    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I keep coming back to FG builds of S&S designs.

    When I'm in a CCA mood I favor the chris craft apache


    When my IOR fetish needs scratching I turn to the S&S34 (mostly because she's early-IOR, while they still had meaningful mainsails)

    Sure is hard to find any fault with a Morris 29. They are just lovely. Maybe my ideal boat.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    I've always been partial to the Pearson Vanguard.

    I know a guy that sails his to Catalina from San Pedro several times a year. Fully capable of going down the coast to Cabo. Sailed up to Santa Barbara. Also the boat can be towed to the Sea of Cortez for winter escapes. Or trailered up to 1500 miles of San Francisco's waterways, lake Tahoe and in inland passage to Alaska.

    Those old Pearsons certainly earned their money. You still see a lot of them come up for sale, boats that have been well-maintained and sailed over a 60 year period. It's good to know that when the poop flies your boat can take it, and more.

    If you're sailing somewhere that "poop" is flying, my advice would be to find less polluted waters to pursue one's boating activities.

    Unregulated pump out locations are never conducive to a pleasant day on the water.

    I will take this one. A 1969 Allied Seabreeze Yawl. Full keel with a board to help her upwind.

    No one has mentioned the Alden Caravelle yet. Beautiful on the mooring and under sail.

    Swan 51

    https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/swan-51



    In 1981, Nautor Swan got away from their longtime relationship with S&S, and started a relationship with German Frers that still exists today. The 51 was his first design for them. She was missing a mast and her hull was plastic. Everything else about her was nearly perfect. I put her at #3 favorite in the list of boats who I've had the honor of being part of their lives.

    After further consideration - a Leonardo Yacht would be pretty sweet.
