    I'm not sure that it would work that well on a small boat, but it would be nice if it did.


    Same here :) one day...

    I always thought the Midnight Lace boats were beautiful, I know theyre a bit odd and over the top, but they have some charm and originality to them, if I only had a picture. Please feel free to post a pic if you have one, I really appreciate it.

    They are nice, just a bit too much gingerbread cluttering up clean lines, but gorgeous overall, esp interiors.

    For those interested in beautiful Sailing Yachts they should check out the P-boat Valiant designed by NG Herreshoff, and the M-boat Istalena designed by his son L Fransis Herreshoff.

    I take it the aft mast is photoshoped in? Not a lot to support the mast transversely, but the image is striking! You've succeeded in creating something beautiful.

    When I lived out on the coast I visited a marina over on Vancouver island there was a Bruce Roberts 65 sail boat called the "Prairie Lady" It was a home built Roberts design by a school teacher in Calgary Alberta and then when the guy retired he trucked the boat from Calgary to Seattle then sailed it to April point ,She was beautiful had a normal rig with a mizzen sail and painted candy apple red and each room was done in a different wood one teak,one oak,and so on man it was beautiful but unfortunately I lost my pictures of her but maybe someone over there would have one she was a true beauty (in my humble opinion)
