    Pretty awesome. I am on the Facebook pages of many metre classes, but I hadn't seen a 9mR before. Thank you, Mr. Baggins.

    You're most welcome, Mr. Lake. I think the slightly smaller 8m C/R (cruiser/racers), many of which were built by McGruer were almost ideal in concept and execution. Still, like the 9mR or C/R they're pretty sizeable boats. Cornu designed some great double-enders to the 8m C/R and 9m C/R rule.

    The Cornu boats are much newer designs from the 1950's. I like the earlier designs from the beginning of the 1900's, some of which predated the meter rule, but could race under that classification

    Mickey, I'm up for taking on Ilmen. You got Pandora right?
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Beautiful boats. Mr. Anker was truly the master of the aesthetically pleasing lines drawing.
