    Default Modern classic p0rn

    I can imagine sailing with a few of you across a stretch of water somewhere in France on her. Maybe some day.

    Be wary of your critics, at peace with your decisions, and work hard to be a better man.

    Real life sailing this beautiful boat. I likely very much - perhaps my ideal boat.

    Pretty clean deck. I wonder how much water gets in via the bowsprit opening?
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    I am sure you could design a proper beautiful gasket for me to keep the green water out.

    Dude? I am beginning to wonder about your design cred.

    Don’t they have corks up there?

    Kidding. I think the whole sprit looks odd. Depending on the boat, I like them “droopy” or following the sheer. This one seems to be pok8ng up a bit. It just looks odd, to me.

    Peace,

    I trhink that it has been taken care of as much as needed without undue complication. At 1:28 of the first vid you posted it shows the interior arrangement of the sprit mechanism. There seems to be a gland of sorts at the structural penetration that would keep most of the water out, and drips from the gland would be caught in the little cofferdam a few inches aft. That probably drains through a small, virtually invisible, hole in the hull. In such an elegantly sorted-out boat, I would have expected a bit cleaner routing of the sprit rigging, though. But I am just getting overly worked up, apparently, over what is essentially a very minor blemish on the complexion of a very beautiful girl.

    i am more open minded now. Classic and modern must coexist. Who cares what the bow sprit looks like if you the owner are in the cockpit!

    I love her lines. Some really nice design details. Great p0rn, Ted.

    It's nice, but I'm not sure I understand it. Round the cans racers just want fast. Don't need faux teak decks for fast. Classic sailors want classic. That plastic smell and feel just doesn't go away under a faux teak deck. So while it's a really pretty picture, I don't know who is going to write a check for it.

    That is a huge companionway hatch.

    Extremely pricey, I would imagine.

    Phil Y, from what I saw of the interior in the first vid posted, I'd say that it is cold-moulded wood construction....

    Thanks, I didn't watch the video. That redeems it, somewhat.

    The smaller Tofinous I think they try to sell as a one-design class.

    All the better for pulling the sail off the deck quickly during a racing sail-change...

    Presumably she's very light, and the boat won't flood through that when on her beam ends, being dragged sideways by a runaway kite. I've been there in a 24 foot sport boat. Spreaders in the water for quite some several long minutes. It was interesting. But she rode so high there was no water coming in.
