I'd gladly take either. Great candidates for NW use. Assuming, of course, that they came with an endowment - to finance slip, operating, and maintenance expenses... <G>

I like them both, too. Maybe not the best or worst of worlds, but some of each.

Is photo #1 missing a mizzen boom?

Might have just launched or be on her way out since normally the main would be furled and probably the jib would be bagged. Or maybe they have the masts for decoration and motor all the way.

In the early eighties a cousin was trying to get me to buy Burma. She was then and remains one of the best kept boats around, but is too mechanical for my style.

There are many compromises to a boat. In dreaming of my perfect boat, I really wanted a pilot house and to then have both inside and outside helms. Can't get it all but certainly one of the first year's adventures with Meg will be designing the right cockpit shelter.

To each his own, but I consider weather protection and shade to be absolute essentials... and spent a fortune for custom canvas on my boat. Thankfully, they did an excellent job (Neil Thurston, at Thurston Sails), and aside from minor repairs, it has held up really well over the past 13 years.

An 'endowment'. Nice way of putting it.
