new flats boat?
 
Tracy and myself are starting to get bored watching the garden grow and our son Nolan will be ending high school in one year. We may have decided that we are made of gypsy blood, anyway till we are too old to do so so we are thinking of a perfect cruising boat to sail again in. This one boat that we are interested in is so different than our old Mason 44. I could fish flats anywhere in the world with her as she just draws 1 meter and can be beached. She is made to go anywhere in the world even the cold climates above 50 degrees north or south. Would she make a good flats boat or what. Shoot us down if you think this is crazy or is this a poor idea in modern cruising sail boats. :smokin:

OC. Forgive me if I'm halucinating but the photos show a shot of it in an inch of trickle. Now that's shallow! LOL! Go for it

Oh here...
 
Googles three times b4 I got back to this propwash:D Actually I saw one of those someplace it might have been here in PA! Looks good to me. Being shallow draft do they complete a rollover quicker in a "knockdown"?

absolutely do it

The boss told me I need to go to France soon and buy the Boreal. If we do she would be ready in spring 2013. Now I'm nervous:eek: God, new house being built soon and a new custom boat I think I'm going to need my blueprint eyes tuned up and my French which is non existent. WE, We, al la la. We will do flats fishing around the world for a good fee, you will just have to find us.

I feel your pain.
 
Those demanding bosses are tough to deal with :lildevl:

OC - After looking at the pics I had to wipe the drool from the keyboard before I could type this reply. The stuff dreams are made of... "Godspeed" seems appropriate.

Go...never, ever miss a 'green light' from the boss!!
:smile:

Thanks guys, The Boss is awwwwwesome!
Looks like I'll go over and talk business, hopefully do a sea trial between 3/21 and 3/25.
I think they only have sole fishing in that part of Northern France. 22 foot tides from what I hear.

This is beginning to sound like a serious itch that needs scratching.

Off topic, do you remember the wianno senior that was striped down to the skeleton at my cousins boat shop? I was google searchin on pleasant bay and found the link below. If you scroll down the thread you'll find a pic of the boat, "Gretchen".

beautiful boats. Were the bull and bear in Annapolis for race week?

OC 02-18-2011 05:45 PM

Shat Fred, What you trying to do corrupt me with wooden boats? I've owned one too many Al Masons and Philip Rhodes to go that route again. Never the less Gretchen is extreamly beautiful and it is good that someone loves her. I will go back to wood but not till I'm retired from offshore sailing. Those beauties you posted would be just the right size for an 80 year old.:cool: Did Karl do the work on Gretchen?
