it!

    Raggi - totally agree, the invention of Karm Forks (mainly Norwegian I might add) and other such useful bits of kit have made great strides in supply vessel safety! but there is still the odd occasion when the need to jump through the 'crash barrier' is paramount and IF it's a bloody great big steel plate.............need I say more!

    Nice Vega, if your into that sort of thing - quite a little(?) classic by the looks of it!

    Unfortunately as you know unless it's got sticks and big bits of canvas I ain't but, tis still a nice bit of kit all the same

    The rig is certainly beautiful. Noticed it on YW of january.

    I know it's called a clipper, but because there are no foresails, I get associations to viking vessels. Even if the masts are taller, have more sails and more masts. It somehow looks like a (much) modernised viking boat.

    And I like it!

    I would like to see a design similar, but on a much smaller boat, oh, and without all the electricity.

    But then again, I would also like to see modern gaffers with all the carbon fibre and titanium a boy could wish for.
