    Ya- that's what I mean captain- as designs evolve we will look back all teary eyed at the nice traditional Jobs job...

    I think the Wally and Palladin design concepts are interesting although the Wally is hardly feasible.
    Perhaps on a lake as a houseboat but can you image trying to drive it in a heavy following sea...scary

    The Opalinski Design style doesn't do it for me, the hull has some great built in stress points and the wrinkles are remenisant of the mating Armidillos.

    Couple of views of Venus under way sent to me today, hasn't improved any

    Sorry guys, but the more I look at it, the more ugly it gets... :eek:

    Ah gee, I was just going to suggest Lake Como as a suitable venue - floating resturant & night cruising.
    I'm sure it would fit right in with the PS/SJ pedigree

    I could not help noticing in the photo that the bow is protected by the "zee kameel 1". Although I cannot argue that the risk of breaking the glass bow before final delivery is something worth avoiding. I believe it is probably also indicative of how careful the owner will have to be with it as well.

    So this leaves two options:
    1) risk having an over enthusiastic boat owner ram his boat into the bow every time you manoeuvre in port. (assuming its own captain does not make a similar mistake)
    2) Have a butt ugly bow protecter....

    In the Netherlands the water is shallow. Normally, with deep sailing yachts , when Ive docked into a CAMEL it lifts you up, bow and stern, reducing draft then a tug pulls you out the harbour into the Ijsselmeer, to Kornwerderzand and deep water.

    Not sure what yard built that "thing"

    It is quite certain that Jobs would not have accepted any protecters.

    I'm not sure the bow protector isn't my favorite part of the boat.

    BTW i showed the 2 pics to all the ladies in my family and they all think Steve's boat is ugly. They all really liked the "fantail" boat.

    So it's simple, if you have lots of money and want to attract beautifull women build a beautiful boat. :D
