The fun never stops....
They look great, AK. In a surprising bit of serendipity, I was planning to write about the Brooke-designed Sunburst class next week.
Any interest in that?
Best to you, Carl
Thanks, all. I'll be paying for it myself, so.... sounds like the Grand Chancellor. I'll book right away. What are the dates for the festival '15?
So, what's the name of that cool-looking hotel next to the Festival? See, I'm going to book early.
Oh, geeez. I'm in the Bilge? What happened?
I'll pop, Phil. Stay tuned.....
Wow -- You don't waste any time. Thanks so very much, all.
And stickied to boot.
I'm back, and here's My Wooden Boat of the Week:
Thanks so much, and I missed you too.
Today, My Wooden Boat of the Week travels to Indonesia... with a bit of ethnography.
A great artist: Aldo Cherini, with whom I was previously unfamiliar.
And I will be gone for the next two...
Thank you so much, Larks. I can handle B&Bs just fine.
Geez, Paul -- Why didn't you FIND me? I'm generally camped out at Family BoatBuilding, First Aid kit in hand.
Taz has always been a dream of mine. It's now in the hands of my travel agent. ...
You people are SO great. Sorry, Duncan -- Queensland is just a dream at this point.......
I'll work on he details in the next month or so.
I'm with you, Dryfeet. I have a couple of moorings, and I don't like trailering except twice a year.
The best single-handed sailboat I've owned (secret) was an Alerion 28; not wooden. ...
Thanks, Rick. I do know that. I'll just being recon, not official work. I'll be on vacation/holiday, not for WB.
I've always loved the idea of Taz as a whole. I want to go sailing a lot, but...
You don't know them, RF? The last I knew, John was part of the organiz(s)ing group of the Festival. And he used to work for us here at the WB School. But I haven't spoken with him for a couple of...
Yes please, Rick!
And how are my friends John and Deedee Deegan?
I'm thinking of making a recon tour/holiday in early '14. If you're ready?
And waiting for the airfares to drop a bit.....

Sadly, Warwick died before he could complete all the testing on it. I'm not sure if anyone has taken up the project in his stead.
I wrote about it here: http://boats.woodenboat.com/?p=2185
Yes, it floats.
Do you know about it?
It's at My Wooden Boat of the Week, here:
What do you think?

No uproar at all, Jay. You are one of the best.
Thanks, all, for keeping this thread alive from 2011.
(Yes, Jay was cranky that day/night. I've read Gardner's autobiography, and he was undoubtedly an accomplished sailor prior to the TV show.)...
is the topic of My Wooden Boat of the Week.
And I apologize for the delay today.
A nice-enough class, I think. Are there any of them outside CA?
Best to you,...
Jim -- You doing SUCH a great job! Please keep it up.
Best wishes to you, Carl
That's a winner in my book.
Thanks, Jim. The designer was just responding to the needs of the clients.
But I understand what you say.
is a new design and build from Sam Devlin.
And she is the topic of this week's My Wooden Boat of the Week.
She's under construction now. Please tell me what you think?
LOA 24'; B, 7'4:; Draft, 20", Jim.
Displacement? No clue yet.
Cruise at 16-18 knots; max 20-22 knots.
Fuel consumption? No clue too.
I'm told it does, Mickey. Still a little vague on a couple of important details. And hopefully not $600/hoist this time.
They seem like nice people (as in Rock Hall), but there are some politics...
Mickey and all -- We're trying to produce the WOOD Regatta at James River Yacht Club in Charleston, SC , in May 2014. Still working on the i's and t's..... No intention of thread highjacking, and...
Dear MiddleAge -- I'm pretty sure, given the year 1964, she is plywood-built. And a nice new Awlgrip paint job.
I do too, Gareth. He's a good 'un.
And a good piece here:
It really and truly is, KJ. I'm a sucker for gorgeous. She's powered by a (just rebuilt) 185 hp Chris*Craft.
Please, I beg your forbearance, dear Forum members. Occasionally on My Wooden Boat of the Week, I write about my boats, past, present, and future.
In the past, I've written about DEVA -- my L....
Funny -- She's not on the site anymore.
Here she is, JS. But I didn't pay anything remotely near the asking price:
I'm doing my part of the community. I just bought a boat from the Online Classifed section today.
Congratulations to the billionaire, Larry. What a great series.
But I've been wearing red socks for two weeks, and hoping the Kiwis would win.
It was unbelievable TV. I've watched almost all...
As I mentioned yesterday in my post here about our new post service, The Whiskey Plank, today we are pleased to tell you about our also new blog service for members of WoodenBoat.com (it's a free...
The Whiskey Plank. We've invited some WB contributors to post blogs. The first one is by Reuel Parker, on "The Soul of a Wooden Boat."
Please read it -- if you want -- and comment there.
I've always liked this design from Ross.

Not quiet at all. Just scheming.... Book me for '15!
Good for you, Mickey -- Congratulations!
Just don't forget the 210....
Thanks, Cape Fox.
I have no idea who amateurs constructed the iron keel. Anybody have ideas?
You can always try emailing one of the associations.
.. is a different kind of design.
Please check out My Wooden Boat of the Week, and tell me what you think?
Thanks so much, Carl
Interesting -- the ones the Norwegians built for the Great Lakes had a larger sail area.
It's always been one of my favorites.... I'm sorry to say, I can't find very much about the class.
