    why does it say j-24 style? hull doesn't even look like a j-24.

    fatdog, the correct answer is jboats should be more upset. they have a reputation to protect.

    Do you mean to say that airplane design principles do not apply directly to sailboat design??? :eek: In the world according to Frank, they are one and the same.

    Why would you want coffee grinders on something so slow?

    So you can enjoy a freshly grinded cup of coffee? :D

    But seriously. It looks nice but there is something missing...

    Why is it NOT "shocking pink"?

    oh and about the tiller, fits nice in De Ridder's Mumm30 & Farr 40 line. Except of course this TP52 ain't a Farr design...

    "UMMMM interesting question... but why don't the mac 26 have them neither? "

    Maybe its got electric winches like a supermaxi because the loads generated while sailing in the 4th mode are too great for any human powered winches.

    I reckon it would look good with a Mac26 style wheel

    $1325 USD, folks, or about what we in Canada pay for a nice kicker motor. To think I could have a whole cutting-edge racing yacht for what my neighbour paid for his new Merc kicker!

    This was posted a little while back. Since the guy's right, and you all ignored him, I'll quote it again:
    Are we clear, now, that the Mac 26 and TP 52 are NOT comparable boats? Frank especially, are you clear on that?

    Your best example would be the Cal 40s. These were designed to prove that a boat with cruising accomodations could be a racer. We also have examples from the production boat builder Hunter. Many of their models have identical hulls but the racing version is fitted with gear differently. At South Sound Sailing Society, Tony Rey took a cruising Hunter and replaced the gear with racing equipment. The result was a win in Swiftsure and a place the next year.

    I wish to point out now that most boats over 45 foot are good power boats. The yacht clubs oriented to power boating know this. Tony was part of such a club when he won Swiftsure and it is my great fear and prediction that he will be converted to a pure power boater in the next few years. He very rarely attends Society meetings any more.

    Coming from a power boat background, I know well how this works. Once the sailboater has advenced from smaller sailers to a boat over 45 foot (which is a power boat disguised as a sailboat) they are enticed by a yacht club to join and from that point on they are worked on to move to a pure power vessel because these vessels better fit the shore based accomodations to whith the yacht club would have to dredge otherwise. The answer of course is to design larger sailboats with swing keels.
