My Hobie 16 (3236) reached 20 knots many times, and it cost only $1800, new. Impress me some more.

Featured in Carl's "Wooden boat of the week" recently. Owned by Steve Clark inspired by drawings his dad did.

I am not nor was not allergic to water. I do not go sailing to defecate or eat.

I've heard of utilitarian sail vessels happily breaking 15 knots on a single square rig and using solar navigation in overcast skies by use of polarized birefringent sights.

Had their sailors met the fancy ship being discussed here they would have marveled at its miraculous rope and sail materials and upon seeing the tv burned the crew as witches.

You have probably heard all about them as a kid but seen misrepresentations of helmet accessories worn on the battlefield that were only worn infrequently in ceremony by leaders if ever.
