    It sure does not look like it is in their modern product line.

    aren't they collaborating with bmw to produce battery electric boats?
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Nice styling.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    I'll have a garage full of Porsches before I can afford a Hinckley.

    Hickley bought Morris. I knew this because I met some people with a very nice Morris 'sailboat' in the islands , it impressed me .

    I believe Hinckley will still build a sailboat but on a custom order basis only.

    Didn't they get laughed out when they tried to copyright "Picnic Boat"?

    I’ve mentioned before that the rental we stay at is alongside the Hinckley service yard in Southwest Harbor. There are usually 4-6 Morrises awaiting their turn at the travel lift in May.
