    Question Recognize this one?

    Thinking Breton. No photo credit given. Reminds me of some of Vivier's lines. This is heavily built carvel on frames. Is there a "Chapelle" of French boats? Would like to look at these lines.

    I recognise that one. It's not a Vivier, although looks like it. It goes to Semaine Du Golfe. Designed by Yann Maufret. Built 1993. There's a few pictures of her on the site. Her name is Fal Ben of Arradon.

    and for 60 euros you can go out in her.

    Wow! Very good Ed. Knew it wasn't Vivier, but had to be in his neighborhood. Will dig into this. Thanks a lot-

    Just in:

    "Your pictured boat is known as a "Misainier d'Arz et d'Ilur", which are two islands of the Morbihan gulf. It is much larger than Aber but I agree they look as belonging to the same family! They were used mostly to carry people and goods between the islands and the mainland.



    Kind regards"

    She's a brick house! Deceptive first photo. A beauty nonetheless. Cross her with Mikey Floyd's "Salty Heaven" and I'd build it.

    Would that be a Kurylko Myst?

    Now you're scaring me Ed. Your boat? I'll have to say she is very pretty. There is one in our TSCA chapter. Never sailed her. The guy doesn't allow anyone to touch her except when she is aground. Then it is all hands on deck. My Sooty Tern has sold me on the Balanced lug though. And, that is after years of sailing IOR, Lasers and Moths. That is a sweetheart though.

    There was a similar boat on the North Devon coast, Clovelly Picarooner



    Smaller though, a tad under 16ft.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.
